general melchett Posted August 7, 2019 Share Posted August 7, 2019 (edited) Hi all, here's another project I finished recently for July's issue of Airfix Model World, this time a big lump of Soviet heavy metal in the form of the 1/48th Bobcat Yak-28P Firebar, a fantastic looking aircraft that seemed to be supersonic just sitting on the ground. Considering it's Bobcat's first kit in this scale I think they did a great job on the old beast. Being a huge fan of Soviet Cold War aircraft I never thought we'd see a 1/48th IM Firebar, let alone two, as Hobby Boss have just released theirs, contrary to some reports it's a completely different kit. Bobcat, we need more quarter-scale Soviet heavies, how about a Fiddler to go with it! Primed with Stynylrez Gloss Black (polished within an inch of its life) and finished using my favourite MRP metallic lacquers, AK Xtreme Metal enamels, AKAN acrylics, AK filters and weathered using Abteilung oils and AMMO MIG pastels. Final finish protective layer applied courtesy of AK Intermediate Gauzy Agent... Great fun...in fact I've got another one to build at some point, either as the short-nosed earlier version or maybe, if I'm feeling in a particularly masochistic mood, a conversion to the outrageously hopeless but interesting Yak-28-64 version. Thanks for looking Melchie Edited August 10, 2019 by general melchett 59 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
