Smile Fuselage mated

At this point we have two halves that are mated at the forward part of the circular center.

Another great looking soviet aircraft build Isaac. You're doing your usual fantastic build, and build thread. Will you do separate control surfaces on this kit?

Yes, and lowered flaps too.

Fuselage comparison

Here is the Yak-25 fuselage next to my almost completed Yak-19. Even though the aircraft are very similar in shape and size, the sections are not identical. However, building style of all those 3 Yak planes is identical.

here is a link to my Yak 19 build ( still in progress ).

Exclamation Vertical fin and rudder

Here are the parts. Notice that the rudder is separate ( nice feature ) and is made in two sections as the actual plane ( due to the location of the horizontal fin mid way up ).

also

for some reason the fuselage section at the rear got warped/dented/deformed. So I had it printed on a thin paper and just glued it on top using UHU glue. Notice the slight color difference, but I like this repair.

The repair came out nice and something that I should do with my builds. Usually I just trash the model and start something different instead of persevering.

I used this type of repair in other models I have built. It is simple to do. This model had two other locations later on in the build using this. In that case, because the coloring was affected by the glue, I printed new section and glued on top using UHU glue which is best for this type of repair.

Exclamation Wings

The Yak-25 used straight wings as in the Yak 19, but had an inner section with a slight forward angle ( like a P-51 Mustang ). The designer chose to split the wing at that location, so additional glue tabs are used.

parts

folded over
Yak-25 (first gen) MaksArt in 1/33-img_8957.jpg


inner wing section is glued on. A note here: The designer had the wing joining using a butt configuration where the edge wing ribs are glued. I chose not to use that method and rather join the wings first before inserting any support.
Also, the red stars and the numbers are on the lower wing both sides. Do not confuse it!

notice, that this design has no wing fillets, so mating needs to be exact.
