And even more Russian fighters: ICM Yak-7V

I thought this one was sort of cool because it’s a two seat trainer. The kit is about what I’d expect from an older ICM kit… very short run in nature. Still, the fit overall isn’t bad, it’s just that every seam needs some work to smooth it out.

It’s painted with Akan paints, from Russia. This is the first time I’ve used them. They’re acrylic paints that spray pretty well right out of the bottle, though I found out they don’t adhere well to bare plastic. We’ll see how they do with a primer coat on an La-5 I’m building.
