This latest release is supposed to be more detailed than the previous Modelsvit Yak-9 series kits (which were already very good), although I haven't tried to compare the ones I've got with any sprue photos on the Internet, yet. The new kit (catalog No.4809) is somewhat more expensive than previous Modelsvit Yak-9s, so I hope it's worth it. I'm probably going to pre-order one from Modelimex - even if it's not 1/72, it's still a Yak-9!   Wink

I wasn't aware of the future release of the series of Yak-7s shown in the Hyperscale thread, so thank you for that! Will I buy them? Hmmm - I don't know. If they were 1/72, I'd do it in a heartbeat, but 1/48... Beautiful they may be, but I know they'd never get built!  Roll Eyes

Interesting model, looks very well made. A vacuform canopy would help to make a slided back hood.

There is a thread over at HS that contains some shots of a test build of the upcoming Yak-9D.  Can't hardly wait.  Cool

Thank you all for the comments and sorry for the delay in my reply.
I used Akan acrylics paints but slightly brightened.

Stef (#6) I think I have already met you on French forums there is longtime ago  Smiley

I agree on silver and blue.
The nose area could have some more decorations, but this is unknown. I suppose that some red star (with 5 or 6 tips) on the spinner would be likely, as on an Il-2 painted by the same painter.

great photos of difficult interpretation.
I think that the base color is silver, on which large bands of a different light color are painted as background for green spaghetti.

a silver plane with the dark blue tail (as described in previous posts) is an interesting interpretation.
Looking at the shadows, sun is almost directly above, slightly to the left and behind the photographer.
- No color demarcation line on the fuselage is visible - was silver paint on the whole plane, or only on the upper surfaces while underwings were light blue AMT-7?
- Leading edge on the horizontal stabilizer looks brighter than rest of the stabilizer upper surface. White?
- Metal wing root looks brighter than the fuselage - is it only a reflection of the sun?
- Tail wheel cover is very bright - is it only a sun reflection on the glossy dark blue surface?
- Bright rectangular looks like repair - yellowish nitroputty over fabric?
- color of the propeller spinner - no idea. Also silver, or white or red or dark blue?
- Color of the antenna mast? Its tip is dark - dark blue?
- Seems like moving part and the rear part of the cockpit canopy is missing and pilot leans against the covered armored glass behind the seat.

Anyone up for spaghetti-o-s?  Grin

Interesting how the rear fuselage and the vertical fin look solid green in the first photo, but not in the second

Going way back for this one... Cool

I would be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on Exito's interpretation of this aircraft: AMT-7 overall with AMT-12 tail and white spinner.
