    Being looking around the net I have found a couple of MicroMir (МикроМир) 1/48 kits of the soviet UT-1 ( Яковлев УТ-1 ) training/aerobatic plane. All kits are of the same set of sprues basically. Also there is a PE set included. The differences are just decal markings and the PE sets ( depending on the indicator panels ). The kit no.48-004 inclides additionall parts for floats. The model can seem to be quite easy to assemble ( not too many pieces ) but we can't require more because the origin kite was just the same. However the appearance of the trainer may draw modeller's eye.

    Very nice Wojtek. After looking through the other thread I was wondering about a "captured" version of this aircraft. Bookmarked for future consideration.

    A very good idea Geo. I thought about the one of white with red eges of wings and the tail. Also she is great subject for making from scratch.

    A build here, unfortunately in French. It'll take a while for me to translate.

    I think the PE set is for the float plane ( struts ) and bomb racks for the "White 10". Just being too thin to mould them of plastic
