Arma Hobby Yak-1B 1/72

August 31, 2020 · in Aviation · · 16 Comments

Hallo to everyone, I'm a lazy modeler. If I work on a hard project for a long time (many changes, conversions in new models...), then I need a break.

Normally I work on a simple kit (often an aircraft) without changes. I open the box, I build the kit, colors, decals, just a little bit weathering and stop. I see a model finished... finally and relax, ready for hard project.

Well, this time I choose a model from , a polish brand. I was amazed about the kit, I didn't know it.

Each plastic part has a very fine detail, every joint is precise.

The box contains photo etched parts and decals for six different model.

The model is build completely with the parts of the box only, no changes.

I'm not satisfied too much for the weathering, but I had fun.

  1. Not bad at all ! I wish I could do such a nice job !
    I build In a similar ways too. I try to build right out of the box. In my case figuring out how to handle a particular model presents its own difficulties and solutions .Or how far I can take it and make it look good w.o. Making or breaking too many parts!

  2. A fine looking Yak, Paolo.
