This Russian Maquette kit was issued in 2001. Duke Douglas built this model, and reported the following. The kit comes in a flimsy box. It is moulded in white plastic that had a lot of flash. The instruction sheet is only a single page, and a small, very thick and glossy decal sheet is included. It took a lot of putty and sanding to take care of the seams. The nose cone was a seperate piece that did not match the fuselage well, as the main body was not as round. The canopy fitted very poorly and the smaller windows had to be replaced using Testors clear parts cement/window maker. Duke finished it with Polly S paint as white 05, using the the crosses from the kit decals, and parts box decals for the other markings.
