Beautiful job. I build the same kit recently (it's posted on Britmodeller) and I wish I'd had your ability to make cockpit decals! Like you I thought it was a lovely kit but I did't have any great problems with the fin join, just a little awkward filling below the intake.

Many thanks for you kind words Dave! I did see your build as well before I started working on this one (not many Yak-42 builds out there after all). You did an excellent job as well! If you're interested, you can find my build report (in Dutch though) here:
