    Kit: Eduard Presents "Normandie-Niemen"
    Accessories: maybe some extra detail, we will see.

    I need a pick me up after the He-115 sadness :( so I'll try and do a Yak-3 (this time finish and not have it crash onto my floor :(

    Kit looks straight forward and decals look pretty good in this issue (it is one of Eduard's earlier offerings in the black and red box)

    I've mis-placed the instructions but will pick a color scheme when I find them :D

    This is an excellent chance to do a French fighter squadron in the Soviet Union :) They fought together with the Soviets :)

    Good stuff Igor and I hope you get to finish this one. You might find a copy of the instructions on the Eduard web site.

    Jan... looking at the profile I would say it wasn't Yak-3 but Yak-9.

    In meantime...

    Yak-3 had one piece curved windscreen, while Yak-9 did not.

    I think it is a mistake made by the artist because I have never read or heard of the kind of cockpit conopy. The difference between the Yak-9 and Yak-9T was the location of the cockpit. Because of the length of the NS-37 gun it was moved 40cm back for the T variant. The rear part of it was modified with the U type . Please, have a look at these pictures below.
