LF: 1/72 Yak-38 single seater kit
« on: June 28, 2018, 09:38:49 PM »
Hi guys,

while browsing recently through some old Spinners Strike Fighters screenshots, I got inspired by one featuring a single seater Yak-38.
I went through all better known online shops and auction sites here in Europe, I also reached out to someone on Scalemates, but unfortunately I came out empty handed (the chap on Scalemates is separated from his stash momentarily, so no joy there).

Long story short: one Revell/ Tsukuda or Amodel kit of the Yak-38 single seater will make my day, if I can find one. I can do PayPal and accept as good as any offer (kit should be unstarted - box condition and decals do not matter) from within the E.U. Receiving post from outside the Union is unfortunately more than a pain you-know-where :-[

Also, I tried getting comfy with an Hobbycraft kit, but there was just no chemistry at all  :P

So, if any of you can help, I'd very much appreciate it.

Cheers,
Niki

Just wanted to say thanks again.
Got a reply from the shop and have just paid for the kit. Hopefully it will turn up next week.

Look for it in the Finished Projects section, hopefully [repeating myself here] in a not too distant future  ;D

Cheers,
Niki

Delighted I could help.
I know how hard it can be to find certain kits, really frustrating!!!!!
My Mrs is a whizz at finding stuff, and gave me a few pointers years ago. (She's sorry now! ;D)

Searching by images is by far the best, a little time consuming, but much quicker in the long run!

Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

Cheers... Ray
