Navin Bala got everything looking perfect on his older 1/72 Matchbox Dassault Mystere IVA.  Navin did plenty of scratch building and rescribed the panel lines and added rivets to bring this kit up to present day standards.  He then gave it a bare metal finish complete with very careful panel shading. 

Leonard Prakasam is on a quest to build every Indian Air Force aircraft and his 1/72 Hasegawa Mig-21 FL (Type-77) is the latest model in his mission.  This attractive MiG-21 has gentle paint fading and carefully applied panel like shading giving it a wonderful level of realism. 

Polly Singh has very high regards for the 1/72 Azur FRROM Dassault Mystere IV and in his article his gives you insight on how to make this into a  truly exceptional model of this classic jet.  Polly didn't miss anything and his Mystere IV with Tiger noseart and Indian markings are a treat to see.. 

Murli Rajan has got everything looking perfect 1/48 Airfix Sepecat Jaguar.  Murli added a full weapons load that really compliments his Jaguar and gives it a very aggressive look.  I quite enjoyed seeing this Jaguar. 

Navin Bala has done a marvelous job building and finishing his  1/72 Valom Ouragan Toofani.  This jet is finished in a custom mixed tan colour that really shows off the lines of this classic Indian jet.  I love the custom made noseart.....it looks perfect.
