 Progress so far on the Yak-1
 
 It will be made up as a Yak -1B .

 Stringers on rear fuselage done using doped and stretched cotton thread . Applied using an array of pins and then doped.

 Several coats of thin primer applied with a light sand with 1200 wet/dry .

 Tail plane an aileron ribbing done using the "comb"method and cut from the plan. There were some mishaps but easily fixed.  Yet to be cleaned up and primer added

 Decals arriving next couple of weeks. I'm thinking of adding an undercarriage to this one.

 Cheers

 Gordon

Another good looking model. The two tone sets it off.

  Decals have arrived . Work slowly proceeding.

  May finish it with black/green upper blue lower with red nose.
  But I keep coming back to white upper blue lower and Red 44 - Normandie regiment.

  Lots of time to decide.

  Completed .

  Exhausts are lengths of Plastic covered wired garden ties. Exhaust shroud is cut from take away coffee cup cap. The forward and rear exhaust stubs have the wire extended to for a pin.
  The remainder were cut flush with shroud.

  Basically air frame painted Green/black and white applied over top and cut back with 1200 wet/dry. If you try this you can get carried away.

  Cheers

Very innovative, Gordon! I don't think I've seen another model looking "battle worn" If I painted I'd like to try this.

Slowing down production due to numbness in fingers, however, I have Gary Deans coming over this evening, he's a strombecker fan....I've cut out a U2 and an Avro Arrow for him to try....don't have much wood left now, but about 11 more carvings to complete....perhaps teaching will be in my future, Gary lives about 30 - 40 minutes away from me.
