Eduard 1/48 Yak-3 week-end
« on: June 22, 2019, 10:09:35 AM »
Something lighter than what I build actually... Will be built from the box as a recreation but also to test the new range of AK Real Colors: My preferred paints are Gunze ones but actually it becomes difficult to find all the references here in Belgium. So, having seen the new AK Real Colors (also a laquer paint, like Gunze or Tamiya) I want to give it a try. And there are cheaper than the Japanese import products...

As well I have original samples of this colors (somewhere stored), note that colors are black grey and mid dark blue grey.

Those paints look nice; to be tested quickly...
I've bought a set for WWII Soviet fighters end of the war. Have also bought other sets: Belgian Aircrafts 1970-1990 & 1990-2000's.

All the parts of the Yak are removed from sprue and half wings glued together

Little work before to begin with the base paint: removing the parts from the sprues, a little bit of putty needed...
