With LaGG-3 Case is moving, but very slowly. There are too many confusions with inter-series machines (I decided at the same time to make technical marking arrangements for LaGG-3 La 5. I hope that it will be useful later.If anyone has any desire to help, there are a few questions about unreadable inscriptions .Suddenly there are photos where you can clearly read what is written on the marking.



Later all will be numbered and separately in a larger size made traforets (with translation into English if needed)

And yes, I almost forgot. A few days ago, very little inaccuracies were caught with colleagues. They found, corrected, drank 2 bottles of cognac. We combined useful with pleasant)
As usual, the most recent fixes can be viewed here.

I hope that I do not violate any rules giving a link to a third-party resource, and not close previews here

Great plans, I am glad that You have decided to make a complete study of wartime La series.

One question regarding the La-7 nose:
How did You determine this shape (and lengths "a" and "b")?
I feel nearly all models and other scale drawings get this wrong...

All sizes and angles were taken - partly by factory material, partly by technical design books and aircraft assemblies, partly by successful photographs. The truth of the latter is definitely not determined due to distortion. I already wrote that a familiar professional photographer explained the distortion, depending on the exposure and the focal length of the same subject. And about the mistakenness of other drawings and models ... One wing of what it costs. When I drew a wing with my colleagues I thought that somewhere we were wrong, but everything turned out the opposite.

Kind time of day of the colleague. Almost finished the little manual on La-5. It remains to add a little description and a couple of rare photos. How do you think? Is everything clear and accessible?

Hi Johann,
it seems an excellent work. Thank you for sharing it.
Some more notes would be welcome, as the timeframe and number of production of each variant, if they are known.
I would add a profile of a plane of July 1943, the transition time with the new grey camouflage and the old markings without white outline.

Yes, thank you, Massimo. I plan to give a description of the basic TTX, with reference, at what time was this or that type released, and indicate their number. In terms of color stains ... I realized that they do not go out with me (((But I'll try to do something with them that they look more beautiful.

Hi, I think that there is some error on the sections. The diameter of the first section of the engine doesn't fit with the profile of the cowling. Besides I think that sections should show the protrusions on the cowling, the wing roots, the division between fin and rudder and other details.

Oh oh oh ... Massimo thank you. I missed one cross section ((((Probably worth a little rest.) I fixed it, I'll complete the protrusions and joints, but tomorrow's tomorrow.

I could not lie down until I corrected the cross sections of the fuselage.

Hi Johann,
the work is certainly improved.
In my opinion, there are some things still to do:
the first section should show the air intake above the cowling; the section where the plate covering the exhaust tubes should show both the inside profile and the outside, and the outside should show the protrusion covering the exhaust pipe;
the pipe itself should be represented there, and the drawing (even the upper view) could show that the exhaust flap can be closed.
It would be interesting to show one more section, with the asymmetrical protrusions for the guns over the nose.
Besides I would add the section of the canopy.

Hi Johann,
I see that you have made a page with the evolution of La-5.
I would ask: why the wing of the third profile is painted pink?
Another thing: I think that the change in shape of the tail wheel doors should be remarked with pink too.
Regards
Massimo
