  1. My latest build is a Yak 11 trainer as flown by the Austrian Airforce in the 1950's. I have to say this was an exasperating build, as the kit suffered from several areas of deficiency, mostly in fit, but it had its fair share of other awkwardnesses. My late mother in law was Austrian, and because of that family tie, I've already built some planes as flown by the Austrian Air force (AAF) and have several more to do. We used to see planes and helicopters from the AAF bimbling along the valley below us on our fairly regular visits to Austria to visit relatives. Ummm .. "bimbling along the valley below us", you say? Yes, as the relatives we stayed with lived half way up the valley, about 3,000 ft up, and there was another 2 or 3,000 feet of valley above us. So we'd, as I say, often see planes following the river at the bottom of the valley, below us, which was quite an interesting sight! When I saw the model advertised and it had decals for an AAF plane, and wasn't trainer yellow, but a more modest blue grey, It had to join the others in the stash. It's not a particularly big plane, but it is noticeably bigger than the Zlin Z-126 trener which I've recently built in 1/72. The kit suffered from bad fit. It's easy to blame failings on the kit (and you'll see plenty in the photos) but genuinely, this kit don't fit. The worst was the cockpit, where the instructions have an arrow from the "floor" to vaguely near the fuselage side wall. The "floor" of the cockpit is so narrow, that if you fixed it to one side, it would be 6 mm or so distant from the other half of the fuselage. I made a sort of frame for the floor to fix on to is the cockpit opening at what I thought looked like middle and the right height.. The wing didn't fit to the fuselage, the cowling - fitted perfectly on one side, but was 2 mm too wide on the other side. Much sanding and cursing, even though I could have used a shim. The little bit of etch I used went on ok, but there's an area on the fuselage forward of the canopy with a vent covered by a grill, but there isn't a mesh grill in the p/e for this. It does kind of cry out for an etch piece there; checked the stash of unused etch from previous builds and had nothing useful, so left it in the end. I used some Brengun P/e, yahu instrument panels, montex masks, some albion alloys tube, and humbrol 247 to represent the blue gray colour. Seatbelts were from some generic Japanese set, they aren't particularly visible so I think I'll get away with it. Much cursing, sanding, filling and almost binning went on, for far too long on this build. The cockpit canopy gave me grief too, being not quite the same shape as the opening on the fuselage. In the end, after I somehow managed to get a superglue trace on the canopy, I filled the gaps (badly) with Canopy 580 which hasn't improved the look. Probably masking and painting it off the model didn't help. Still, as my mate in Canada says when I tell him the litany of woes around my builds, "a blind man would be glad to see them". latest on the bench is the Revell 1/72 He 162 A-1, which from Scalemates looks to be a re box of a Lindberg model, from something like 1965, though the box I have shows a copyright date of 1984. I've already had as little go at dry fitting some parts - they fit excellently! I almost damn near fainted.
