Hello Troy,

I know and I have this decal sheet. The first aircraft is a La-5 from 960IAP-125IAD early in 1943. This aircraft is often showed as the one flown by Francisco Merono Pellicer. From my knowledge, there is no evidence that she was is own but Pellicer was in the unit when this photo has been taken...
The inscription in Russian is "Squadron named for Hero of the Soviet Union Alexander Chekalin".
This aircraft is in my future projects too.
I built a model of a Spanish Ace: the I-15 "Chato" flown by Juan Lario Sanchez from 2a Escuadrilla de Caza early in 1938 (1/48 from Special Hobby).


Thank you for your help. It's very appreciable to feel himself helped, I love this "little" World of Modellers...
regards
Steph

there is nothing written behind, and in a spanish forum, they wonder if this pic represent his plane or it's a generic La-5 pic...

Hello,

Thank you very much for your nice comments... If Massimo permits it, I'll post others photos on "general modeling".
Xan, I know this early model La-5FN, I don't know if she was flown by Luis Lavin but I built this model (1/48 Zvezda kit) to describe the early La-5FN "white 95" flown by Kirill A. Evstigneev in 240 IAP, 302 IAD  from Autumn 1943 to Spring 1944...

Still thank you for your researches Xan, amicalement

Hello Xan,

I don't remember very well the colors I used to paint this model... I think the base was Humbrol 116, 117 and 80 for uppersurfaces and Humbrol 65 and 89 for undersurfaces.

Regarding the La-5FN, The AMT-7 is Humbrol 65 and Humbrol 89. The AMT-11 is "AMT-7" with 40% black and AMT-12 is "AMT-7" with 70% black.
Lots of problems for the assembling of the wings with the fuselage !!! Angry, I broke the model to begin another one... Embarrassed Finally, I changed the step of building: I glued all the cockpit in the fuselage, closed the fuselage and glued all on the wings, no problem...

Thanks for your comment, best regards

That's what I experienced and ultimately gave up on the kit (didn't throw it out though).
It's amazing that all reviews I read are praising the kit so highly for accuracy AND construction!
I think they're being hipocritical. Kit is over-engineered, not good in my book.
Salut,
Mario

Yes and no.
At that time I was beginning to see that something was wrong with these colors.
For the AMT-12 I used WEM's mixed with red as suggested on EP's VVS forum by a guy named Airacobra (Ilya Grinberg?).
It did indeed remove a bit of the green from this paint.

And of course it's Popkov's. What a great pilot!!

Hi all,
really beautiful models, and well photographed. Thank you for sharing these images.
New photos of models will be welcome, of course.
Please, if you post photos of models or discussions, try to include only one type of plane, because I'm reordering the posts according to this criteria.
Regards
