Yak-28 - Bobcat - 1/48

Hi guys,
This is my Yak 28, from Bobcat (1/48). It's a tough kit to built, with a lot of parts and a complex camouflage. The notice is useless to identify the correct color references, that's why I' made some "guess". I' made a picture of all the color I' used for this kit. For an unknown reason i' was not able to fit the wing tip landing gear : they appears to be far too long. After checking that the main landing gear was correctly positioned, i' came to the conclusion that i' probably messed-up the dihedral of the main wing, leading to the wing tip being too low. Therefore I' had to represent this landing gear retracted, which is unrealistic on ground. I' also had a strange chemical reaction between the kit plastic and the surfacer.... forcing me too re-sand the kit entirely..... :< ;(.
Anyway, I' managed to finish it, after all.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Guys, I'dont really know what happend with the surfacer.... it just went like that a few minutes after i'spayed it on the kit. I'suspect a kind of chemical reaction with the plastic and the thinner that i'used with the surfacer. Really anoying anyway...
Thanks for your encouraging comments.

I thought of making the other version in metal finish but this looks a lot better, not in the least because the kit is so well made

Thanks Francky, I used Mr Surfacer 500. I'was thinking of doing a metal finish, but the overall surface was not clean and smooth enough for that. Thanks for your comments
