Hi all,
I would add a further small difference: the plate of La-5FN is more curved in section on its front side; its thin exhaust pipes require less depth than the single one of La-5/5F.

Hey guys Cheesy

The small differences you pointed out are all accounted, have been noticed and will be added, removed or altered  Smiley
I have just filtered and washed the cockpit walls, bottom and frames. Now its time to add the colored PE in place. I always do this on the last step before assembling the whole thoughether. Some new wiring has to be done. Also the flaps inside frames are installed. I have to fill out some small gaps to have a nice and clean fit on the wings. This is (till now  Grin) a very ''friendly'' kit to work with. No big issues have occurred here. I will post some photo's before assembling  Cheesy

Hi Remco,
good work indeed. Such internal details deserve to be made visible.

Hey guys  Cheesy

I have almost done the whole interior, and then we close this chapter of the build and go to the outside...
I have painted the tailwheel A-14 grey, but i don't really have an idea how to paint the main landinggear and inside of the landinggear doors. Should i paint it all A-14 grey, all in ATM-7 blue or the gear in A-14 grey and the inside of the landinggear doors AMT-7 blue?

Any ideas?

Regards,

Remco

Hi Remco,
the inside of the main wheel doors was dark, so I think for the tail wheel doors even if their inner face is not visible in photos.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Hi Remco,

I checked russian forum scalemodels.ru and refferences I found when I built my La-5 and La-5FN.
The most often recommendation is A-14 for main landing gear legs, wheel discs and inside of the landing gear doors. There are photos showing that in some cases discs or legs are of different color - then AMT-7 or silver (not NMF) is considered.
If photo evidence does not not clearly show different colors I would use(as I already used) A-14.
LaGG-3 and La-7 are different case.

Thanks guys!

Jason, the reason i did the whole interior is that i don't know the series. I want to build the whole series from LaGG-3 till La-7. Now i can see what i have "overdetailed" and can decide what not to add.
I hope that my Il-2 is easier to build and detail (guess not... I have every option available on this kit)

Hey guys  Cheesy

Assembley is going good here. Some small setbacks and adjusments i made, due my lack of aircraftbuilding  Grin
I wil add some photo's before i put in the armored glass, seat and armorplate.
I have a color question: is the same color (AMT-11) different on the parts with fabric? Wil the same color be darker or lighter? Has it a some "fabric glow" shinning throu? Who can tell me? Thanks in advance

Great job on the interior! Opening the rear fuselage door is a good idea.
