    I finished this one early last year.  I know some have mentioned that this is a difficult kit to assemble; there were some fiddly bits but all in all i enjoyed it very much. I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

    The L is the one I really would like.......the GA. ANG operated the L....That said a warm up 86d USAFE sound like a good start.

    thanks petrov
    chipping is quite straightforward, rattlecan silver on the area desired then dabbed on maskol liquid mask with a small open pored sponge, then painted in usual way and when all is dry rubbed off in the area, i had to use masking tape to remove it though as it had dried quite hard, anyway it just rubs off and you cam weather it like the rest to your taste. Its a fairly easy thing to do but its always best to try out these things first on a scrap kit or surface, the shiny silver isnt right for all aircraft as often the primer is what is exposed but I thought the Soviet finishes were quite worn

    thanks lads, it seems fairly straightforward, i had a few nervous moments till i figured out how to jump the hurdles, the piece between the wings on the underside is too long i had to cut it in the middle so the undercarriage bay would line up at the front and the flap area would line up at the back, and if i were to do another one id mould another canopy as the kit one is too thick for 1/32nd scale, the trailing edge of the wing at the fuselage join needed heating and bending to line up properly, that said the rest was ok, the decals are very good.
     
    oh and i'd like a lagg3 a la5 and a yak 9 too please if anybody is listening????

    Did a conversion to the Swedish fighter version from the kit versions, involved redoing some intakes on the cowl, ammo drums under the wings and cowling gun blisters

    An earlier build sadly this pic has outlived the model, but still one of my favourite aircraft
     

    If any of you still have this kit you'll know that the canopy is very fiddly with its metal frame-I abandoned it and used an after market canopy from a 1/48th HIEN -but don't tell anyone...

    Built out of the box apart from the markings, made a ham-fisted attempt at the stripe decals and ended up just masking them off
