Hello guys and girls.  I built this Zlin 242l to represent the Zlin 242l operated by the Macedonian Air Force.

The kit itself is really bad.  Fit is terrible.  I made new cockpit details like seatbelts.  I had to redo the glass parts.  I made new ones with some vacuforming.  I also made the wing landing light.  Cut out the horizontal stabilizer and the flaps.  Painted it in Gunze and Tamiya paints.  

The decals used are some old ones from Bluerider, really bad decals that needed a lot of work in order to eliminate the silvering and make them conform to the surface.  I also made the base and glued the model to it because it was a tail seater.

Enjoy the photos.
