Letov S-231 1:72 KP – spanish civil war
This ismy small scale Letov S-231 built from an old KP. I have some deep memories about KP kits because then practically these manufactirers (KP, SMER, Novo, WEB Plasticart and ZTS) meant modeling to us (behind the old “iron curtain” before the ’90s). Especially KP which could be found practically everywhere. This kit is from those times, I found in my stash in a plastic bag with old decals and no istructions :).I remember the frustrations as a child tried to build this kit (oh, those wing struts…!). This time I was curious what can I do with this old c**p… sorry old craft. I reworked the surfaces, made a new engine and something that resembles better to a cockpit,guns and so on. The original plane had an interesting carreer in spain and I like the era as modeling subject. I fashioned a small vignette to add some interest to the plane, added a volunteer guardian and an obviously red simpathizer women with her dog. Hope You like it 🙂
