    Nice choice Dr. Serge. I've heard it's a nice kit but the decals are sometimes sketchy.

    Nice choice Dr. Serge.

    I have the Eduard LA-5 kit and I think it has markings for Kozheudub's plane but it's nice to see there were other important Soviet Fighter pilots from the great patriotic war.

    David,such a lot of pilots,they're just less popular...
    Assembly is easy,everything is a good fit.the only place the junction of wing and fuselage,it is necessary to make some effort.

    Eh? You've already completed the cockpit and have glued the fuselage halves together? Please share more pictures if you can! I was considering this kit and thought the tubular framework of the interior was interesting... would've been nice to see pictures of the work so far!
