Fascinating time piece with a hsitory one could not believe these days.†

Everybody knows him as "Mr. ALFA", though his name is Gennady

Vasiliev. In the early 80's he made the first Russian 1/72 scale kit. It was the time when ex-FROG kits became widely available on Soviet†market, and scale modelling was getting more and more popular. The prob-
lem however was that most of the kits depicted such exotic foreign subjects
as Hurricane and Lightning and were interesting only for guys who really
believed that there could be some airplanes outside Russia. Only two red stars
(SB-2 and La-7) were available. How Gennady made his first mould is a story by
itself. Every cottage industry manufacturer, who made his first kit on a†kitchen table, knows the problem ? total lack of equipment and experience, though overweighted by great amount of enthusiasm. The ?rst kit was in fact†very basic set of injection moulded parts which could be built (with a lot of†patience and care) into 1/72 scale model of MiG-3. MiG-3 was soon followed†up by Su-2 and Yak-4 ? now really a collector's items! However in what-then-was Soviet Union private business was not allowed to be, and MVD guys†kept their watchfull eye on it. Gennady has been taken to court and though
acquited. all his moulds were destroyed. 'That's life' - he told, and when
the word 'businessman' became legal he got started again. This time with
l/72 scale model of LaGG-3, and then with this gem ? Yak-6. I've seen in
some foreign magazines this kit reviewed under wrong names (Santa, Ajax),
in spite of the fact that 'ALFA' is clearly mentioned on the box in Latin. The
decal provided in this kit is in fact one from LaGG-3 (nobody knows why).
Colour painting guide on instruction sheet is a little wrong. In all other
respections the kit is pretty good.

And this piece of modelling hostory is what we now offer you!†
