1/72 Yakovlev Yak-40 Codling (Early Version)



34-35 years ago, I read an interview with the folk who ran EDO floats at the time.  They said the oddest request they had ever received was from a rich Saudi who wanted to put floats on a Yak-40.  You'd need streamlined mounting struts to pick up the main landing gear structural interfaces, but I could see using a set of XC-47C floats for that.  If nothing else, 'twould be a different sort of whif.

Nice 1/48 Mig-9 box art and has 1/72 potential.  One of those off the public's radar little known aircraft.
Don't believe ever saw combat.
