Title: Lavochkin La-5 FN 1/48 Zvezda
Post by: Ohotnyik on September 29, 2018, 05:59:44 PM
Hello,
It was some time ago that I have showed you anything, but now I íll try to catch up and share with you my recently finished models.
I will not show the building process as it was done allready by several of you, but I will showcase photoes about the painting and the ready model.

My approach was to compare the existing photoes and drawings and make the most possible version.
It was difficult to chose becasue of the light-shadow contrast of the pics.

The fighter was flown by Lt. Rakov. I could not collect any more information about the unit or the pilot.
As you can see on the photoes the numbering was not put on the manufacturing plant. As I know the numbering in the plant are regularly two digit numbers, but here there is only one. You can also recognise that the original numbering was repainted. As the original decals did not fit to the shape of the number, one of my friends made a template for the number and I airbrushed  it. The light colour of the propeller can be because of the sun, as you cannot see that wear on the downward propeller wing.

Hi,
how do you do?
You have made an excellent La-5FN. I like this model very much.
Making that number wasn't easy, I think.
This is one of my preferred profiles.
Regards
Massimo
