I wonder if the blue represents only reflection on a gloss black surface.

engine block was probably blue.  M-34 engine displayed at TsDAK is light blue and black:




blue on the painting is the same as interior of the I-16 Type 5 preserved at Chkalov museum:

Xan, that is just an astoundingly great model! Excellent, excellent work - some of those images could pass for photos of the real aircraft! Wow...  Shocked

Brilliant, Xan!  Now you can do a GPW fighter-bomber 1-15bis in the black-green camouflage!  Okay, you probably need a rest from the I-15bis for now - so what's next?

Regards,

Very good work Xan.

The Yak-9's , what kit is the 'and the missing linf one...'?

There is a really basic kit from 'Zvezda Kooperativ' from 1990 or so, I wonder if this is a very early incarnation of the same company?  It's the kit listed in here http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/yak179/yaks-matvienko/yaks-matvienko.htm

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.

One thing, in the link above,
Quote
LTD?s Yak-9 screams with every line that is has been based on the M-K drawings, Right, all outlines are spot on, but the kit is a bit overscale

Interestingly the LTD Yak-9 matches the Modelsvit Yak-1B very well in overall outline.

cheers

the Missing LinK kit is an all-resin 1/48 scale kit of the Yak-9D.
(the canopy is vacuum-formed-not resin-just to clarify)

Hi Xan, hi all,
there is an improving kit of Gremlinmodels with a resin fuselage to replace the one of the kit of ICM. I don't know if it's still available.

Truly remarkable model, congratulations!
There is just one inaccuracy, that caught my eye immediately: the officer dressed in 1943- type uniform, that simply could not be available in 1939. But, again, this has nothing to do with the appearance of the model!
