Hi,
here I have started work on Yak-9 family. The first one should be this Yak-9:


This is original - photos are from http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic_t_9320_start_0.html:




Usual interpretation show light blue or red proppeller spinner, cap on the tail and light blue or white board number 17.
The plane is interpreted either grey-grey or blak-green camo.
According to the camo fields on the upper photo I would say it is standard black-green camouflage.

Excellent! But I think that the starlets are red.
The third photo seems to show something light on the tail, perhaps a thin oblique white band.
Not sure about the spinner and cap. Aren't there photos of other planes of the unit?

Hi Massimo,
thank you. I decided for red spinner and cap. Here is the finished picture:


Do you know, please, text of that 6-line stencil on the front engine cowling beneath exhaust?

And there was also something written on the trapeziod panel on the rear fuselage nexz to the wing root - number 17 is painted over it here.
Thank you.
Regards,

Hi,
here is one of the first Yak-9D still in the standard black-green camouflage with local black repainting on the rear fuselage:
EDIT: Alternative with yellow marking cancelled.

Stencill are already found and added here and also on the previous Yak-9 "White 17".

Here is original:


The tip of the propeller spinner and top of the tail look like either yellow of light blue.

Hi Misos,
this is excellent. Just I am not convinced about all that yellow.
I'll ask for the text.

Hi Masimo,
thank you. That white/blue combination looks better for my eye than yellow, looks more typical for VVS from that period. I will wait and then we will see.

Here is work in progress on grey-grey Jak-9D:


It will be this plane:

Hi Misos,
here is a scan with the stenciling from Alex.



Good work on plane n.22. Just I think to see more red and less white on the original photo. I think that the emblems have to be corrected.

Hi Massimo,
thank you for comment and the scheme for stencils.
However, I do not understand what exactly you mean by "more red and less white on the original photo. I think that the emblems have to be corrected". Do you mean to make the bigger star in the Guard Emblem?

Hi Misos,
on the photo, the red banner and the red star are nearly in contact each other, but they are far on the drawing. Besides the yellow protrusions on the lower part of both marks look different.

Hi Massimo,
thank you for comment. I reworked it and repalced both profiles.

Here we continue with the view from the top on the same Yak-9D:

Hi,
According to the http://www.airfield.narod.ru/yak/yak-9/yak-9.html:

Yak-9 – had 2 fuel tanks with total capacity of 320 kg of fuel. Two fuel hatches on the upperwing for filling the tanks. One tank+hatch per one wing.

Yak-9D was modification of Yak-9 with increased flying range and so it had 4 fuel tanks (480 kg) instead of original 2 (320 kg).
According to the https://coollib.com/b/261705/read: „However, in combat units, the external fuel tanks (e.g. fuel tanks closer to the wing tips) usually were not used. Mechanics simply sealed their filler neck.“ It means that visible were always the fuel hatches of the inner tanks while the fuel hatches of the outer tanks were sometime visible, sometime sealed. Two tanks + two (or one) hatches per one wing.

Yak-9DD was modification of Yak-9D or Yak-9T. It had installed 8 main and one expendable fuel tank (total 630 kg). The panel/covers are fitted under the fuel tanks, 6 additional hatches are cut in the upperwings - total 8 (or 10?) hatches on the upperwing. Four tanks + four (or five?) hatches per one wing.
