Hi friends,
that sweet is my next build:

It is an Hasegawa kit, repacked by Revell
The interior of the jet is well detailed, but the fuselage must be rescribed if you want good looking aircraft.
Here are the parts:






And the decal sheet for three versions of the plane:


I'll start her as soon as I can, maybe tomorrow

Cheers fellas

Nice work on the Lear interior thus far. Those jets are very pleasing to the eye.

Hi there

Many thanks for posting this build. I'm fascinated, because it's a kit I've never found in either the original Hasegawa version or the Revell re-box.

All the best

The kit looks really sharp and you're in for a good start on it! I'm following with interest!

Going for the look of the crew member I suppose you'll do a civilian machine?

You've done a good job on that one, absolutely excellent result! I love the Learjet - the mother of all bizjets and still going strong!

Eagerly awaiting the crew...
