1/18 Lavochkin La-5 & Polikarpov I-16 *New Pics*

The USSR has been excluded from the 1/18 world for to long!

Here we can see both of the bodies going into their final stage. There are other parts mixed in from other kits to save on time/space/money. Below you can see the molds I am now getting from hydrospan.

I am not taking orders on these yet but know that they will be right behind the Lippish.



Then onto some Luftwaffe 1946 stuff with the Natter and Triebflügel

When you cast Hydrospan sometimes the mold dosent want to give it up and rips it. No big deal, it will shrink and come out within a day. That part is the center section of the triebflügel.

I have been sanding away on the Lippish master but went out to my tank a few days ago and found my La-5 and 1-16 at full size! So I took a few pics for all of you to see how cool it will be! My hope is that after the Lippish other projects like these will be shortly behind!
