Lavochkin La-5 1/72

October 25, 2016 · in Aviation · · 13 · 2.8K

Set models Prop & Jet drew his preparedness and beauty.

Now I can add your opinion about the pros and cons of the set:
Good that:
Wing given one piece, greatly simplifies the life of the modeler,
Beautiful study of surface texture (jointing, riveting, sag)
Small details are clear
The complete absence of bubbles that surprising to me on the details of the resin.

The main objective of the modeller - not to spoil the manufacturer laid down in the model merits. His hands put minimal.
