Hi everybody,
Here's my last one : ART MODEL's YAK 36 "Freehand".
A great kit molded in light grey with very nice recessed panel lines, some resin parts (pistachio colour !) including a seat, jet exhausts and rocket pods, a very clear canopy and a good quality decal sheet  for the prototypes.
The only problem encountered was the instruction sheet, very vague, showing the parts positionement at random. I found help on internet !
Here is the model assembled and painted :

The cockpit tub consists of a floor, a seat, a dashboard and a control column. More details were added by building walls, side consoles and rudder pedals with plastic card.
The interior was painted medium grey and I used spare decals for the side consoles

Putting the kit together was not a problem at all, just some work to sand and prepare the parts before gluing :

I had fun building this kit . ART MODEL is a new brand offering original subjects to put on our shelves...I bought 2 more !
Critics and comments welcome,
Pierre

Beutiful build.

Excellent model of an important Soviet prototype, Pierre.

 

The build and finish are superb !

 

The original at Monino has been painted in this totally fictitious colour scheme......  :weep:

Wonderful work Pierre. The way you have rendered the worn metal finish is particularly impressive.

That's actually weathered aluminum, and you have really nailed it for the right look.  Definitely nice work.

Thank you all for your comments . I am planning to make a collection of soviet VTOL aircraft, the next one might be a Yak 38 from AMODEL.

A great model of one of Russia's many weirdly beautiful aircraft :)

Excellent Freehand, Pierre!  This particular aeroplane has somehow always reminded me of a catfish with wings!

 I think it looks really cool, both the model and the real thing! I too have this kit in the stash, General Melchett forced me to buy it!
