Misos, I would not focus on the last photo. This is a full-size mock-up at the Poklonnaya Gora memorial in Moscow. He has nothing in common with the real La-5 except similarity to the first glance (

Hi Johann,
I see an asymmetry in the frames of the sliding hood. Besides there is a line in the mid of the front window. I suppose that the guide rails of the sliding hood should be visible from above.
Are you sure that there is a traversal line over the bulged panels covering the guns?

I do not even know how it happened, but I fixed it

The front panel of the armored glass was divided in half.

O! Thank you for reminding me, I honestly forgot about them (

this is a rivet line, in the normal drawing it will be seen more clearly

For the future - is it worth mentioning a modification and a series of aircraft?

Hi Johann,
I think that the lower front strut of the windshield should appear thicker, and the photo shows a sort of slot on it.

Yes, it is true. I was a little mistaken in my calculations. I will fix it

While far from completion, but that is already ready. Before the holidays time is very short.

Hi, it looks good.
Is there an overposition between the main landing gear doors and the lower surface of the wing outside the bays?

Hi,
great to have all the family of Lavochkins drawn by the same hand.
I suggest to have a further look to the spinner. In my idea, the curvature between the front part and the rear part changes in sharper way, unlike the La-5.

Hi Johann,
I meant a characteristic shape of the spinner (somewhat common to MiG-3 and Il-2) that is rarely well represented on drawings

this is the discontinuity in radius of the profile of the spinner, that has a nearly conical part with nearly straight profile and ends (in La-7) with a spherical tip.
Now that I see, the spinner is very similar to that of La-5, but I think that this characteristic is less noticeable on La-5, perhaps due to the different ending of the part.
If you draw all versions, I think that twoseaters would be interesting  to complete the collection.
Regards
Massimo
