Another Russian fighter finished- 1/48 Zvezda La-5

This is the 1/48 Zvezda La-5. It’s the first Zvezda kit I’ve built, and I’m pretty impressed with it. It has a very detailed interior, and the exterior detailing is nice too. Decals are from Print Scale, Lavochkin La-5, Pt. I (#48-018). The decals worked very well. They have some very minor registration issues in places, but I’ll use them again. The markings are for a Spanish pilot who flew for the VVS. I thought it was interesting to see the slogan on the side in Spanish rather than Russian. (Although it was pointed out to me that the slogan is not correct Spanish… oh well…) Paints are Akan.

The fit of the kit is pretty good, though it is a bit fiddly in places. But just test fit and there aren’t any problems.
