  1. Thanks, Foxbot - will there be a Part II in 1/72, or only 1/48 because the decals are 50% bigger? I just received Part I from Hobby.dn.ua, and it looks great! I'd like to use some of the options from your decals on the 1/72 Yak-9D promised by Zvezda, but let's see if that kit ever reaches the west. I've still got 2 or 3 unbuilt Dakoplast ones... It will be interesting to see a comparison between the Modelsvit and Zvezda kits. I'm even tempted by the ICM 1/32 Yak-9, just because it's a Yak-9! John
  2. Thank you, Mike - much appreciated, and bookmarked for future reference! John
  3. Also under consideration by Kotare, apparently: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/a-bit-of-a-surprise-from-tuesday-s-ipms-meeting-he-t531675.html John
  4. Now available from CP's online catalog, at 18 Euros each: https://clearpropmodels.com/catalog John
  5. Yes, I know, but it's all I could find. My guess (which is how Internet Dogma is created, right or wrong) is that the RO-82 rails were painted AIIg Blue or its metal equivalent either at the same time as the undersides or separately to match them. I have a few saved photos, but none which look conclusively like anything definite. LMK if you want me to post some. John
  6. This might help: http://vvs.hobbyvista.com/Markings/bombs/vvsord.php John
  7. Sounds like a great idea! I'm going out on a limb here, but this kit is probably among those which used the rented CMR masters to create the molds. I mention this because I have the AZ Mk.VIII, which is a beautiful kit, close to Eduard for quality of detail, except for its "limited-run-ness"; thus, it requires more parts preparation than the Eduard kit. If I'm right, the Mk.IX Club Line is a screaming bargain at 8.50 Euros. John
  8. Thanks, but I'm just the messenger - it's Jennings Heilig who deserves the real credit. John
  9. Wait - what?! "SCALE 1/35"??? Intended for AFV dioramas, or just someone thinking too much about "targets"? Regardless, the video is pretty cool, although the music is kind of drowsy. Now that I've watched the whole thing, I find myself yearning to own one - some kind of subliminal messaging hidden in that music, perhaps? Or am I just a sucker for anything with "Yak-9" written on it? John
  10. I've been telling him that about the 1/72 Brengun Yak-1 and Yak-1B and the Arma Yak-1B kits for ages! Right, @kotey? John
  11. I wonder if the Royal Canadian Navy anti-submarine version will be kitted, or whether it'll be left to Master-X to do a resin conversion set. John
  12. This reminds me of the (in)famous Royal Canadian Navy Siebel Si-204 anti-submarine patrol aircraft! John
  13. That looks excellent, @Bedders! I hope mine looks half as good, if I ever get around to it! John
  14. Here, once again, is Jennings Heilig's guide to Sabre wings; I hope it's helpful: Feel free to save it for future reference. John
