Title: Mockups of Soviet planes in museum
Post by: Massimo Tessitori on July 10, 2015, 08:47:28 AM
Hi,
I've seen a page of a museum on Urals with full scale mockups of planes

Although they can't be taken as reference, it's a worthy museum all the same.
Regards
Massimo

I seem to remember seeing a La-7 or La-5 mockup in the Nizhniy Novgorod Kremlin. It was standing outside and appeared to be made of fiberglass, but it was pretty detailed and in a very good condition. It seemed like they repaint it fairly regularly. It is probably not particularly accurate and cannot be used as a reference, but it was cool to see anyway and it was an interesting display among the tanks, artillery pieces and also not too far from the remembrance wall and eternal fire. I've been there many times and always found it a worthwhile outing while in Nizhniy Novgorod.
