LaGG-3 in winter colors (Roden 1/72)
March 4, 2017 in Aviation
Winter LaGG-3 series 35 in 1/72 scale. Original kit by Toko, produced by Roden nowadays. This is an old kit back from the late 90s. The kit quality is far, far from good – it took me two months to get it done. Completely not suitable as a kit for a stress-less weekend build.
I had some PE parts for LaGG-3 but that parts were for another kit of another manufacturer, so I’ve used only some of them (and mostly for the interior), like wheel bay doors.
Some parts were made from scratch, like all radiator air exit flaps – original parts were too thick.
The model was painted mostly with AKAN and Vallejo paints. Winter temporary white was made using MIG Washable White paint, which was designed exactly for creating such effects. All other weathering was made mostly with Vallejo washes and pigments with a small addition of oils.
Painting scheme represents an aircraft of the soviet ace captain S. Lvov during the winter of 1943. He was fighting on a Baltic Sea.
