I scratchbuilt one of these awhile ago never believing that anyone would produce a decent kit but Musa has done it.







A growing family. My scratchbuilt version is at the back. An La 174 (La 15 prototype) is a left - a rush job from an old kit of Russian origin.
Musa's La 150 at the front


However the new style resin canopy is not without its problems

Hi John, was your scratchbuilding based on a Mystere IV of Matchbox?

Massimo - No it started life allegedly as a 176 and ended up as a mixture of that kit and a Mig 15. See the following for details
