New Review: L-29 Ejection Seats

Recommended Posts

The Czechoslovakian Aero Vodochody L-29 Delfin (NATO code Maya) became the standard jet trainer for the Warsaw Pact Air Forces. First flight was on April 5, 1959.   Two-thirds of the over 3,000 aircraft manufactured have served with the Soviet Air Force as its standard basic, intermediate, and weapons platform trainer.  The L-29 has seen combat in several wars, notably the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the Nigerian Civil War in the sixties.  Many have been sold to the private sector with some performing in airshows and air races.

This set is specifically designed for the AMK 1/48 L-29 kit.  Of course it will work in the Eduard kit as well since Eduard used the AMK molds for Eduard's enhanced release.  I don't have the earlier Planet Models resin kit, but I'm sure these seats will dress it up as well.
