Hello,

this is the new release Kovozávody Preostejov Lavochkin La-5FN in markings of the Slovak Uprising, 1944.

I had high expectations following the release of Kovozávody Preostejov's Mustang series, however, this kit looks as if it's been produced by a different manufacturer.

There are no locating aids, some flesh present and heavy sprue gates.

Having said that, the kit goes together without any major issues.

Kovozávody Preostejov have done the 'open canopy' option in a very unusual way, providing both clear hoods (that slide over each other) as one massive piece.

You will need to paint the underlying canopy rails from the inside - not an easy task.

This is still a very welcome new release as it's the only modern, up-to-date tool of an La-5FN.

Here's how mine turned out, built from the box:
