1/72 Eduard L-39 Albatros

Gallery Article by Pierre Christian Baudru on Oct 21 2009

 

The model is very good, but I didnít like the wing / fuselage fit and I had to work on this area to have a good result.

Many PE pre-painted parts are provided and help a lot to build the cockpit but in my box (dual combo) some of these parts were present but not indicated on the build instructions.  And also some parts that are indicated on the build instructions were not present on the PE detail set.

I started this build on 22-06-2009 and finished on 27-09-2009.

I used PCB MODELS detail set for the avionic bay and I think that these resin parts are easy to use and you have at the end a great result.

I used Humbrol to paint this model:

- H-71 SAND / H-168 HEMP / H-117 GREEN / H-129 GREY / H-128 COCKPIT GREY

Decals are from Eduard and are very good too.

I think this model is easy to build !
