Ok guys, next project. Or better a reboot. I had gotten this as a bd present and started this one last year.

Due to stress at work and a training and uncertainity I could do the mottling scheme I put it aside. Having finished my La-5 I now return to this but not without a challenge. Due to the home decoration I got no workspace AND most of my paints and stuff is behind a heap of other stuff in the garage. So I can just cut, clean and glue abit. This makes that I try to clean and assemble as much as possible. And cleaning I do need to this. My first verdict is that it is not a perfect model but this package of a big bag of plastic and lots of nice detail for 35,- is a steal.The box with sub assemblies and parts fill quickly.

Well there are a view weird attachment points on the engine part. Points?? Hmm more strips, will have to sand down this abit. There were four of these strips on both engine caps .

The lower hull with lower wings. I needed to help this a bit to get the undercarriage part in place. Dry fitting with the hull will show if I can proceed.

I can only build with good weather in the gardin till 5pm. So pray with me for good weather next weekend!

Hi Lars looking forward to this build! I've got the old old Revell/Monogram kit of this aircraft to build at some point. So I look forward to seeing you build this to give me some much needed inspiration to build mine. Don't sweat the mottle camo it's easier than it looks!

This will be an interesting build. Please tell us about the kit. Is it a newly tooled one, or the old one out of the seventies?

This is the "new" one, "newly" tooled in 1/32 scale, although it's been out now for nearly two years since Late 2016. I have the kit and it's as nice as the Trumpeter 1/32 offering, maybe better in some ways and at a lower cost too. There are a couple of fit issues, but nothing that can't be overcome with some basic modeling skill. Aeroscale review is here:

Hi Mate, Be following this one with interest. I got mine at my local toy store because they do lay away (pay a little off each week) A little plug for Kerrison's toys in Norwich!.
I always think fore-warned is fore-armed when it comes to building kits so any problems with your build will let me know of future bumps in the road.
