MPS Now Has Kits!…………………………….well, one anyway :)

We’ve been working on new things for MPS! The new Kit Hangar will feature a small selection of new, unbuilt kits  (mostly by non-mainstream manufacturers), hard-to-find kits, and kits that have been previously reviewed on MPS—-there’s only so much room in my stash 🙂


The Kit Hangar and our new Homepage (with lots of new, cool pics) are not ready for roll out but until then, here’s our first kit: The Arma Hobby 1/72 Yak-1B Expert Set, available now from MPS for $24.00.

As covered in the Kit Review,  the model is comprised of 46 parts in grey styrene, 2 in clear, 15 in PE, and one decal sheet with markings for 6 airframes.

I just finished this kit and it was a blast to build. Check out the full build and painting article here.


The kit features crisp and abundant surface details especially with regard to the replication of cowl and panel fasteners. The detailed cockpit comes with a PE instrument panel and seat harness.
