Sweet looking model. How is the kit? I’ve built 2 109s from Zvezda (the F and the G versions) and found them great kits although a bit over engineered in some areas. And what’s the matter with the canopy?

Canopy has a mottled fogging from the glue vapours I think. I use white these days
The kit is over engineered if you don’t want the hood open but fit was ok. I did this last year and had a run on Lavochkin and other Russian WW2 kits. I’ll post more soon!

For as complicated as it looks, it’s actually very easy to assemble, having done three with two still hanging around. It’s a kit I really like.

This is a cool looking model…………. I think it looks great as is, and like Pedro mentioned, the canopy doesn’t look bad either. I have done worse………. much worse.
How did it go together as far as the build ?? The cockpit details look to be really nice right out of the box. I have two of them in the stash. Maybe someday they will hit the bench………..
Decent build from the box. MRP paints were great. I did a bit of acrylic paint ‘weathering ‘ on the nose and wings which I sanded back to give a worn look….a la Bera Karoly from Hungary

Nicely done – black-basing looks well executed and some nice detail on the insulators.
Very nice work David. I’ve done three of these kits with two (an La-5 and a 5FN) still awaiting their day on the workbench. You’ve done a super job with this one.

Nice work on this David. I did one of these last year with the winter white distemper scheme. I like you found the kit to be somewhat over engineered, but it built without too much difficulty.

I’ve got a winter Mig-3 somewhere. I’ll dig it out.
