YaK-15 Gallery Page

This is a Czech Model kit in 1/48 scale. It's a limited run multimedia kit with both low pressure injection molded parts and cast resin parts. As such it is a more laborious build with lots of test fitting and usually lots of sanding and filling. This aircraft was one of only two cases where a piston engined aircraft was successfully converted to jet power. Al of my trials and tribulations can be seen in the build log. It's a fairly simple kit and in spite of the issues I had fun building it.

Next are some comparison photos taken with the YaK-3 which was the aircraft that was the basis for the YaK-15.
