AMX-K 'Kaitiaki'

So the RNZAF briefly used the MB339 back in the 80's & 90's, this is simply the replacement - Hobbyboss 1:48 kit with a re-profiled 'radar nose' from Miliput. Loadout is for a FAC mission, the seven-shot rocket pods are resin items, but I cannot remember which company, the side-by-side rack came from the ancient Tamiya Sea Harrier, the Iris T missiles were donated by an unsuspecting Revell Eurofighter,  the GBU-12 came from a Rafale-C and the targeting pod is from the Hasegawa Weaps set D.

Paint is mixed using Mk.I eyeball method and decals are from Gekko Graphics - long since out of production.
