On a Aircraft Modeling site I frequent there was this link to a Yak-1 being restored to flying condition.
After looking at the work they did, seems to me they are making nearly everything brand new and using the old parts for patterns as they are too old and too far gone for any use.
Draw your own conclusions at this link:

It ain't a Yak until they have a Viktor Klimov in it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Valencia, returning in his shot-up but airworthy Hellcat after his harrowing February 1944 mission over Truk, summed up the thoughts of many pilots about Hellcats: ?If they could cook, I?d marry one.?

Probably end up being an Allison. There are no Klimov's around.

I would absolutely adore a Yak-1 in flying condition. That'd be an amazing sight!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
