Volume № 10 of the Profile & Scale series covers the famous Yakovlev Yak-3 fighter to an entirely new standard of authenticity. More than 75 Yak-3 examples are faithfully documented in full-colour profile, many appearing for the first time. Many pages of original and not previously published 1:48 scale line drawings reveal the development and complexity of the Yak-3 family as never before. These line drawings are the culmination of nearly 30 years' dedicated work on the Yak family, and should present the most complete, accurate and illuminating scale work regarding the aircraft at the present time. The book presents many development and variant detail facts about the Yak-3 which have been-- despite its popularity-- unclear. The scale drawings and profiles are complimented by photographs, diagrams, appendicies and other documentary material to explain the technical and construction details of all of the production versions of the Yak-3, to include the mysterious all-metal post-war model which has hitherto been completely misunderstood. Many of the colour profiles represent examples which will be familiar to students of the Yak-3, albeit completed to the utmost standard of accuracy. Several profiles will doubtless be new even to experienced readers, and it is hoped these will delight both the casual reader and the serious student, equally. A brief awards and claim graphic is provided for a number of aces. These pilot cards will round out a volume which should be a treasure trove of information regarding the Yak-3 fighter for both modellers and students of history.
