His kits build up very nicely.  Fit is very good.  I've built the MiG-9 and have an Su-7 mostly done.

I have a few others.  Great kits for sure.

 

Well after your positive comment and Ray's review - I decided to go ahead and purchase one... I look forward to seeing it in person...

The kit arrived today and is very nice looking... I was also very pleasantly surprised that it arrived in only 17 days from ordering from the Ukraine to delivery in Florida... Thank you for the awesome service !!!

Thank you for your purchase, feedback and support.
I am sincerely glad that you have the model. Delivery time is one of the most uncontrollable points of the transaction, especially during the 11.11-Black Friday - Christmas holidays. But in my experience there is an order sent on Friday evening from Ukraine and received in the USA on Monday - and this is by regular state mail Ukrposhta and USPS.))). Now, during a pandemic, the delivery time has become a very difficult moment. Some parcels sent by me to Poland and Germany take 2 or more months! Poland directly borders on Ukraine)). As far as I understand, the main delays at present are customs  and checks.

It wouldn't be too bad; it only has about 75 parts. The only challenges would be the halved tires (always a pain) and the vac canopy, but they give you two just in case. 

If you like it, I would also recommend the Silver Wings Yak-9 which has many more tiny parts, but is well done and has a resin clear canopy (and one piece wheels!).

PS: I would also add some pins in the wing to fuselage joint on the La-9 kit for extra strength.

I can take some photos - that would be no problem or if you scroll up to comment from LSP Ray - he posted a review of the kit with some great photos - his review is what made my decision to purchase the kit...

Thanks Ray, after thinking long and hard I used some funds from sold off models to order a Silver Wings Yak-9. I've thought long and hard between the two and both kits seem to have their strengths and weaknesses, but eventually the Yak-9 with set-back cockpit looks just a hair better than the La-9 or 11. (sorry, Upor)
