YAK 18. Primary trainer in service just after the second world war.

Looks like a variant of the Yak 18. Not seen the bulged cowl and trike combination before though?

Could it be an early yak52?

It's the 18U.
IIRC Pete Miller had a C/L semi-scale stunt Yak18 published in Aeromodeller but I'm can't remember which version he chose to base it on.

In fact it was this version Quite a nice model. I did toy with an R/C version a while ago but lost interest. I still have the plastic kit of it.
I also have an excellent set of 1/10th scale Polish scale drawings of the aircraft.
It was later developed into the very successful 18 PM competition aerobatic aircraft

Love the Yak 18 PM, one of the last big aerobats, they're all tiny flighty pieces now, the grace has gone!
