Following my friend Dennis’s lead, I’m working on shrinking the stash with monthly “no-frills” builds: out of the box, no major mods, minimal weathering, etc. My May “NFB” is this KoPro 1/72 Avia CS-199. Not a lot of detail in the interior, which is okay because the canopy is not crystal clear but, the fit was very good; I needed very little putty on this one. The decals were very old and brittle but, I got them on. All-in-all I really enjoyed this build and think it looks pretty cool, especially from about 2-3 feet.
