    the plane that comes in the kit is this was looking online profiles and anything that I've taken I remember of the journal air magazine, I do not remember the number

    The unit originated in mid-1943 during World War II. Initially the groupe comprised a group of French fighter pilots sent to aid Soviet forces on the Eastern Front at the suggestion of Charles de Gaulle, (that was written reality can be very different), leader of the Free French Forces, who felt it important that French servicemen serve on all fronts in the war.

    Groupe de Chasse 3 (GC 3) (3rd Fighter Group) in the Free French Air Force, first commanded by Jean Tulasne, fought in three campaigns on behalf of the Soviet Union between 22 March 1943, and 9 May 1945, during which time it destroyed 273 enemy aircraft and received numerous orders, citations and decorations from both France and the Soviet Union, including the French Légion d’Honneur and the Soviet Order of the Red Banner. Joseph Stalin awarded the unit the name Niemen for its participation in the Battle of the Niemen River (1944).

    buy this plane thinking that the Spanish pilots who flew in the VVS took this plane but more that I investigate less clear see that some Spanish was to control this device, so I'll do cash, according to air magazine pilot with 23 was a pilot named Mertzisen but can not find more information from the pilot alone I found this review

    "Yak-1B "White 23", pilot u/k, 303 IAD, Normandie-Niemen Regiment. The side view of the camouflage application here is correct, and this is a common 1942-43 Saratov scheme in AMT-6/-4/-7."

    I can not read the link you put me and the translator that I have around here it is to be at home for the English vocabulary that escapes me, nothing more.
    I might be wrong but I think zts plolastik fits this plane but the original mold is a-model, has all the earmarks by the plastic is hard as AMODEL and detail is as you see null

    The ZTS Plastyk kit isn't the A-model one. It is said the kit is reboxed Plasticart ( former DDR ) manufacturer. However I haven't seen the origin Plasticart kit of the Yak-1 and can't confirm that.

    Here the A-model sprues...
