With these two pictures I start the construction of this project. The Yak-11 will be built in the colours of the Egyptian Air Force of the 60s.

Some further steps; that´s a really nice kit so far!

According to the kit, the components of the tailplane/rudder should be glued butt to butt. Since I wanted to saw out the elevator rudder anyway for a little more "life", I immediately made a small pin using a brass tube. You can see the result here in the new pictures. Now the filling and sanding can start!

Happy New Year by the way!

A few steps further. Still all surfaces are un-sanded and raw, but I managed to get the engine in place, including the front-gill made of one etched part.

The pulpit parts are filled in at the very end - Now a few wear and tear is applied to the model.

Looking good, how did you reduce the chipping? Spraying over locally?

Roland Sachsenhofer
Exactly! I have partially covered with thinned paint

The Yak-11 is now completed. A little unimpressive, perhaps, compared to the Mirage IV, but I like such careful, focused projects in between.
The story of the prototype, on the other hand, is spectacular enough; this Yak-11 was used by an Egyptian pilot to escape to Egypt in the mid-60s.

Great result and nice story! He went to Israel though. And it was a big risk I suppose.

Nathan Dempsey
Yes a great result for sure Roland. Love the faded color.

Thank you Maciej and Nathan for your comments and the correction! Indeed, my excuse, it was Israel of course- and he had to be a brave man for this!

Beautiful color! And a very quick (and not at all dirty) build. Sehr schön!

Another great looking model, Roland! Any idea what the 'can' above the front windscreen is?
24 January 2021, 13:14
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you Gordon, I really appreciate your words! The structure on the windscreen is the casing of a camera. The Yak-11 was also used for weapons training.
