While scouring the internet for a warbird to build, I came across Seagull's Yak-3U. This is a limited recent production (maybe only one model was built) modified from a Soviet WW2 airplane that is a racer. I loved the design and the finish, so I ordered from HobbyGulf out in Abu Dhabi. I had built the Seagull T-34 last year and was very happy with the quality of that kit.


Experience level Intermediate / Advanced
Wingspan 160 cm / 63 in

Overall length 140.6 cm / 55.4 in
Flying weight 5.2 kg / 11.5 lbs
Power system 15-20 cc gasoline engine

The kit arrived double boxed and very safely packaged. The time from ordering to the large box arriving ay my doorstep was approximately three weeks, which is not bad given the size and distance.
