Yak 28 PP

Recommended Posts

Nice!  If it's not too late, I'd ditch the red intake bullet tip.  Bobcat tells you to do that, but I've only seen one museum bird thus painted.  No evidence of it on any in-service Yak-28P (not a PP by the way, that's a different animal!).

 

Really looking forward to getting cracking on mine!

One of those designs that shouts 'Cold War Soviet' - would luuuurve on in 1:32 - maybe one day  :)

Good point J., the confusion probably raised by usage of the red engine plugs. They partial cover the edge  of the nacelle that was slightly darker(stainless) the  the rest of the aluminium surface. See picture below.

 

without covers, slightly darker, than the rest

and with the intake cover, note the small white number

In the books I have they show all the interceptors as bare metal the only camo version I've found of a 28 is the rec and strike versions.
