  Indian Republic day 



Perfect aircraft as a tribute to Indian Independence Day. A aircraft that served Indian Air Force for that four and half decade and proved its mettle during India Pakistan War of 1965 and 1971.

Kit was built OOB. Fit and finish of the kit is excellent with hardly any fit issues. Had minor fit issues at the fuselage but was corrected. Rivets and recessed panels lines make you love this kit. Though I prefer sticking to 72 scale kits, such beautiful kits makes me go back to 48 scale. Kit comes with Cartograf decals for which one doesn't need to say much. I have painted using Model Master Acrylics.

Hunter I have built is from the No 14 Bulls Squadron of the Indian Air Force that housed other aircrafts like Jaguar. 

Happy Indian Republic Day to all. Jai Hind.
