1/48 Eduard/Gavia Lavochkin La-7

The latest off the bench as I continue to attempt to clear out the shelf of doom. This one had a MASSIVE wing root gap that got it shelved for years, but I got it sorted and I'm so glad I did. Not a huge fan of the Russian stuff, but the La-7 is pretty sleek!

The La-7 is pretty sleek indeed and yours looks so real, especially the close-ups by the wing, could be standing right next to it. The weathering and paint finish are just right.

The engine exhaust over unpainted metal is superb. And the cockpit is outstanding! Excellent model!

Superb Build & Beautiful paint job!

Since i intend to build one myself i would like to know which Neomega Cockpit ( item# ) did you use, i checked their site but could only find one for the Zvezda LA-5.

 

Cheers

Ambitious build, stunning result! It just looks… totally convincing. Not least that delectable discolouring of the metal panel behind the exhausts.

 

Kind regards,

Thanks everyone! It's been a while since I built an older kit like this so I'm pleased it turned out as well as it did.

I'm not sure if they even make it anymore, I've had it for ages. Here's the box
