Dear fellow Britmodellers,

there's been a couple of Eduard 1/72 Lavochkins around here, recently.

May I add another one to the growing collection?

This is "White 23" from 2nd Sqn, 2nd GIAP, “Mongolsky Arat”, operating in spring 1945.

The model was built from the 'Profi Pack' which includes paint masks and photo etch details.

I replaced the pitot tube with a piece of wire.

The spinner of Eduard's kit is slightly mis-shaped, resembling a "kremlin tower"; this was substituted with a resin item from Hungarian manufacturer SBS Models.

Painted with acrylics from the Mr.Hobby range.

Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes.

Thanks for your interest!

As mentioned before, here's the kit's problematic spinner (in White) compared to the aftermarket item by SBS:

Hi Again Roman!!!

Congratulations for this nicely done Labotchka.

I don't have any Eduard kit in my stash, but watching your nicely done build and judging the quality of their kits was thinking seriously in some of them, as seem the kit has all the details missing in the others, and even buying a new spinner seem the investment pays its benefits. The problem would be what I will do with the older ones, the answer is build them anyway.  This colorful birs look res'lendent inthis color combination and the build liked me a huge lot.

Thank you very much for sharing.

Cheers,

 

Luis Alfonso

That's a beauty Roman.  Even with this diminutive aeroplane you've managed to make it look 1/48th!
