Yakovlev UT-1b (Mikro-Mir 1/48) - Part 6

After the Fieseler, I chose to come back to the build of the UT-1b and honestly I am feeling quite motivated.
I procrastinated the build of the undercarriage since I didn't know how to tackle the alignment of the different parts and was concerned about not having a pegged leg aircraft. I thought of different complicated solutions or creating a jig but never managed to convince myself. Anyway, I finally solved the issue by using my sole Mk1-eyeball and it worked !

Messerschmitt Bf-109 E3 Walkaround

Walkaround of the Messerschmitt Bf-109 E3 (J-355; Werk NummerlFactory Number 2422) exhibited at the Swiss Air Force Museum at Dubendorf Air Base near Zurich, Switzerland. My wife and I visited this museum and although I was more enthusiastic than her I think she appreciated it :)





















D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS 406 Walkaround

After the Bf-109, here is a short walkaround of the Adolph Saurer AG license-built D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS-406 also exposed at the Swiss Airforce museum at Dubendorf (Switzerland). One advice, if you go in Switzerland say D-3801, not M.S. 406 or you will have to handle a diplomatic issue  - n'est ce pas G√©rard :)






















Below are a few pictures of the cockpit taken through the windows ...
