Title: Lavochkin La-7 Reno Racer
Post by: TimJ on May 28, 2017, 07:52:48 am
When I saw this KP La-7 at Cosford for 99p with no decals my first thought was 'Reno racer' as I'd already built a couple last year.

I've got a few ideas for colour schemes, just need to decide which one to go with.

Erm, could some of our Brit members contact Kit, please. Looks like someone hijacked his account and is using it to post silly things. Because surely he wouldn't prop somehing that will result in - perish the thought - CLIPPED wings!  :o

Not to worry gents, Kit while having a VERY broad mind, can still appreciate the smaller things in life.

I even built such a Reno racer with clipped wings not so long ago.  ;D

And another one many years ago too.  ;D

Anyway, where do you think all the bits for my normal extended wings come from?  ;)

99p?  Bargain.  It never fails to amaze me how a simple thing like no decals renders a kit almost worthless in the eyes of some assemblers.  Still, our gain.

Yeah, it's not as if there aren't a plethora of AM markings out there... ah well, as you said, Whiffworld's gain.

This is an Yak-11 with a similar appearance and it's a real racer. La-7 will look even more vicious. With a bright red paint maybe... :rolleyes:
