72342 Amodel 1/72 Yak-42D
Plans for mass production of the Yak-42 severely curtailed, which contributed to a number of shortcomings, first of all, a short range. Despite the large capacity of the tanks, theoretically accommodating 18.5 tons of fuel, the aircraft with a full commercial load of 14.5 tons could take only 8.5 tons of fuel. Otherwise, the maximum take-off weight went beyond the permitted limit of 54 tons. Accordingly, the range is significantly reduced. And with full refueling, the commercial load was reduced to 3.8 tons. There is a need for modernization, especially since The Tu-134 fleet began to decline, and the unpretentiousness of the Yak-42 fell to the yard of air enterprises. In 1987, the work on the creation and certification of Yak-42Dwas completed.
