Yak-1b (Series 127) skins

Recommended Posts

Someone who's doing Durand's "white 11" sharkmouth? I always found it to be one of the most visually striking sharkmouth in Soviet service.

(Don't pay attention to the label of Yak-1M)

Indeed, Roland de La Poype had one too.

In fact, the picture above is one of de La Poype's Yak-1b (painted by Marcellin in May 1943, the same than the Flying Tigers')

 

Albert Durand's shark mouth is a bit different :

I'm doing one based on Red 47.  There is also a Red 24 with similar marking.  I have an image but no picture which is supposed to be around.  If anyone has a picture I would love to see it.

I think this may be the two with Red 24 in the background but can't be sure:

EDIT: lol, just saw the post above.  Oh well...they will be different.

To avoid any conflicts, I'm currently working on "Za Nikolaya" , Merkulov's Yak-7B as a Yak-1B.

The Blue will change, Number (22) and lettering to add and the fus stars need moving backwards.

Blimey! I thought I'd been busy...

 

I think I'm going to stick with virtual squadron skins until the rush settles down. I've already seen a couple posted here which were on my shortlist, including those sweet 3rd IAK machines.

 

Good job all :salute:

Guys, its is rather strange to see so many shades of green and black.

 

1941-1943 - for mixed construction - AMT-4 green + AMT-6 black, and AMT-7 Blue for undersurfaces. If aircrafts was all-metal, used special colors, with slightly different color. But it is impossible to have two shades of green on one aircraft. Also, note, there is no braun color in VVS.

 

1943-1945 - for mixed construction AMT-11 + AMT12 + AMT-7 (for fighters) or AMT-1+AMT-7+AMT-11 + AMT-7 (for assaults and bombers), or for metal aircrafts (such as Pe-2, for example) - their analogs. Again, no any braun or two different shades of green.

There was no "sand" camouflage, and AMT-1 sand-broun was used only on assaults/bombers as one of 3 uppersurface colors. It was NOT used on fighters.

Again this bullsh#t colors from crappy Eduard. Seems, their fantasy goes far beyound Luftwaffe colors :)

Developer's palette was already corrected a little bit (Luftwaffe part - RLM78, RLM76 and RLM02 is example), so I think green on Pe-2 and green on Yak-1 must be considered as two a little bit different shades. So, light corrections could be discussed.

Guys, its is rather strange to see so many shades of green and black.

when it comes to profiles, as you say ... one can see many funky designs, especially color-wise.

(i personally am in love with AMT-4... pure green, perfect green, ah! wonderfull!)

 

But when it comes to the layout of the Paintjob,  the "research" done by others is just as confusing.

So what i personally do...

 

i take my gut feeling and if it seems credible to me, it is valid as a depiction.

Is beautiful and not pink and hello kitty? gets my attention.

 

next candidate - chosen for colors, layout and logos, not because it matches the "official propaganda documentation"

 

because when it comes to Painting planes... Nobody is right. Everybody is wrong.

Yes I know. That's why I wrote "I'm currently working on "Za Nikolaya" , Merkulov's Yak-7B as a Yak-1B."

 

Anyway, it's finished now and posted above. And from my source the scheme is from Sept 1943.

I've been working on it but still need to tweak the mouth and make that specific camo bands. Life has been tearing me away the last couple of days.
