    That's a lean mean fighter machine. I like how some of the green paint is wearing through the white... I'm going to be doing something similar on my FW. Well done!

    Thanks guys for all the kind words. It did go together quickly but there was, in reality, very few pieces to this bird and being retired with I can spend many hours a day working away on the models if I so choose.

    The decals were a problem as has already been mentioned. Even the second time around the starboard side tail star failed to co-operate so I had to hand paint one which turned out okay and a little extra weathering over top hides it pretty well.

    Nothing like looking at your work in pictures to see all the warts that somehow are missed before the photos are taken.

    Anyhow, thanks again....this group build stuff is fun and I can honestly say I have learned more about Russian aircraft in the last 18 days then I knew before this GB start.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Used some very fine sandpaper and rubbed very lightly. I was pleased with how it turned out.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Great job! The Lagg-3 is a cool looking plane. I think I need to add one to my stash.

    Jeff,

    Real nice effort there. Your Lagg came together well. Nice weathering with the white and base colour.
