Modelsvit Yak-9TD in 1:48


Recommended Posts

Here some pictures of my latest build: Modelsvit Yak-9TD in 1:48. Built it OOB without any aftermarked parts. For painting I used Hataka Colors from their Orange Line.

Hi Mathy,

 

your Yak came out really excellent, well done 👍 May I ask how you've weathered the upper surfaces? And what do you think about the kit? Anything to watch out during the build?

 

Thanks!

 

Cheers

Markus

That's a winner Mathy!   Typically beautiful work from a master modeler!!  I wonder how this kit compares to the ICM 1/48 Yak 9T?  I have that one waiting in the stash.

Thanks for your latest posting!  🍺

Thanks Markus,

Weathering was done with black and brown oilcolors with different brushes and airbrush. Further I used the AK weathering pencils.

The quality of the kit is ok, but reach not the high standard of the amaizing Mirage III/2000 by Modelsvit in 1:72. The Bf 109 series looks also better to me. Fit is also ok, but it is not possible to build the Yak without any filler.

Yak 9 canopies always look vertically squashed in model form, but they were such in real life. Their brothers 1, 3 and 7 seemed to have more expansive greenhouses, all arriving from the beautiful I - 26 prototype, such as they were. 

Nice to see modern Yak renditions that do not have overscaled spinners, unlike those of ten years ago. 

 

Nicely done. She's a beauty.

The model wears your signature! Your models seem to like very much wet ground!🤣Cheers.
