  1. Recently I had a bit of a splurge on 1/32 kits; one of them being the Special Hobby Yak-3, partly because I like the aircraft and partly because Hannants are currently knocking out the 'low-tech' version of the kit for £24. The earlier 'Normandy-Nieman' boxing included some resin parts, this one doesn't: Here are the instructions, in colour: One of the transfer sheets: ... and the second: ... and the sprues: ... and the clear sprue
  2. I love this model! I had such a great time with this kit, as it provides a lot of options for interesting markings, as well as ability to build it with a fully exposed engine. The kit is fairly well detailed (alas the inner gear door actuator arms are missing) and is simple to build. Clear bits are a bit foggy, but that actually worked to my advantage, since I wanted to build a pretty weathered airplane. The model is painted with Gunze and Tamiya paints and weathered with oil dot filters. I used Tamiya weathering master makeup for the wheel dirt. The only extra bit was some generic PE harnesse
  3. A brand new 1/48th Yakovlev Yak-3 is to be released by Zvezda. Sources and pics: http://www.facebook....26613179&type=3 http://scalemodels.r...1-48-jak-3.html V.P.
  4. The second completion of the week, and not much bigger than the I-16, and keeping with the Soviet theme, is the Hasegawa 1/72 Yak-3. Note that the antenna wire goes through the cockpit canopy to the radio box underneath. This model and the I-16 were brush painted using AK Interactive acrylics from their WWII Soviet colour set.
  5. Special Hobby working on a new tool Yak-3. It will be their next 1/32 kit after the Tempest.
  6. Hello and thanks for your interest. Here's my 1/72 Zvezda Yak-3, built with the addition of Eduard photo etch, Rob Taurus vacu canopy and Begemot decals. Represents a machine of 303rd Fighter Division, 3rd Belorussian Front, East Prussia, April 1945. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. With kind regards from Vienna, Austria Roman Schilhart
  7. Yakovlev Yak-3 "Onward to Berlin" Special Hobby 1:32 Lighter and smaller than Yak-9 but powered by the same engine, the Yak-3 was a forgiving, easy-to-handle aircraft loved by both novice and experienced pilots and ground crew as well. It was robust, easy to maintain, and a highly successful dog-fighter. It was used mostly as a tactical fighter, flying low over battlefields and engaging in dogfights below 4 km (13,000 ft). The new aircraft began to reach front line units during summer 1944. Yak-3 service tests were conducted by 91st IAP of the 2nd Air Army, commanded by Lt
  8. My starters for this Group Build will be a pair of Hasegawa Yak-3's in 1/72. I imagine this kit has been comprehensively superceded by the newer Zvezda Yak-3 but I don't have the Zvezda kit and I do have two of these in the stash; we must all work with what we've got: It's quite basic, typical of 90's Hasegawa kits and I hope that it will fit together typically well. Here are one set of sprues: and the rest: Parts are provided for open or closed up canopies but I don't think there will be much to see inside anyway...

  10. Yakovlev Yak-3 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition The YAK-3 had a slightly stop start entry into Russian service. Its origins can be traced back to a 1941 design the I-30. Like the original Yak-1 it was to feature a 20mm cannon firing through the propeller hub and two wing mounted machine guns. The armament was improved by the addition of a pair of wing mounted cannons. The first Yak-3 had a metal wing with slats, and the second a wooden wing to simplify production. The German invasion, and a shortage of aircraft grade alloys lead to the projects cancellation. Jump then to 1943 and Yakolev look
  11. My other build for the GB is Zvezda's neat little Yak-3 in 1:72. It's a nice kit, but has some prominent sink marks on the wings. I got these puttied up and once dry, should be able to complete the remaining assembly in a few evenings. As a personal challenge, I'm going to see if I can finish this build in a week. ....aaaand go!
  12. Was surprised to see Zvezda recommend "aviation green", translated into Humbrol 226 Interior Green, for the cockpit interior of their Yak-3. I always thought, probably on the basis of the Dako Yak-9 instructions, that Soviet aircraft were a light grey inside. I note that Zvezda do recommend "light grey", translated to Humbrol 129 Gull Grey, for the undercarriage wells, legs and door interiors: the same colour is used as the lighter of the 2 uppersurface greys. So: are Zvezda wrong or am I not up-to-date with the latest research?
  13. Yakovlev Yak-3. This aircraft is not a restored original but one of the new built aircraft from the 1990's which were a co-operation between the Yakovlev Design Bureau, Strela and Flight Magic, Santa Monica, California. Its design is based as closely as possible on the wartime Yak-3, but utilises an all-metal structure. They are powered by powered by an Allison V-1710 engine as there is currently no single working Klimov engine available. Both the Klimov and the Allison V-1710 are liquid cooled piston V-12 engines with very similar dimensions and power. Pics mine.
  14. Hi, usually I do not touch "Snap Fit" kits, since I had some rather disappointing experiences (with tanks) before. Now the new Zvezda model of the Yak-3 is a totally different league. Apart from the fact that you actually can assemble the whole model without a drop of glue, it also provides sufficient detail and good measurement - and there's even aftermarket accessories available from the likes of Eduard, Rob Taurus and CMK. I confess I did use glue on some parts, like the landing gear and some small pieces, just to make sure they don't go astray. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobb

  16. Hi all, I originally meant my next WIP to be an IL-2, but changed my mind after I seen a Yak-3 online that I liked the look of and wanted to make. This will be my first kit with aftermarket parts; currently only the decals, but I'm looking into some metal exhausts (with no luck so far). I'll be building a small diorama as well, with Zvezda's Soviet Air Force Ground Crew. I'll be building Lt.Col. A.D. Yakimenko's plane. "Yakimenko entered combat against the Japanese over Khalkhin Gol in summer 1939 [and] was given credit for 3 individual and 4 shared victories. Yakimenko met the requirements
  17. These are the first models I bought and finished since I moved to Denmark- the Eastern Express/Dakoplast LaGG-3 series 66 and the Zvezda Yak-3, both 1/72. The Eastern Express kit requires quite a bit of clean-up and filler to get to fit well at the wing-to-fuselage join. I used the kit decals to model it as Yuri Shchipov's mount, but only half of them came off the sheet or worked, with the result that I only decaled one side of the plane (and even then, not fully). The multi-part canopy fit poorly and I broke one of the bits, hence the pose with the open canopy. Next is the 'snap-fit'
