So here it is, all finished in a bit over 80 hours. Hobbycraft’s 1/48 La-5FN built OOB. I did modify a few parts with files or filler here and there, but nothing beyond that. I also used the kit decals, which surprisingly worked very well.
Now it’s all packaged up for travel to my great nephew and delivery to him over the weekend
Don't know when the picture of the Russians was taken. But, if it was long enough ago, and they were Soviets, they probably earned most of them. The Soviets loved to hand out medals, but during the Great Patriotic War, the Russians who had only a few medals were often the ones who didn't make it.
