  1. 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?

  2. 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………..


  3. Nicely done – black-basing looks well executed and some nice detail on the insulators.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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