Karaya 1/48 Martinsyde F.4 Buzzard VVS RKKA

Model fresh catch-ended the other day. Not a good resin but the model performed very well. The assembly passed without incident, the only thing – I had to cut the front wing. Markings painted through stencils.
And a little bit of history – the party martinsaydov was purchased in England in 1922. In those years the fleet was in terrible condition, and these fighters were be most welcome. Aircraft were used until the end of the 20s, along with the Fokker D-7, and the Nieuport.
