Hi there. This is the Revell 1/72 La-5FN kit I made years ago. The original post is still somewhere deep in the forum pages but it is hard to find for me. Anyways I decided it was looking awful and the colours were wrong so I thought about doing a little bit rework on it and turn it into a hypothetical (always my favorite) winter wash. It turned out better than I expected. I experimented Marabu Decorlack I newly accuired. It is a rather satisfactory white paint I must admit.







Cheers!

A Lavockin? Great!! Paintwork looks nice, but unfortunaly the FNs wern't white. The red army had air suprirority in the time the FN hits the winter in 1943/44.
