Guys,

My new toy, a Yak-50, has a paint scheme inspired by a paint scheme I use in IL2. So life imitates art in this case!

You can find a photo diary about my new toy at www.yak50.blogspot.com (http://www.yak50.blogspot.com). I can only wonder what SoW will bring for us, when it finally arrives.

I've asked Oleg to consider adding a Yak-50 model to the Su-26 model apparently in SoW. He said that he'll look into the possibility.

Happy flying until SoW!

As is the case for anything to do with aviation, I spent more than my budget but much less than what I'd have to pay for an equivalent western aircraft.

Thanks for your compliment about the paint scheme. Looks like the time spent learning how to paint IL2 aircraft paid off!

It will be a lot of fun when I finally get the bird and can fly it!

Some friends have complained they can't come up for joyrides in a single seat aircraft.

They don't get it when I tell them most WW2 fighters were single seaters, and so having two seats wasn't quite the same thing for me!

Guns would have been great - if it was part of the original design! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You're absolutely right about the horrible lemon colour. Had to stop gagging when I first saw it - really hurt my eyes! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

When everyone watches Svetlana Kapanina (Women's World Aerobatics Champion since 2002) fly, many feel inadequate! Check out her flying at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNYFFaY0QFM

Don't know how much was spent on this project, but a quick web search indicates that Yak-50's tend to be priced between 50,000 and 70,000 Euro. That converts to about $73,350 to $102,700 U.S., so they are not exactly cheap, but still well below what you would pay for a Spitfire or Mustang.

Excellent, but you really need a 37mm cannon firing through the spinner.

DPS.

A poor man's warbird?? In the US you'd have to be a millionaire to own something like that. Either that or go into one of those multi-owner deals with several other people.

I think the recoil from that monster would make the aircraft fly backwards!

The prices you quoted are typical for "as is" purchases. If a fully overhauled and repainted zero-timed airframe and engine bird is desired, then the price goes up. So I decided to bite the bullet and coughed up the extra cash.

Thought I'd share this picture of a Yak partisipating in an airshow at Rygge, Norway, this summer. Clearly inspired by MiG-3.

Nice photo! G-FUNK's serial number is 852908. In total, 310 Yak-50s were built. Decoding the serial number is straightforward. The first two digits are the year of manufacture (1985). Next two digits are the batch number (29). Each batch had 10 aircraft. So the last two digits represent the 8th aircraft in the batch of 10.

The Yak-50 was designed by Sergei Yakovlev and another engineer. Sergei is the son of Alexander, the famous WW2 Yak fighter designer.
