Hi all,
I've uploaded two pages with profiles and photos of two interesting La-5s.
One is a rare example of an early production La-5 with operative markings:

the other one is a standard La-5, but with very interesting markings:

Hi Massimo, La-5 variant. At one time, i made profile on the plane 23 Leutinant Patoka, 240 IAP. With colleagues discussed and corrected. If you allow, a few comments? ..
I marked in orange those places that can be corrected.
Unfortunately, the working version of my vision is motivated, due to the lack of a conclusive version at hand.

Hi,
you are right, the camouflage has to be corrected.
It is visible on this photo too.

Seems that the black band has to be fully separed from the wing area by a green one arriving down to the blue area.
I see that some minor corrections are needed on the mid and rear fuselage too.
Could you send an intact version of the photo, please? It is new for me.
Regards
Massimo

Hi,
I've done it.

There is some small difference between the plane of your photo and n.24.

And still, this is purely my personal opinion, but if you look at the "hero's star" and the inscription - it seems to me that the inscription "Baumantsy" has yellow color, and the inscription "To Hero Lukyanov" is mixed yellow and red paint ...

Hi,
do you need an higher resolution version? It is not a perfect work though.
I am wondering if the look can be improved by expanding the photo on the vertical axis. I've the impression that it is somehow slim.

Hi,
I've extended the image on the vertical axis and I've updated it on the site, but seems that  the forum still shows tho old one. I think that there is some problem with cache memory. I often had to modify the names of the images to see them updated.
The image is blurried, there is no adventage to redo the work with an higher resolution. Anyway I have an higher resolution version if you need, but there is no advantage in it.
If you want to show the photo, please do, just credit it as usual.
Regards
Massimo

Hi all,
I've added a profile of a La-5 n.26

http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/la5/la5/grey26/grey26.html



The profile was obtained from this photo.



I don't know the unit or the place; I can guess that it was of the 4 GIAP KBF in winter 1943/44, somewhere not too far from Leningrad.

Regards
Massimo
