Welcome, I managed to finish the new model, it is a LaGG-3 Russian fighter of World War II, in a rather interesting painting. Like any model that does airbrush painted, added a slight traces of use. Since the models do not collect it only executes them all exposed to ebay.com. Regards Raphael after a long break.

Nice one Rafal. I have this one on the to do list. I read that its a complicated model with some trouble spots. Is that true ?

Well that certainly puts my old LTD kit to shame. Very nicely done. Is the colour scheme Finnish?

The model is not too complicated, requiring only large amounts of putty, fitting all is well.
The model is made in winter 1941 Galchenko painting. Modeled on the boards of color who did Tessitori Massimo from Italy.

Very nice work! Thanks for the WIP link. Although I don't know Polish, the pictures speak for themselves. The good thing with LaGG-3 is the wooden construction, much less panel lines to worry about when puttying joints.

The camo indeed looks quite like the Finnish.
I got one of these kits in my stash along with Vector's resin cockpit and Quickboost exhausts, with plans to build it as flown by the Finnish air force. I just to find the time and energy to get back on the workbench. Oh well, at least there's the summer coming up.

Thank you, I built a total of two "LaGG-3", the major problems was not only a lot of filling, the only problem, the model quite interesting. Maybe in the future will build another one, for example, in Japanese painting.

Really nice looking model! Especially slight and accurate weathering. Is this Zvezda's kit?
