Hi,
here the first of the three yak-9 I'm building.
I paint it with Akan paints
this is a yak-9D in resin made by Missing link:




I represent the plane of Jacques de Saint Phalle who died two years ago at 93 years old







I discovered those white stripes


some normandie's yak had them

Excellent work Xan! thanks for sharing.
I appreciate your words about how you decided to make the choices you did with the evidence you had to work from, this is a great help.

Beautiful Yak, Xan, excellent work indeed!  Nice, subtle weathering on the propeller blades.  I wonder if those wing stripes were some sort of aiming or landing aid (the guns were in the nose, so it's hard to see how they would help with aiming, however)?  Or maybe to direct the pilot's attention to the small landing gear indicators?  They're so small that they can't just be a decorative element, I believe.  I don't think I've seen those on Soviet Yak's (of course, now that I know about them, I may find them on many Yak photographs).

Regards,

Jason

Well made model, Xan. My doubt is if the coolers had some brown traces behind their outlet.

Great model Xan!  Smiley

You did a great job converting that hopeless brick into a scale model.  Your model is proof that AKAN AMT-11 and AMT-12 work -  there was a lot of discussion how they are too dark.

I really admire your effort to find details about the pilot.  I always look for history, stories, behind a model or a photo.

Cheers,
KL

Thank you all friends...
Learstang thefrench MS406had such stripes in red ,



 and it was to know were the plane could be raised.

Massimo I have no idea, if someone had pic of yak-9 under part I will apreciate it!

Konstantin we have the same idea of our passion, planes are nothing but pilots, men, instruments.

Hi Xan,
probably color photos of any other plane could help, taking into account that the front cooler was for oil and the rear one for glycol.

Bravo Xan!!! Exquisite model!

IMHO, your camera lens creates too much deformation ? Yak-9T already has somewhat too long nose, with your lens it looks like a shark.

Hi Xan,
very nice model of a pleasant plane. Did you make modifications to the kit? The fuel hatch, I suppose...

mister K you are right for the shark!
however the fifference btween the two aircraft is quite impressive, beeing the yak-9D more beautyful in my point of view...
Massimo , your riht too
here you have the mounting of the three models

the next one will be the de la Poypes yak-9T (the LTD one)

http://the third one, the Roland de la Poype's yak-9T



Roland de la Poyp is the last Normandie niemen adventure pilot alive...
I find quite emotiv those few pictures:
When Roland touch his yak, his lost youth and friends gone come to his mind
http://www.youtube.com/v/_do6Rzttv8k
Well here is the model; the LTD is surely the best representation of the yak-9...
not easy, but quite accurate








tr?s mauvaise surprice, la casserole est beaucoup plus ?troite le le nez de l'avion  :cry:







and that's a pic I am very happy to take (it has been quite long):







the next and last one to be updated will be the Iribarne's one.

Hi Xan,
really a beautiful collection.
What do you mean for 'update'? Will you repaint it?
