Hard (and expensive) part was finding the right paint colours. I bought the bottles advertising the right FS numbers, but just was not happy with the look. Especially on the Lizard scheme. So I mixed my own colours using the suggested colours as a base. Some darkened a bunch (the brown) some lightened, (the bright blue).

Not the easiest kit . But I have built it once or twice now, so I know what to look for. All represent aggressor schemes used by 419 squadron out of Cold Lake back in the day.
