AML La-5 with "Valeriy Chkalov Squadron" donation aircraft markings. A pig of a kit - I hope the AZ/KP La-5 series happens soon. AML includes a vac canopy (plus a spare) which is inaccurate in shape; I discovered that the injected canopy from the VES/Cooperativa/Eastern Express/Maquette La-5 (or "LaG-5") is much more accurate and fits the AML fuselage with very little reshaping, so I used that instead.

Hi John,
thank you for this review.  To tell the truth, I am glad to have not bought this kit.
Regards
Massimo
