SPECIAL HOBBY 1/32
Yakovlev Yak-3 Normandie Niemen Hi-Tech kit. The Hi-Tech kit decal sheet provides for five Normadie-Niemen camouflage options, all of them adorned with a lightning artwork on the fuselage. Four of the machines were flown by French aces, including the very best of them, Lt.Marcel Albert.
The kit comes on five sprues of grey styrene and one clear parts frame. What makes the difference of a Hi-Tech kit is the addition of alternative components made from resin and other materials. These comprise for example the resin exhausts and undercarriage wheels (mainwheels as well as the tailwheel), wireless set, gun cocking levers or gun muzzles. The modeller will also find a set of pre-cut masks and photo-etched parts offering seat harness and several smaller parts to fit into the cockpit.
