Arguably World War II's premiere lightweight fighter, the fast, agile Yak-3 forged fame as one of the conflict's most potent warplanes.
Yakovlev Yak-3 – part of MMP's "Spotlight On" series – sports 42 superb color plates by Artur Juszczak.
Soviet. French. Yugoslav. Juszczak superbly samples the sumptuous swath of Yak-3 warpaint. And his stunning artwork will certainly motivate your modeling muse.
Contents commence with a one-page "Introduction". That's where you find handy performance, service and markings notes on the lithe little design.
The study then swiftly segues to color plates – all of Yak-3s with VK-107PF2 engines. Each sports one profile, operator notes, and camouflage comments. Grab those Yak-3 kits!
Gripes? No plan views! MMP: will you please consider including top and bottom aspects – even small insets – to those pulchritudinous profiles? Subject reference photos wouldn't hurt, either.
Add some color to your collection. Get this vivid "Spotlight On" volume.
