There are few parts and the impression that I saw it was a simple injection plastic model kit. The part number is not assigned to the runner and it seems to assemble compared with the manual. It will also struggle to fit parts.
The cockpit color is C522 clear yellow by the manual, but C522 was the land color of the Imperial Japanese Army tank color. Maybe the color C522 fits the cockpit. German gray is OK, I suppose. I painted the various parts in the same color, so I tried to paint them first. Since parts will be shaped, there will be parts to paint again.
I got lost in the painting process, and in this case, I decided to paint after the landing gear was completely bonded. I have to retouch the color that first blew points. I personally like to assemble first and paint later as much as possible.
I think that the Eduard color specification on the underside of the aircraft, Mr. color 323 light blue, is different. It feels so unnatural that it is too bright. I used No. 74 Air Superiority-Blue.
Yak-3 has been completed. Yak is the meaning of A.S. Yakovlev Design Bureau. So far, it was superior to Luftwaffe, the Soviet Air Force operating this Yak-3 in 1943, it became possible to fight more than equal.
It is a quotation from the instruction manual of Eduard. Although this is a relatively well known and often illustrated aircraft, details of it and its pilot, Lt. S. I. Rogovoi, are more obscure. According to memoirs, this Yak-3 was dedicated to him for his role in the saving of a vessel in the Amursk Flotilla. Semyon I. Rogovoi served with the 64th GIAP / 4th GIAD from October 1944 to May 1945 as a flight leader, and by the end of the war, he gained a minimum of five confirmed kills.
I forgot to attach the rearview mirror in the canopy. This is absolutely impossible to correct. I also filled in the gap between the canopy and the fuselage with the putty, so I didn’t want to open up and add more parts. Unfortunately, I don’t correct it this time.
I thought it was a 1/72 scale kit because of this size. It is a small but good-performing, mass-produced fighter that overwhelms the German Air Force since WWII mid-stage. It is good to make Eduard’s Profi Pack once in a while.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
