  1. Zvezda is to release a new tool 1/48th Lavochkin-Gorbunov-Gudkov LaGG-3 kit - ref. 4833 Source: https://vk.com/zvezdamodels?w=wall-29859496_2798054 V.P.
  2. Thanks Tali ! Clear Prop Models is working on a 1/72nd Lavochkin-Gorbunov-Gudkov LaGG-3 - ref. ? Source: http://www.greenmats.club/forums/topic/6676-clear-prop-models-172-лагг-3-–-в-разработке/ 3D render V.P.
  3. Hi all First finished build of the year but started last year- i'm not that quick! I went for ICM's Lagg-3 kit as my first ever Soviet aircraft- always had a soft spot for the Lagg-3 and enjoyed the build. It went together ok but a bit of work was needed to get the gun bulge inserts to fix into the engine cowling piece properly. I really enjoyed the painting and weathering. I knew I wanted to have a go at a winter scheme and went for number 64 of 3.Gv.IAP flown by Georgy Kostylev who named the plane his "Columbine Tale" (I confess I have no idea to what that refers to!) I used MRP for the green/black/blue and then went with Tamiya white for the winter coat so to bring in the hairspray chipping. I was pretty happy with that but felt that the edges were too harsh so after a matt coat i wet the surface and used a weathering pencil to dab on more white around the edges and a brush to blend. This made the made look more like it was washing off rather than chipping off. This particular aircraft is shown not to have a canopy hood so I put a few more details into the cockpit than i normally would. Hope you like it, back to tanks next but sticking with the Russian theme with the 1/48 Hobbyboss KV-1. Graeme
  4. Hi All! Famous kit. I couldn’t do it right away. Spoiled the paint and red stars with varnish. Repainted. Replaced the damaged canopy with a vacuum part. I built an airplane of early series. I took the pre-war paint scheme from I-16. Polished the surface of this wooden fighter. And removed the antenna mast. On Russian planes before the war, there was often no radio. Enjoy watching.
  5. It took me a while since it was a side project I was building whenever I felt tired with what I was working on at the time. I`ve bought some photo equipment so, I thought it`s a good moment to finally take some pictures of the finished model. Painted with Hataka Orange (love them). Weathered with MIG and AK products and oil paints. I`ve added the Eduard`s PE set. I`m sure the number of the mistakes is overwhelming, still wanted to have it on my shelf.
  6. This 48th scale kit is my most recent and my proudest kit. Though the icm decals discintergrated in water, i am very fond of my work and the kit. The kit overall fitted well together, the wings required a bit of sanding to get the right shape but apart from these the kit was very nice.
  7. 1/48th Lavochkin-Gorbunov-Gudkov LaGG-3 srs.66 kit expected - one day ? - by Mars Models - ref. ? Source: https://www.facebook.com/MarsModels.UA/photos/a.581699528637812.1073741831.568843716590060/990001894474238/?type=3&theater 3D render V.P.
  8. I spot something in the Hasegawa's Nuremberg pictures from Thomas Voigt. Two 1/48th kits announced for March-June 2015: a Lavochkin La-7 "156.IAP" and a LaGG-3 "Finnish Air Force". Hasegawa being now more a decals editor than a 1/48th aircraft new tool producer these must be repop. Origin of these two kits?

  9. These are the first models I bought and finished since I moved to Denmark- the Eastern Express/Dakoplast LaGG-3 series 66 and the Zvezda Yak-3, both 1/72. The Eastern Express kit requires quite a bit of clean-up and filler to get to fit well at the wing-to-fuselage join. I used the kit decals to model it as Yuri Shchipov's mount, but only half of them came off the sheet or worked, with the result that I only decaled one side of the plane (and even then, not fully). The multi-part canopy fit poorly and I broke one of the bits, hence the pose with the open canopy. Next is the 'snap-fit' Yak-3 from Zvezda, done in (what else) the markings of Normandie-Niemen ace Marcel Albert, one of the kit's options. Sadly, the kill markings were off-register. For a snap-fit kit, it's overengineered.Once put together, there were some unsighlty bumps and depressions due to to the snap fit which I tried to smooth out to the best of my abilities. I ended up repainting the spinner decal markings as they did not fit very well. Both kits were painted with what Humbrol and Revell enamels I had at hand. The AMT-12 and AMT-11 were made up of different mixes of Humbrol 106, 230 and 165, though for the Yak-3, I used Humbrol 106 alone for the AMT-12. The underside AMT-7 was a 4:1:1 mix of Humbrol 65:Revell 50:Humbrol 165 and the interior a 3:1 mix of Humbrol 165 and Humbrol 230. This was the first time I used Vallejo Matt Varnish, with the unfortunate side-effect of white streaks or spots. The ones you see are those which would not disappear with re-gloss and matt coating. Last but not least is the Kora 1/72 EKW C-3602, a Swiss multi-purpose combat aircraft whose Wikipedia article rather generously compared it to the Ilyushin Il-2: Yes, it's the odd one out but I had only one good quality picture of this model, so I threw it in here. By the way, the Wikipedia article doesn't contain the line about the Il-2 anymore. As with the other Kora kit I built, it's got a lot detail and a lot of small parts. Besides large pour stubs on the parts, the only serious problem was a warped fuselage. The plane was finished in RLM 70 over RLM 65. Some of the kit decals needed retouching, which I hope is not obvious from the pics. As usual, thanks for looking! Comments are welcome.
  10. Two hour build! These kits are aimed at war gamers primarily so parts count and detail are both low, but I love 1:144, and Russian WWII subjects are thin on the ground so this kit appealed to me. I needed something fun to build as I've got a few projects that are trudging along and I just wanted something I could build quickly and get finished. That's when it hit me... How fast can I build it? I originally thought I'd just build it and see how long it took but then decided to set a two hour limit. I just came in under it with the help of very thinned out paint and a hair dryer. Brush painted with Tamiya & Revell acrylics, Humbrol Clear and a final spray of Tamiya matt varnish. So if you're ever experiencing "builders block", grab one of these Zvezda kits (109, Hurricane, Lagg-3, IL-2, Stuka) and have some fun!
