La-7 modelling hints

To Whom it concerns, in 2006 I assembled a fairly accurate minature 1/72nd scale La-7 by combining the best parts of a Novo kit from 1992 with the best parts of a KP kit from the 1980's.The Novo fuselage and wings was used with the complete front cowling ,spinner, and propeller from KP thinned down slightly. At the back the rudder was replaced with the KP and the tailplanes were the KP after widening the slots. The undercarriage legs were KP with the Novo wheels and KP doors. Decals were a mix of KP and Hobbyboss leftovers from their Yak3.It looked quite good and is an Eduard alternative. Also the inaccurate KP mainwheels were excellent Revell 1/72nd Fiat CR42 replacements in place of the midget originals with a modified Hasegawa Me109G propeller to this model as well. Lastly for anyone building the almost perfect Airfix 1/72nd Spitfire Mk.1 ,the rudder is crap and a perfect replacement is an unwanted Frog/Novo Spitfire Mk.8/9 narrow chord item to enchance it totally.
