Here are a few photos of the latest model that left my hobby bench.

It's an An-71, in 1:144 scale, built using Amodel's kit.

Thank you all for your kind comments.


These kits need some massaging Big Smile, as can be seen in the following photo.

But even though they can be challenging, their catalogue covers such unusual subjects that they are irresisteble Embarrassed
