AML 1/72 Soviet Aces in Lavochkin La-5Fs
By Matt BittnerFirst Look on the AML 1/72 La-5F when it was first released, I won't go into any details of the kit. Instead I'll point out what comes in the box along with the markings supplied.
The following pilots are provided on the excellent decal sheet:
- Capt Ivan Nikitovich Kozhedub's "White 14" from the 40 IAP, May 1944
- Capt Kyril Alexeyevich Yevstigneyev's "White 14" from the 178 GIAP, Sep. 1944 - Feb. 1945
- F/O Ivan Nikitovich Sytov's "White 18" from the 5 GIAP
- S/Ldr Pet Nikiforovich Belyasnik's "White 40" from the 126 IAP PVO
- Ltn. Col. Leonid Alimovich Galchenko from the 324 IAP, Summer 1944
- Ltn. Col. Leonid Alimovich Galchenko's same machine, but from Moscow's air parade above "Red Square" on June 24, 1945
Thank you to UMM-USA for the review model.
