Hi Massimo,
I made rear part of the fuselage a bit lighter, picture above is already replaced.

Here I continute with the Yak-9T.
Yak-9T is modification of the serial Yak-9 with the more powerfull armament - with 37mm cannon shooting through the propeller spinner. Due to dimensions and weight of the gun the whole cockpit was moved 40cm back to the tail.


This is original:





More photos of this particular plane is at http://www.airfield.narod.ru/yak/yak-9/yak-9_color4.html

Hi Misos, the Yak-9T looks excellent.
About the lower view; I still can't see any shadow under the flap of the outlet of the oil cooler.
About the inlet of the water cooler, I would make some shadow at least inside the inlet on the left side of the drawing.

Hello. 66misos! Thank you very much for your artwork for the Yak-9 - you've already done two of my favourites, Grib and Vybornov.

One question - are you sure about the shell ejection chute in the left wing root of the Yak-9T? I've seen a series of scale drawings where this was present on the Yak-9D but absent on the Yak-9T. Perhaps the shell casings were accumulated for reuse in a compartment inside the aircraft's fuselage on the -9T? I think enough of the wing root is visible in the "handshake" photo at the bottom of your December 27 post to show that there was no ejection chute.

Cheers!
John

Hi John,
thank you for comment. Cheesy I have to admit I am not sure about it, I made it according to the different line drawings. I will check it agan, it is not problem to correct/delete it.

Jason, could you, please, help to clarify whether shell ejection chute should or should not be in the left wing root.

In the meantime, here is the bottom view on Yak-9T:

If you are interested and have not seen these, here is a link to the "series of drawings" which I referred to:
http://www.airwar.ru/other/draw/yak9-1.html

These are the ones from ”Yak-9: Ryadovye nebes” (Yak-9: Soldiers in the Sky) by Dmitriy Leipnik. If you check, you will see that the only drawings which show the chute opening are for the Yak-9 and Yak-9D, and not any other version such as the -9T. The Yak-9/Yak-9D plan view sheet has a note (note 4) on the chute location referencing the 12.7mm UBS cowling machine gun. While I know the frequent warning not to believe scale drawings, I trust these very well.

I am looking through my references, Michal, but I haven't found anything yet about the 37-mm ejection system on the Yak-9T. This is just a guess, but it would make sense for the cartridges not to be ejected as they were so large and could cause real damage to the aircraft if one hit the tail, for example. I shall continue to search my sources to see if I can't find this information out for certain. Your profiles, of course, look brilliant!

Best Regards,

Jason

Not sure if this is applicable to the Yak9-T or not it looks like it is collected in this link.

Thank you, barneybolac! It does look like the cannon cartridges (and links, probably) were collected in some kind of 'box' ('junction-box') according to the translation.

Excellent as usual, Michal! That tail looks interesting - it could almost be a replacement tail, including the metal fin, or perhaps it was repainted after repairs for battle damage, although I would think it would be darker if it were freshly-painted, but that's not what the photograph shows. There does seem to be quite a variation with the tones of the greys used in the two-grey scheme; I'm thinking especially of that famous photograph from the air of the Normandie-Niemen Yak-3s on the ground.

Best Regards,

Jason
