I finished this model in January of this year, but never posted it here, so might as well. I’m an absolute aficionado when it comes to Soviet civil airliners, so I was happy to get my hands on this kit. It’s a great resin kit by AWM. The most accurate Yak-40 kit on the market and with the current exchange rate with the Rubble, not too expensive. I had a great time building it, but I had some trouble in the beginning with the glue as my superglue that I normally use didn’t work with this kind of resin. Eventually I used a special all-purpose glue that worked really well, but had the disadvantage of having a drying time of 24 hours. The cockpit decals are once again made by me, but the window decals are from PAS decals (I also bought the kit there). As it was snowing in The Netherlands in January, I thought it would be fun to make the pictures in the snow. Russia is after all often associated with cold weather (strange actually, as it can be +40 Degrees Centigrade in summer). Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pictures! Regards, Martijn
