Aero L-39 Albatros
MPM's 1/48 scale
Aero L-39 Albatros is available online from
Here is MPM's 1/48 scale Aero L-39 Albatros.
The kit was built straight from the box and finished in
the Libyan Air Force markings that were included. As it always happens,
just a couple of days after I finished this model, the resin update sets
came out! Too bad, since this kit really needs a help from aftermarket
parts, especially the cockpit which is a nightmare to fit into the
fuselage; and the non-existent wheel wells and doors.
Canopy and tip tanks landing lights are supplied in
vacuform and the seats' headrests and tailpipe are from resin cast.
Decals are very nicely printed and complete with full
stenciling for each version included with the set.
The only additions I made was a pair of transparent bulbs
from the spare box added to the tip-tanks' landing lights to give some
interest to them; and the rocket launchers that came from the Academy
MiG-21PF kit since no weapons are included in the box but only the pair of
MPM's Albatros is very nice model and a unique subject to
build in 1/48, especially if you add the aftermarket updates now
