Art Model 1/72 YaK-141 Freestyle

Recommended Posts

spacer.png

YaK-141(initially called YaK-41M),the first supersonic vertical takeoff fighter of the world. Compare with YaK-38, which is absolutely more comprehensive. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Yakovlev was fund by Lockheed Corporation, which was developing the JSF X-35. Unfortunately it never went into service in the end.

At first I thought that's a bit rough for a jet. This is until I read it is a retired stored plane and it all makes sense. You made a really good job of

ageing it  and making it look like a sad forgotten plane.

Salt sea air carried by the prevailing winds? - Indeed this Yak-141 looks like it has been enduring salty air for a long while. Very well done!

Excellent model carter478 - great weathering.

 

Note that there are TWO Yak-141's on display in Moscow - the one at Monino...

... and the one at the Zadorozhny museum....

They are both coded 141 - and they differ in detail - note the yaw 'puffer' at the rear end of the one above - this is not present on the Monino example.

The Zadorozhny example is now coded 75.

 

There are other differences - some that you point out in your photos....

Ouch, I can see why you needed filler!

Still, it's great that the kit is available. We seem to be blessed with a veritable avalanche of interesting products these days.

When I started making models back in early 80s the hobby was going through the doldrums and the only company that seemed to take risks was Matchbox. 

What happy times we live in!
