Military Aircraft Vol. 95: Lavochkin La250 Anakonda

Lavochkin La 250 Anakonda
US$ 40,00 plus shipping
Injected plastic model with waterslide decals.
This is Amodel's La250 in 1/72 scale. This is another rare Soviet bird released by Amodel, a manufacturer that has a huge line of unusual subjects. The kits are of a short run kind, with flash and alignment problems. The manufacturer recommends the kits only to experienced modelers, but i must say that you need more patience then experience. Fit was difficult in most areas, surface is rough and panel lines were a little bit too soft, but if you want a La250, this is the only game in town and don't expect a Tamiya or Hasegawa release on this subject anytime soon. The model was built out of the box and painted with Tamiya acrylics. I re-scribed the hole kit after assembly so the panel lines would have a more constant aspect. Decals are ok, a bit too matt once displayed on the kit, but react well to setting solutions. It was a pleasure to get this kit done, and i hope you like it. There are more coming!
