My first completed project for 2015 is Eduard’s 1/48 Yak-3.
The markings are for Yellow 15 flown by Semion Rogow, 1st Guard’s Division in 1945.
It’s one of the early Profi Pack editions dating back to the late nineties, & I picked this kit up second-hand a couple of years back. It has the obligatory photo-etch fret as well as resin wheels and the canopy mask.
For a kit that’s pushing eighteen years (yes is it really that long ago!) the decals were in pretty good shape, and I had no problems with them at all.
I used Agama paints, for the underside their Pale Blue R2M, which is the equivalent of AMT-17:
Topside colours were Blue Grey R7M, (AMT-11), and Light Grey R3M.
I did the usual pre-shading/post shading/salt weathering & pin washes. Detailed photos of the build can be found in the Work in Progress – Aircraft section under 1/48 Eduard Yak-3.
Glad to answer any question or comments you might have, but in the meantime thanks for looking.
