That looks very nice, John! Just yesterday I received the Brengun Yak-1B - it looks quite nice also, although I have not started even test-fitting the parts. I notice both of these Yak-1Bs have the late-style tail wheels with the side doors (as on the Yak-3 and the Yak-9) instead of the small door attached to the front of the strut. By the way, I believe the use of the lower-case 'b' in these kits is a mis-transliteration from the Cyrillic. In Cyrillic what looks like a lower-case 'b' is actually the English/Latin 'B'. The 'B' in Cyrillic represents the 'V' sound (I realise you probably already know this, but this is for those who don't know some of the intricacies of Russian Cyrillic).

Apparently production has started; shipping estimated to begin next week.

Interesting article about the development and test-build of the Yak-1B kit:
