     One of three Accurate Miniatures Yakovlev Yak-1's that I obtained through an Internet Sale at Squadron.com, or Great Models, or some such, I don't recall exactly who.

Aftermarket Extras

Alpha Flight set Eduard detail set Eduard Photoetch set Moskit real metal Blast Tubes for the 7.62mm ShKAS
The Alpha Flight set that is only available from Great Models over the Internet in the USA. This neat little set includes a resin replacement Razorback upper fuselage. The Eduard detail set in Photoetch that doesn't have the flaps - of which I have two sets The other Eduard Photoetch set that is the same as that pictured left but also contains a set of flaps. Moskit real metal Blast Tubes for the 7.62mm ShKAS machine guns relevant to the Yak-1 Razorback. These Blast tubes actually go under the engine cowling so these are only of use if you are displaying this open. Hence I only have one set of these.
Moskit Yak-1 Exhaust Pipes Falcon Clear Vax Canopy Set Number 37    
Moskit again but these are five sets of the Yak-1 Exhaust Pipes. This set is shared with the Yak-7 Razorback and includes a small cooling air outlet. Falcon Clear Vax Canopy Set Number 37.    

Decals

Great Models set for the Yak-1 Great Models set for the Yak-1    
The Great Models set for the Yak-1 (& 1b) features two Razorbacks: 183rd IAP and 77th IAP. The Decal sheet itself. This sets is very similar to a Super Scale set and closer inspection of the decals shows that it produced by them for Great Models.
