1/72 scale kits of the Yakovlev YAK-25 : various Amodel kits and Red Hurricane
review / modelling report
... continued from page 1....
On to the AModel kit.... The kit particulars and assembly notes are similar as described on page 1.....
I added a metal spar made out of a
bicycle wheel spar. Holes were drilled at the wing-fuselage mating surface
and the spar will run a considerable length into the lef-wing halve - fuselage
- right wing halve.
Also here, first fit the nacelles onto the wing before proceeding further. There is a bit plastic shrinkage at the wing tip fairings, fill this up and sand smooth.
In order to fit the horizontal tail plane, enlarge the gap to fit it in. I was not unsure what part #67 at the tail was, but simply added it. Is it a drone antenna for the RV-II ?
The ALCLAD II system was used as well,
After applying the metallic like paint,
the details were added. Decals were as per kit.
A nice model in the Soviet collection
of the Mandrake....
