looks quite good 8-)

the older Dragon/DML kits arent as accurate and detailed as todays newest releases (Revell F-16A/C, Trumpeter Su-27,...) but they do make for a great source for decals to place on the newer moulded, more accurate models, if you can get a hold of them cheap enough.
on the bench:
-Airbus A400M (Belgian AF)

planned:
-Area 88 Air Base diorama
-MH-60J Jayhawk
-3 x Sepecat Jaguar (RAF, France and Indian AF)

Hi

The su-22 looks ok after a bit of cleanup. Even the f-14 would be ok with new canopy, undercarriage and cockpit. By which time you might as well just build the revell kit!

The dragon kits have much more interesting markings than either revell or trumpeter, and you have to love the box art!
