    Hi everyone,

    on a French server called Fanakit, I was scrolling down thru the 1/72 acft galleries untill I found this:

    YAK 11 "CZECH MATE", un autre Reno Racer

    with two pics of the model. I don't speak French, but "un autre" probably means "which flew", or something like this.

    Does anyone has any info on that particular plane? Any sources greately welcomed!!!

    Cheers,
    Pisis

    PS: Worth to visit this Fanakit page. Adress is: http://www.ksurf.net/~fanakit/index.htm

    "Un autre" means "another".

    I found these stats on it but nothing else...talk about modified! :lol:

    Yeah just type in Yak-11 Czech Mate and it comes up with lots of sites 8) That was the first one I found with info about the plane though, most of them were to do with the Reno air races and gave little or no info about the actual plane.
