1/48 Bobcat Yak-28PP Brewer E – White 53


Recommended Posts

Excellent work Mike!  I think the Yak-28 is such a cool piece of Cold War machinery and you have done a great job with yours.  The camo looks excellent and I like the base and pilot too.  I know what you mean about Vallejo "faded" Russian blue - too dark to my eyes - but the Colourcoats grey looks great.  Top job!

Wowser! What an awesome build of an awesome aircraft. Your freehand spraying on the camo is really really nice...wish i had the confidence and skill to do that more often but i get nervous and tend to mask instead. 🙄

Great build.... thanks for sharing...glad it came back from the shelf of doom

Mike it looks great! I too have struggled with AV Vallejo paints sometimes but the colours are excellent. I think you have captured the look of the aircraft very well!

 

Cheers

The Soviet Union came up with lots of wild, weird looking configurations during the cold war, and to me, some of them, while not classically pretty, have a striking beauty about them. Like this Yak, the Tu-22 Blinder with its engines where noone else would consider installing them, the Hind-D, and I'd put the MiG-29 in this category too. They all have a predatory, or Dan Dare kind of beauty to them.

 

The build looks fantastic, well done! It's also one to add to my wishlist :D
