Cheburashka's sister - will she be as troublesome a build?
My second foray into the world of AModel kits...

Pretty much the same kit as the An-72. However, I know the difficulties to expect with this build now, so should be less trouble. Only one version in terms of decals available for this, so she will be in Antonov Design Bureau house colours. Which is what i wanted to do it in anyhow. Will be coating the decals with some Micro-film stuff first to avoid the disaster of the previous kit's set.

As we can see so far, still a reasonable amount of filler required, but the parts were somewhat cleaner than on the An-72, so sat in place a tad better. The tail was not warped, which is a godsend, but the shape at the base still does not conform to the fuselage profile, so needs a bit of filler at that join area on both sides. Again, not quite as bad as last time. So far so good!!
