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
Another view :

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,
Yak 36 "Freehand", ART MODEL, 1/72 nd scale
