Hi Oleg, Smiley
I fear that the operative history of Yak-3 VK-107 will remain a mistery. Cry

It will be only the least of all mysteries of GPW...

Hi, Smiley
I've added two pages on LaGG-3s with skis. Please, have a look and let me know comments.

Hi Massimo,

Thanks for update!
Concerning LaGG-3 "Gor'kovskiy pioner" the fourth line in a donative inscription is "vozdushnikh sil RKKA", last two lines probably "from ******* ". Unfortunately I could not find out the full text of an inscription. I would like to place this  variant on decals for next LaGG-3 kit from Vector.

Hi Sergey, Smiley
thank you for your suggestion.
Unfortunately we can't see if there is any number on the fuselage.
Have you any contact with the authors of the Savaslejka photo file?

Hi Massimo,

Nice details of the LaGG with skis.  Thank you very much.  I appreciate the details of the retraction method.  A couple of the photos seem to suggest that the wheel well was covered over when the skis were used.  Is this a modification for some of the subjects or just an optical illusion.  Two that I noticed are the photo of the crashed LaGG showing the bottom of the ski and the model that you called a strange combination.  Just curious.

Also, are you aware of any kit or aftermarket package that includes skis of this type?

I really enjoyed the LaGG-3s on skis feature - thanks, Massimo. Regarding Clare's question, the Amodel 1/72 Yak-1 includes skis which look very similar (as I recall) to thos shown in the LaGG-3 photos. I hope this helps!

Hi, Smiley
for what I recall, the skis of yak-1 Amodel were more rectangular. However, it could be a starting point.
I am in contact with a correspondant that is tracing scale drawings of LaGG-3 with ski. I think that this could help.

Hi, Smiley
I've updated the MiG-3 page with photos and detailed descriptions of MiG-3s of Pascal Divay (from Emhar) and Honza Jezl (from Hobby Boss, you already know it). Please, have a look and let me know if it's all well.

Hi, Smiley
should anyone be interested on Il-10, there is an excellent article on his Czech version B-33 on Air Magazine n.35 and 36.
Unfortunately, nothing useful to understand the camouflage utilized in GPW.
Massimo

Hi, Smiley
I'm uploading a small research on the camouflage of Il-10s during the GPW.
Please, let me know any suggestion or further images on this topic.

Hi, Smiley
I've added photos of my model of I-153. It's not exceptional, but it has an interesting camo and some considerations on the kit of Heller.

Thank you Marcin, I've received it. It's excellent. I think that I'll replace the one already posted with the profile.
