    Another image of the Yak was sent my way.


    I'd say it has progressed quite a bit.

    What's the difference between this Yak and the Yak 9?
    Is this the same airframe that Czec Mate uses?

    This is a Yak-3. Yak-9 is a much heavier long range air frame built as more of a er escort that pure fighter. Czech Mate is built on the Yak-11 platform which was radial powered.

    Actually, I think this is a Yak 11 converted to run an Allison. At this stage, I'm not sure how much Yak is left, but there is a lot of custom there. I gotta say, it looks good.

    While I love airplanes, especially fast airplanes (like purpose built racers), I absolutely love looking at the skills involved to build one of these; the design and metal work is simply a work of art!

    Not to derail the thread, but watching all the Mike Patey videos on his YouTube channel are simply amazing! His skills and knowledge are unbelievable. If you ever find yourself bored one day, go down the rabbit hole and watch his Draco build videos as well as the Scrappy videos!

    I am fired up to see this build finished!
