Let (Yak) C-11 1/72 RS Models


Recommended Posts

Hi fellow modelers,

 

This is a tribute build dedicated to one of our club member, Mr. Zdeněk Bedřich, former Czechoslovak Airlines and sports pilot, great modeler and fellow, who passed away in 2014. On 12th October 1960 he set up the world speed record whilst flying this Let C-11 on closed circuits (3km and 15-25km) of 464 km/h in the trainers category, which lasted for several years and it is still valid up to now on the national level.

The kit of the Let C-11 comes from RS Model and it was further enhanced with Brengun etched and Rob Taurus vacformed canopy. The civil registration OK-KIK was designed and printed on a laser printer by my fellow David Koktavý. The kit was painted with Gunze Aqueous paints in a light grey color according to Mr.Bedřich memories.

 

Cheers,

Libor

Hi Libor

 

You built another nice kit and I like very much the homemade registration letters. Can you tell us more about the support?

Hi Patrick,

 

the letters were printed on a transparent decal sheet (I think it was made by Propagtem) on regular office laser printer. The letters were then over sprayed with gloss varnish in order to give them some protection as the laser printed items may be more sensitive whilst handling them on the kit's surface, and eventually I trimmed them out of the sheet. 

 

Cheers

Lovely! The little details like the lowered landing gear indicators really make the difference, and I like how you make an unassuming and plain scheme work. Truly inspiring.

By far the best build of a Moose I have seen- in any scale, Libor! Beautiful model and looks more like a 1/48 model. Looks like the RS kit is a pretty good one.

These two quotes sum it all up for me and say it better than I could. A really great model.
