  1. Good work, Michal.

  2. Lovely work, Michal.

    Great photo here of some of the ‘night witches’. More often they flew the old WW1 bi-planes, but 586 regiment flew Yaks (you can see one right behind these ladies). Their name came from the Germans; the women would fly over targets, switch off engines and glide while dropping bombs – all at an altitude so low that they didn’t wear parachutes. Interestingly these older Polikarpov Po2’s were slow slow (the maximum speed was lower that’s the stall rate of 109’s and 190’s) so we’re hard to shoot down.

    Anyway, great work, hope to see more of your modeling soon!

  3. Excellent Yak, solid build and painted, with just the right amount of weathering.
