"Soviet Yak-3 - Plastic Model Aircraft Kit - 1/72 Scale Review"
Alex Biever
This 1/72 scale kit is from a Chinese model company called Hobby Boss. The pros for this kit are as follows: The illustrations and instructions are easy to follow and understand. The components fit very well with hardly any sanding whatsoever. For painting of the aircraft, it features every view you can think of. The decals were easy to take off the paper and apply them to the aircraft although I did have trouble with the larger ones. Fortunately for me, none of them were ripped. The cons for this kit are as follows: I found that the two paint schemes this kit provides; East Russia, 1944 and 157 Squadron 1944 are not very informative at all. I did the East Russia, 1944 version and from its blue, white, and red nose spinner I can assume it’s from the famous Normandie-Niemen squadron/regiment. It was flown by Free French pilots at the suggestion of Charles de Gaulle, leader of the Free French Forces, who felt it important that French servicemen serve on all fronts in the war. Painting the interior of the aircraft is non-existent. Also the colors on the aircraft don’t match at all. For example Gunze Sangyo Mr.Colour 152 Green pearl on East Russia, 1944 is different from 157 Squadron 1944. Finally they do not tell you what shade of red, white, or blue you need to do for the East Russia, 1944 version. In conclusion, I give this kit a rating of 4 stars out of 5. Hobby Boss if you’re reading this, I highly suggest that you do a better job with your paints. Other than that, it’s a solid kit for those who want to move up the difficulty ranks of building model kits.
