It seems wonderfull!!! very impresive!

well the eduard one wasn't so bad....
after the yak-1 fo modelvits and the yak-3 of Zvezda, time will perhaps come for the more needed model at 1/48, which is the Yak-9 or even the Yak-7...

Well, next time I visit Russia there will definitely be one (or more) of these in my suitcase on the way back...

Hi Xan,
looks excellent and impressive, I'll buy it for sure.
I wonder if they will scale down their Lavochkins, replacing the obsolete mold bought from Italeri.
Regards
Massimo

That looks very nice, thank you for posting, Xan!  I'd like to see that in 1/32nd scale, where VVS aircraft are so poorly represented.

Regards,

Jason

From a post by "Berkut" on the ARC forum:
http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/FirstLook/Zvezda/Pre_Jak-3/Pre_Zvezda_Jak-3.html

Very impressive; one thing I noticed which surprised me a bit is how much some of the main parts resemble those in the Zvezda 1/72 Yak-3. Before anyone makes the obvious joke, I mean the way the parts are designed, not how the parts from both kits look so much like a Yak-3... ;)

(I'm also a bit disappointed by the one-piece prop/spinner, and the way the radiator air outlets on the underside of the wing are molded as part of the wing and not as separate parts. This is exactly like the 1/72 kit, and even in 1/72 it was disappointing. But it's a small complaint, and not that hard to change.)

Too bad the 1/72 kit doesn't have all that beautiful engine section detail!

Isn't that the truth, John!  It'd be great to have a kit in 1/72nd scale that shows the motor cannon.
