Hi guys. I ordered the ARK 1/48 Yak-7di. I was wondering would the Eduard Yak-7 photo etch set be appropriate for this? I am unsure if I should be looking for Yak-7 or Yak-9 items since the 7di is more like an early Yak-9. What do you think? Thanks!

The early Yak 9s and late Yak 7s were very difficult to tell apart. I'd say that much of the Eduard set will be usable, especially the cockpit parts.
