Hi guys!

Thanks Jason! I have put on the final laquer coat to protect the base collors. I used the Alclad aqua coat to (almost) do the job. It sprays perfect. Its almost decal time!! I wil post some photo's when the laquer has dried. The canopy section is ready and can be glued on the model. I wonder if i see my hard work on the inside...

Regards,

Remco

As promised, the photo's. I just put on the decals, and i was a challange to put the No. 14 on the fuselage half with the hatch open. I had to cut out the 14 on the spot and prey it goes ok... And it did! Now i hope no more stuff breaks off, or cracks... Undecided

What a pity. However the double canopy of the kit gives some advantage in these cases.

This is a test every good modeller must face sooner or later. Cry
Pavla has a good vacuform canopy to replace Zvezda's.

Its finnished!!!!  I did all of the basic work, now the fun part starts. I can't wait to weather the plane.
@ Otto, thanks for the help!! I had extra spare parts for other Lavochkin models, so i took it out of my La-5 kit. I will buy the dedicated Pavla canopy for my La-5fn. I have Squadron and Rob Taurus La-7 canopies, and the Taurus are better. These have the rivets on the canopy frame.

@ Massimo, the damage was minor, after a second look. I think i gonna finnish this one. Great to have a plane in the display case!

Hi Remco,
I am really curious for the finished kit. I like that dark AMT11/AMT12 colors.
However, upper wing AMT11/AMT12 areas look quite strange, not like usual, standard NKAP scheme. Is that painted according to the photo?

Thanks guys!

I think aircraftbuilding by me, is cursed. I aplied a filter and it was way to light. On a testpiece it was perfect. After removing 85% of the filter, it turned out ok. But...the ruder and one of the flaps broke... AAAAAAHRG!! All have been repaired. Now i taped the aluminium parts of, for chipping... Prey it goes ok  Roll Eyes
