Hi Jason,
thank you for comment. I am glad you like it. Cheesy

Here we continue with Yak-9U.
Serial version with the engine VK-107A was produced between April 1944 and August 1945 and 3921 Yak-9U planes were produced.

Work in progress:


and it will be one of these planes:

Hi,
A little progress. Prop spinner is light but looks a bit darker than white color on the plane, but not so dark as red color on the stars. It seems to be either light blue or yellow.

The same to you, and to all the rest of our Sovietwarplanes comrades!

For what it's worth, I edited my two previous posts in this thread to correct my error regarding the weaponry of the Yak-9/-9D/-9B. I was so hung up about the wing root shell ejection chute being a provision for the cannon shells that, after reading the drawing note regarding 12.7mm shell ejection, I mistakenly referred to the engine-mounted weapon on these aircraft as the 12.7mm UBS machine gun, not the 20mm ShVAK as it really was. In other words, the chutes were for machine gun shell ejection, not cannon shells. No one corrected my error, so I am confessing it myself! In summary:

Yak-9/-9D/-9B: 20mm motor cannon with internal cartridge shell accumulation, 12.7mm cowling machine gun with external shell ejection through the wing root

Yak-9T: 37mm motor cannon with internal cartridge shell accumulation, 12.7mm cowling machine gun also with internal cartridge shell accumulation

Yak-9K: 45mm motor cannon with internal cartridge shell accumulation, 12.7mm cowling machine gun with internal cartridge shell accumulation

Now I'll just go and write that out 500 times as my punishment...

Again, happy New Year to all, and best wishes for 2018! Maybe this thread and its excellent artwork will bring us good luck, and a brand-new, accurate, and well-detailed 1/72 Yak-9D/-9T kit will finally appear on the shelves of our favourite hobby shops!  Wink

Yes, John, I agree! Maybe Airfix will finally bring us (some day) a new-mould Yak-9D to replace their tired, old, inaccurate kit. And after that they can bring us a new-mould Pe-2, and a new-mould Il-2. Well, we can hope anyway. You'll be glad to know that I've become quite interested in Yak fighters in 1/72nd scale, as part of the research for my WWII Soviet fighters book. 66misos/Michal is doing these beautiful profiles for my book. Maybe the text will all be rubbish, but at least the book will have nice, accurate profiles!

Happy New Year!

Hi Misos, hi all,
excellent drawings as usual.
Maybe the spinner of 29 could put more into evidence a glossy finish.
A new Yak-9 from Airfix would be nice. I fear that they have lots of British planes still to make, though.

Hi Misos,
I would make a sharp dark area below its axis to represent the difference in the reflection of ground and sky, as from the photo.

Hi Massimo,
the photo is fuzzy and missing some grey halftones. For me it does not look like polished surface, similiar to the high glossy surface of red prototypes. So I leave it as it is - let's say semigloss surface.
