Homebee posted a topic in The RumourmongerValom is to release a 1/72nd Yakovlev Yak-9 (early series) conversion set for its Yak-7 kit - ref. DSV04 Source: https://www.72news.eu/2019/01/valom-yak-9-early-series.html V.P.
I had mentioned in the Chat for "From Russia With Love GB" that on first glance I misread the rules. What I thought was that kit had to me made in Russia, no Hasegawa MiG-21's, for instance, but good old, some times crude, RUSSIAN made kits, those where want we wanted. A couple of days later I reread the post and figured out that I had made a big whoops. (my mistake.) However, I got a little stubborn about it and decided to do it both my way and the way the rules were actually written. So I combed through my stash and found a surprising amount of models that actually fit both criteria. (some of them VERY nice and not crude in any way) I picked the "Hobby" Yak-7 1/72 scale kit. According to Scale Mates "Hobby" is the name of the manufacturer, kitting the kits sometime in the 80's. About a decade later the kit was released again by another company and somehow both kits had ended up in my stash. One is molded in thick green plastic, the other in thick gray plastic and both have REALLY bad canopies but both molds have the all important mark. So when the starting gun goes off, I will begin building a real RUSSIAN Russian! Greg in OK
Hello, here's my attempt on Valom's 1/72 Yakolev Yak-7 (Late Production) in markings of 728. IAP, 1943/1944. Decals from the box. The kit includes photo-etched details for the cockpit such as belts and instrument panel and resin cockpit sidewalls and wheels (which I did not use because of serious fit issues). Although similar in the sprue layout, this kit is not identical with the Dakoplast and ICM moldings. It's of short-run nature and needs some TLC to build. Painted with acylics from the Gunze/Sangyo range. All pictures by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes. Thanks for lookin' ... best wishes from Vienna! Roman
