Looking good, Xan!  I noticed it had the greenish AMT-12 and too-light AMT-11 originally.  Now it looks more realistic.  It's hard sometimes to get up the courage to repaint an already-finished model; I recently did the same thing with a 1/72nd scale La-5FN which I had originally painted in the brown/green scheme.  I've since repainted it in the rare (for an La-5FN) black/green scheme and just need to finish re-decalling it.  Impressive collection of Yak-9's, by the way.

Regards,

Jason

It's nice to see someone say something nice about the LTD Yak-9T
all too often people only want to say bad things about it

Hi Xan,
nice model, as always. This collection allows precise comparisons between the kits.
This new one has surprised me, I didn't know it. What is the firm?

Great job on repainting that Yak-9T, Xan!  Nice lineup of Yak's.  I hope to have something like that in 1/72nd scale for my Lavochkins (I've got a LaGG-3, La-5, La-5F, and a repainted La-5FN which really only need to be decalled and weathered).

Regards,

Jason

Those pics will be considered like the final pics of the project. I have some details do end but the next exposition will be in september, so ...




The de la Poype plane (LTD model)



The Iribarne's one  (fuselage Gremlins, ICM wings):




The  Pouyade's yak (ICM) ant the Gaz truck (UM)



and the last one, the de Saint Phalle plane (Missing link)



so, so....

Xan,

This is a great diorama and I like the Yak-9 with the open engine.
That's for me the winner.
That's one that improves your modeling skills.

HI Xan

great line up, neat to see the UM fuel truck as well. 

Really like the detail of the walkway strip on the wing.

Ah, this beast, by 'Kooperativ Zvezda' in the Ukraine, I wonder if this is a forerunner of the Zvezda of today?  I have one in pink plastic....it's crude but I think there is a yak luking in there somewhere!

I think this is the one refered to in this article
http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/yak179/yaks-matvienko/yaks-matvienko.htm

Quote
Once upon a time there also lived a Yak-9 of an unnamed manufacturer from Donetsk(Ukraine), but this one is impossible to find and really unwanted due to its awful quality.

although it says 'Kooperativ Zvezda' clearly on the box, and I think the address is Donetsk [kit not to hand]

I'm with Dark Green man on the LTD kit, bit crude but great surface detailing...I have 4 stashed away...

Cheers
T
