    Well, NOBI,
    That looks like a Yak 15 or Yak 17 to me (they're pretty close), but I could be wrong. The nose intake in your picture and the windscreen angle has me a bit stumped, but that's my guess.

    It looks like Jak 23 to me, but I may be wrong ;-)

    I'm not sure if Nobi's latest is a Jak or the German experimental craft the Jak series was based on....however, while crusing the web to try to confirm my suspicion, I ran across this


    Has some neat stuff, well worth the surf.

    A bit of research gives:

    Yak-15 - tailwheel undercarriage
    Yak-17 - tricycle undercarriage with nosewheel folding back into a fairing underneath the fuselage
    Yak-23 - completely restractable nosewheel with two doors on each side of the nosewheel well but no fairing or cover over the nosewheel

    So it looks like it's a Yak-17 (imho)

    Do i hear a YAK-17 from your mouth? that is your last answer? Charliec

    YESSSS that is YAK-17, first Ryan and other guy not tell that is YAK-17...Ryan not sure it is YAK-15 or YAK-17. Mark have many choice...he said 15, 17 or 23. Ziga you are nearly right but that is not YAK-23...sorry Ziga. Shrike go to Caproni...well that is very intersting subject but u wrong...

    Charliec, u will got this YAK-17 ASAP (after i finish assemble it :D) and i think we will have good news from Ron soon

    The Yak was supposedly "borrowed" by the US in the mid-fifty's. The story is that it was put in a boxcar in an un-named Eastern Bloc country, moved across a firendly border, put in a giant C-124 transport, and flown to the US.

    It was tested for a short time at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, then dismantled, flown back to Europe oin the Globemaster, backinthe rail car and back across the border without being discovered.

    Might not be true, but it should have been!
