Wot?  You no like da mixed colours?

As I said, these supposedly are prototypes so I would expect the final product to be al grey.  Hmmm...speaking of which, maybe a modernised Yak-28P in two tone grey scheme similar to this:

Most likely mould fettling test shots, different colours for the various sprues would enable
a quick determination of which parts/moulds need work in terms of fit.

Or compared to my 1/72 kit where you have to carve the parts from the flash before even trying the fit.

Here is a near final test shot of the upcoming Bobcat 1:48 Yak-28. Looking very good. We hope to have more updates on this kit (expected release is November) and Bobcat in the coming days!

I hope they followed with one of the glass nosed variants ... or perhaps someone can do a conversion set.
