drawings?

Is there a concensus about which are the best drawings of the Yak and LaGG/La series of fighters?

Thanks

Re: drawings?

John,
I don't know about anyone else, but the best drawings of the Yak fighters(that I have seen) are in the AJ Press Aircraft Monographs #13 Yak-1/3 & #14 Yak-7/9
#46 is the Polish language version of #13
#47 is the Polish language version of #14
the art is done by Jacek Jackeiwicz.

Hi John,

Soviet Air Force Fighter Colours 1941-1945 (Erik Pilawskii) contains many detailed line drawings and profiles of all the major Yak fighter variants.

Regards

Andy Fletcher

Hi John,

There is a book out on Yak fighters (1996 or so) (covering mainly Yak 1/Yak7) by Sergei Kuznetsov. In Russian but the mst detailed analysis of this aircraft in any book I have seen.

Erik's is good for camouflage as well. Sergei's is better for drawings/details and the construction numbers/types etc.

Should find it on the web. - found this

http://vvs.hobbyvista.com/Markings/D...rs_part07.html

Apparently, AeroMaster has been perusing the various Yak fighter books recently published, and in this case they have stumbled upon an absolute winner. These decal sets were all taken from the pages of the very outstanding Yak-1 book by Russian author S. Kuznetsov, "Perviy Yak" ("The First Yak") [Lyubimaya Kniga Press, 1995]. This outstanding work may be regarded as the superlative current reference on the Yak-1 fighter, and with Kuznetsov's tireless research, very little here is left to chance.

regards

Mark

Re: drawings?

sadly, I do not have "pervyi Yak" so I cannot comment on the quality of the drawings. (Kuznetzov)
it is on my list of books to get.

Chris Banyai-Riepl's drawings of the Yak-9 (side views) do not look right to me.
(his line drawings are in the previously mentioned "Soviet Airforce Fighter Colours 1941-1945")
his artwork for the Yak-7-37 is totally wrong as it depicts the cockpit in the standard location, not moved back 400 MM as on the Yak-9T.K.DD and M.
this aft-positioned cockpit was neccesitated by the MPSH 37 MM cannon.

those websites you mention are only re-using the drawings from Modelist-Konstructor (Russian model builder's magazine)
http://mkmagazine.almanacwhf.ru is part of the URL (full one eludes my memory at the moment)
you may want to check out Alexei Matvienko's work here:
http://www.sovietwarplanes.com/mig3/...-matvienko.htm
(translated by Alex Ruchkovsky)
he has more sources than I do and will tell you what parts of which drawings are correct and what is not.

P.F.
p.s. personally I would like to see a sample of the drawings from Pervyi Yak (the first Yak)
good drawings for the Yak-1 and Yak-1b are hard to find.

It's here, I owe the book, the drawings are the same:
http://www.airwar.ru/other/draw/yak1.html
These are the drawings from "Piervyj Jak" by Kuzniecov.
We may consider the legality of pleacing them on the web site but is wide known Russian site so maybe thay have a permition. Don't blame me - I've just only shown the link...
