Word has it elsewhere on this forum that Modelsvit will produce a series of Yak-9's in 1/72 scale, just like they're doing in 1/48. Anyone have any idea regarding timing? Maybe they could slot in a few 1/72 ones (Yak-9D, Yak-9T for starters) among the thumb-scale releases for a change of pace? Just a suggestion - they can thank me later...

Nice! Even though they're not my preferred scale, I've already bought the earlier Modelsvit Yak-9 releases (or maybe it was two of the -9DD) just because, well, they're Yak-9s, after all, and anyone who releases new kits of them even in 1/48 deserves my (and everyone's!) support. I'll be buying this one, too, even though one of the -9DDs was intended to become a Yak-9D using the Vector resin fuselage. Now, if only someone would follow Modelsvit's lead and do the whole series of VK-105-powered Yak-9s in 1/72 scale!

 

See here for a good reference to the camouflage scheme on Mikhail Grib's White 22:

I have to admit a 1/48th scale Yak-9 (it would have to be an early version) would look good next to my Zvezda Il-2 (whenever I get around to this), but I too would love to see someone do the entire Yak-9 range in 1/72nd scale, the gentleman's scale.

"Spend" indeed - now listed as a future release at Modelimex, for about 35 Euros. Maybe the price will drop after it arrives in stock. Regardless, it is a Yak-9D with a stunning amount of detail - I'm helpless - "Shut up and take my money"... :drunk:

I'll be the same when they start moulding these in 1/72nd scale.

I hope you're right! Meanwhile, I'm hoping my purchase of at least one of the 1/48 ones will help to bankroll that 1/72 Yak-9 righteousness!

Looks good; mine's on order, so I'm hoping for a shipping notification soon. I contacted Modelsvit regarding the possibility of doing a Yak-9 series in 1/72, but so far, no reply.

Looks fantastic and it's time the Yak series is retooled!

Going to order direct from Modlesvit. Haven't got their P-51H yet. What's cool is shipping is only $17 for two kits to California.:elephant:
