YAK-3 Yugoslav air force acro group (1950) 1/72 Zvezda

Hi to all
Finalized one more Yakovlev Yak-3, this time in colors of Yugoslav acrobatic team from 1950. Acro group consisted from 2 Yak’s, one in bright red and one in bright yellow color.

Zvezda model in 1/72, very soft plastic, need correction of upper surface, but in general nice model at the end. Added rivets and painted with Tamiya colors. Panels from different materials are toned down in different shades …to avoid monotone look and get somehow more realistic look.

As always i have problem with getting correct tones on pictures (red colors are problematic to capture for me) so in reality colors little differ from those on the pictures…but near enough
I hope you like the model
Best regards to all

  1. Definitely a bright Yak! Well done.

  2. Keeping it simple is actually not easy. Nice work on this.

  3. Another of your great results of a not shake’n’bake kit, Djordje!
    Fools the scale for sure!
    I love the looks!

  4. A great build, Djordje.
    A not so often used scheme but it suites the Yak very well.
    Btw, pictures at the end are not visible to me.

  5. Thank you all for kind words
    Regards Djordje
