NOW they come out with some decent props for the ICM Yak 7.

Hi Vance

Better late than never, as they say. I've got so many ICM Yaks of various versions in the Stash, I'll definitely be after Sergey's sets to bring them up to scratch.

All the best

Hi guys

Glad someone is interested in that stuff, because 1. it is nice and 2. after reviewing the very nice P-39 wheel well nobody seemed to care ..

More to come. I already did the German reviews for the P-51 wheel well and the FM-2 correction set (which is really great) ... and then there is the LaGG-3 pit and the P-61 canopy .. .

Today I am working on my site, but I try to translate at least one of the other articles for Aeroscale soon ...

cheers

Steffen
