Here's a look at Special Hobby's excellent mixed media Hi-Tech boxing of their new largescale Yak-3.

Rowan,
Thanks for the review. With my pending switch to 1/32 scale for WW11 subjects other then bombers, this kit does interest me. It just might be my 1st Russian aircraft.

I'm really interested in their Tempest, and I mean REALLY interested.

Hi Joel

You'll like my next review then. Oops! I've let the cat out of the proverbial bag!

Seriously, if the Yak's good, then the Tempest is looking gorgeous! Work permitting, I hope to get stuck in properly tomorrow, but the sprue pics are taken and I just need to do some test-fitting before the write-up.

The only real problem is... which to build first! I know - I'm lucky to have such worries!

All the best

Rowan
