I'm new to the site, and thought I'd post some of my recent Russian WWII fighter planes builds. I've developed an interest in VVS subjects recently, so I've been building quite a few. I suppose I can be best described as a "Barney Builder", meaning I tend to build OOB, and I generally try and get reasonably close with colors based on what I have at hand, but I don't worry to much if it's not 100% correct. So forgive me if my accuracy is low.... Smiley

This is the bird that got me started, from reading "Redstar Airacobra". It's the Eduard kit in 1/48 scale:


This is the Monogram kit in 1/48 scale:


This is Ark Models' 1/48 MiG-3:


This is Trumpeter's MiG-3 Late Version in 1/48:


This is Eduard's 1/48 La-7. I haven't had time to take a proper photo yet! Smiley


I'm still learning how to appropriate weather and finish the aircraft... part of my reason for joining this forum! Cheesy

Thank you Jason!

Actually, I just ordered an Accurate Miniatures Shturmovik from Ebay at a pretty good price. I wanted the Tamiya kit, but it costs a few more dollars than I was able to spend. I'm looking forward to building it!

I'm also building the Eduard Yak-3 and the ICM LaGG-3 Series 1-4 kit right now. I may also start on a dual La-5/La-5FN build here soon, both being the ICM kits. I may wait a bit to start on those, as I am also building a 1/48 TBF for a commission build.

Really nice models. I like particulatly the P-39s.
I think that you mean that La-5- 5FN are of Zvezda. I have them too still to build.

Thank you also, Massimo! Yes, the Zvezda kits are the ones I will be building. It will be my first time building their kits.

Thanks Jean! It's a combination of various post-shading and fading with the airbrush, oil washes and streaks, and silver prismacolor pencil. I had to learn to weather models to cover up mistakes! Smiley

Hi John,

Your models look great  Cheesy I like your la-7 with the yellow spinner! For models straight out of the box they look very cool. A nice painted model i prefer above a good build, but poor paint job  Grin
I am busy to paint my mig-3 cockpit, and will be my first since 1996... I hope it will be nice....

Regards,
