ARMA Hobby Yak-1b 1:72
In contrast to my Plattformwagen, I had a far better experience with this stunning kit. I can’t sing its praises enough. Despite being a fairly young company, this kit’s quality equals if not exceeds Tamiya and Eduard kits. I’m not kidding. The engineering is fantastic. The surface detail is exquisite yet subtle.
The instructions were very clear and detailed. Five color/marking options are provided and illustrated in beautiful colored guides. Each option based on a specific WWII Yak pilot and links are provided to the pilot/aircraft history on the ARMA web site. The aircraft I chose was on flown by a Free French pilot lent to the USSR. Note the roundel under the canopy.
