Thanks for posting the great walkaround! I have the 1/144 BOA decals for this aircraft, so these shots will help quite a bit.

Would that be a C-Czech? Thanks for posting the pics Pavel - it looks very nice. And in contrast, "the World's richest country" (as the Norwegian politicians are so fond of referring to Norway whenever they tour the world's poorer nations with an open cheque book) has a tired old Dassault Falcon 20, that was purchased second hand back in the 70s...

What's wrong with those Tupolevs? They were excellent planes for their time.

Great set of decals, no? BOA did a great job with that sheet.

Ahoy Pavel

Not sure if I told you, but my best friend here in Japan is Czech. As a birthday gift I built a small 1/72 Mig 21 in Czech markings for him, and did a little name plate on the base for him. He loved it.. Sadly, he has had enough of Japan after 8 years and is moving his young family back to either Czech or Germany in a few months, so I have decided to build him a going away present.. I think this may be it...

Anyone got a set of decals they want to swap for a kit or something? Hint hint...

Chris

Great looking airplane, thanks for sharing. I wish I would have been able to see it in person when I was in Czech Republic earlier this year.
