Zvezda LAGG-3 model 1/144

It is becoming difficult to keep up with Zvezda (it might just be that I didn't know of them until just recently) but here is the LAGG-3. This is another early period model and a sharp looking kit it is. The lines seem to capture the shape of the original very well and the light details are well done, the kit is provided with both retracted and extended landing gear and a set of adequate (if uninspired) decals. As always click on the picture to expand it.

Please don't take my lack of enthusiasm for the decals to mean that they are not of good quality, they are this and well made. I simply mean to say that I am willing to bet there were some interesting paint jobs applied to Russain aircraft during the war, why not include one or two versions.

Another highly recommended kit.
