Hi all and thanks by advance.
My request is about Yak 1, Yak 9 and Yak 3 used by the Normandie Niemen squadron. In summer and winter versions. So 6 skins.
They have to be white 69 and customized with the Père Magloire's face.
Here is the Marcel Lefèvre's white 14 Père Magloire plane. And the Père Magloire's face.

Thanks Skinners.

Hi Idefix44. Would these be any good?

Yak-9


Yak-9 winter


Yak_3 winter


I realise the code numbers on the winter versions are not correct, but I was thinking the red color would make them more visible against the winter white wash (better contrast imho), they can be changed of course. These skins include the Yak 9 & 3 90 percent ready by the time of these screenies. If you like what you see and want the Yak 1 from me, give me a couple of days, I need to upgrade the template.

Regards,
Emel

Me too, please Emel. I already fly several Normandie Niemen Yaks to keep my French relatives happy and it would be great to add these to the collection. In fact I'm sure most serious skin collectors will want them. En avant, mon brave!

Wingco.

Hi, idefix
Hi, Emel thank you for all good work and the assiduity which you carry on the site. Cool
If you want to make a historical skin, here some information on this plane.

A little history and some details if you want to make a historically accurate skin.

Yak-9 belonging to Lieutenant Marcel Lefèvre (11 aerial victories). His personal insignia is the head of Père (Grandfather ) Magloire painted on the left side only, the name and the effigy of famous Calvados brandy distillery in the Normandy, region where he was born.

At the return of a mission on May 28th, 1944, at the moment when it begins its landing, its fuselage starts to smoke, letting escape a fine white vapor, it is a pipe breakage of petrol, one of the defects of Yakovlev. Marcel Lefévre throws his plane on the ground without being able to prevent that it does not blaze up brutally. He jumps of the cockpit, very seriously burned on all the body, just before the Yak explodes. He will die following his wounds in Moscow on June 5th, 1944.

About the cross of Lorraine, it was painted instead of red star on the vertical stabilizer only at the time of the return of the Normandy-Niemen group in France at the end of the war.

Two illustrations (sorry the text is in French)

Hi all,
To jorjus: Thanks for your involvement.
To Emel: One change to my request. Can you add the accurate Red Stars.
I know that the result will not be a historical skin. Marcel Lefèvre's ID was 14 and my request is for a 69 ID number.
So, only add the accurate Red Stars, if you agree. Rolling Eyes

A pack with both Idefix "Soixante Neuf" and the historical skins would be great. Incidentaly the Calvados is exellent and a visit to the distillery is well worthwhile.

Like this?



Here's my suggestion for the Yak 1 winter scheme.





It's rather a ragged looking finish, trying to give an impression of an early war style crudely applied winter camo.

@ Jorjus

Oh my, that is a some good stuff there, those two Lefevre-Yak's would make a good twin pack Wink

Thanks again. I like what I see. Laughing

Hi all,

Emel, as you already have the number 60, it will be possible to make later a pack of two historic yaks: 14 "Le Pére Magloire" belonging to Lt. Marcel Lefèvre and 60 "La Furie" belonging to capt. René Challe (7 aerial victories) stop service operational 17 January 1945, following an injury by a shell of 20 mm in the left arm after a duel against one Fw-190 near Gumbinnen (East Prussia)
These two planes are rare.
But this couple had existed in plastic model, see Here.

To Emel,
In the Skins folder are several variantes of Yak 1, 3 and 9.
Are your skins fully compatible ?
