  1. Nicely built & finished Milan. The Soviets were evidently big on putting inspirational thoughts (propaganda?) on their aircraft. Do you know the English translation on this one?

    • Thanks Al! This one particular means Valery Chkalov Squadron. He was a Russian aircraft test pilot and a Hero of the Soviet Union. He died before WW2 in a plane crash while piloting a prototype of the Polikarpov I-180 fighter.

  2. Superb rendition of a Russian classic! Well done. Love your finish on this one.

  3. Great build. Don't see enough VVS types!

  4. Very nicely finished and photographed, Milan. Excellent build.

  5. Wonderful!

    Best regards, Vlad

  6. Lavochkin cool! The model has turned - not tear his eyes!

  7. Ooh yeah looking good. Really good. Gotta get around to mine. I have an Zvezda La5 and FN, thinking about kitbashing an La5F. Hate to waste a kit.

  8. Really nice Milan, great model well photographed

  9. Well done, a very nice kit perfect photographed ! And full of details, like
    the control pins on the upper wings for the undecarriage !
    To hear the kit is great, is good news, because i have the "FN" in my stash
    There are a lot of parts in the fuselage.

  10. It looks great, Milan, glad to hear you liked the kit so much.

  12. Milan,
    You did an excellent job on this. I really like what you have done here.

  13. Excellent job, well photographed. A very nice model, i like the tones you've choosen. I see that you were farther with the metallic rasping (i mean peeling painting, i don't know the good word in english). I begin with this technique, I do not dare too much.
