@ 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.

HI Remco

lovely job so far.   One question regarding the La-7 canopies, are they made for the Gavia/Eduard La-7 kit, with a too narrow rear section, or are they corrected, but meaning you need to adjust the rear fuselage of the La-7 kit? 

I think the correction for the La-7 is quite simple, adding a small wedge at the rear of the cockpit opening, but means then the supplied canopy is too narrow.

If they are not corrected, perhaps better to use the La-5FN canopy on the La-7.  Would it fit?

I, [and I'm sure other members], would be interested in the answers to this, as I have the kit, but not the vac canopies, I was going to email Rob Taurus to ask.

This might be worth a separate thread, as it would then be easier to find

thank you

Troy,

You have great point here. I have the both, and going to buy the pavla canopy. I used the rear part of the kit suplied canopy. Front and mid section are Squadron. I also have the La-7 kit and the best rebuild is to use the body of the Zvezda La-5fn on the Eduard wings and engine section. The rear section of the La-5fn (late type) and La-7 are the same.

Regards,

Remco

The filters are in place. I have to do the wheel wells and landing gear a couple times with the filter. Now i have to "chip" the metal parts. Unfortunally, i have not much time to do some serious modeling. So i have to find some time to do this right.

Hey guys!

Its a whole new weathering world to me here. Aircraft have a bit more "sophisticated" weathering. So i had to adapt my skills from tank to aircraft. Its difficult to make damages and chips on a largely wooden aircraft with few pannellines. Also the wooden parts were kept in mint condition (your wing should not rotten off, while in combat doing a barrelroll). On photo's i have seen that the aluminium parts were ''less'' maintain. Also, the places by the cockpit and wingroot were sometimes worn off. No wood visible, but the camouflage splotches were worn. This due maintenance and boarding and exiting the plane. I still have to do some aluminium chips and darker panellining, but this is the story so far. O, have i mention that everything has fallen or broken off?? a part is missing... aircraft modelling by me is doomed!

Once, again, looking great, remco! As far as losing parts, that's just the "fun" part of modelling - we've all done that. In the English-speaking world we call it "the carpet monster"; rugs and carpets that have a voracious appetite for model parts. What do you call it in French or Dutch?

Hi Remco,
I see that Carpet Monster is entity living all around the world Wink
Seriosly, I really like your build, Remco. Keep going.
Maybe you could consider Tamiya Panel Line Accent Color. It would enhance little details, lines and thus optically broke monotone areas. There is black, brown and grey one, you can mix any tone - darker for upper surface and different covers, and lighter for und surface and panel lines etc.

Hey gus!

@ Jason- The carpetmonster is a good phrase. In French i don't know, but in Dutch we can call it "tapijt monster". We don't really have a word for this "phenomenom". This plane is (i think) very nice. I wanted to build the whole series, so we have a couple to go and perfect my aircraft modelingskills

@ 66misos- I shall look for this Tamiya product. I just have seen some reviews and its seems a good product.

Excellent job with the weathering, remco! I need to get back to my La-5's (all in 1/72nd scale, though).
