excellent build from parts made over half a century ago. a lot of the earlier maly kits were fairly well designed by hand but were difficult building due to the tree bark nature of the paper itself their ship line is a good example, hand designed, fairly good detail but poorest quality card stock. again well done sir!

As this is a digitally repainted version, thankfully I didn't have to build it on original cardboard. Design is indeed 54 years old and the parts are not so accurate. But these old kits are really enjoyable and with some scratch modifications you can achieve a pretty nice result.

Great seeing old kits being built. Especially repainted to bring out the colors.

Great model.Very good looking colors.I respectfully disagree about fit of parts-I have seen this model done from original kit by Andy on another forum and did my own recolor,in both cases fit was pretty good,quality of print and color leaves a lot to desire.

BTW-this kit in original form was printed by Kranich twice in two different scales before it appeared in Maly in 1965,it was reprinted number of times in different liveries and some changes/corrections in Russia (many times and I still have one of those kits with plastic prop and clear plastic canopy),Czechoslovakia,Hungary and I think Bulgaria because it just looked like funny way of Russian spelling on the cover.

Here is my recolor (of course Finnish).One of my firs ones done on PS2.Few more pix of it on Koradus forum WWW.KONRADUS.COM - 50 lat Małego Modelarza
