Pavla V 48-13: Lavochkin LA-5 Canopy




Scott Van Aken


For the Zvezda 1/48 kit

More 1/48 canopy sets from Pavla. This set is for the Zvezda 1/48 Lavochkin LA-5. This set is a bit different from the LA-5FN set in that the LA-5 had a 'razorback' rear fuselage. In this regard, there are a pair of the smaller rear windows included in this set and in fact, the shape of the windscreen looks to be different from the later version as well. Like all their new canopy sets, this one is molded in sections to allow the canopy to be displayed open. As with their other clear bits sets this one is nicely done with well defined frame lines. It is also in pretty thick vac plastic so will be much easier to attach to your kit.
