Hi everyone,

Here's the second model I managed to finish during the work holidays.
Its Zvezda 109 G-6, released late last year, and I found it to be a very good model, even though it needs a careful reading of the instructions to get the engine wall and cockpit in its exact place otherwise you will find the engine millimeters out of place and only spot this when you are closing the fuselage.
Apart from this heads-up, the kit is a little gem, packed with a load of options, including the open engine, bombs, drop tanks and wing cannons. Both type of canopies are included, as are the rudder (tall and small).

I painted it using MRP paints, weathered with oils and painted the main insignias. Decals used are not from the kit, I used some from the stash to depict a lesser know ace from JG.1, Oblt. Klopper KIA with 94 victories.
