1/40 Yunyj Tyechinik Yakovlev Yak-18 - Light Acrobatic Aircraft
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair+
Classic Cold War kit in large 1/40 scale. This is a 'Yunyj Tyechinik' ('Young Mechanic') release and not the earlier MZMPI. This company succeeded MZMPI (which was the first kit manufacturer in the USSR) and continued till a new name was introduced in the mid 1970s. Good Soviet kit molded in bright green, black, white and clear. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Yak-18s have been observed in service with the North Korean air force as recently as August 2018.
