Hi,
a new update:
http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/la5/la5/piercedheart/piercedheart..html



At the end, La-5s are less boring of what I thought.

Regards
Massimo

I do to. I already have two built-up 'razorback' La-5s, but I might have to add a third one with this paint scheme.

Two kits of Zvezda you mean, or 1/72?

Massimo, they were two 1/72nd scale kits (I only do 1/72nd scale now). They are the same kit (same plastic), but one was under the Cooperativa brand, with PE parts, and the other was in an Eastern Express box, without the PE parts. A nice kit, with only the cowling giving me a bit of a problem with the fit. One was done as that famous version with the big shark mouth on it, whilst the other was done as one of the 'Valeriy Chkalov' La-5s. I've developed quite a liking for the razorback La-5s - I might just do another, especially if I do it as this very interesting La-5 you've drawn. Regarding the silver in place of the white for winter camouflage, weren't there some P-39s painted with this?

Best Regards,

Jason

Hi Jason,
I have one Cooperativa one left half built some years ago. The plastic was badly brittle, but it shouldn't be difficult to restart and complete it.  I have a Zvezda too, one day I'll start to build some 48s.

Interesting that you mention about the brittle plastic, Massimo - the plastic on my Cooperativa kit was brittle also. It was done in a brittle brown plastic, the type that MPM used to use (I believe MPM and Cooperativa were related in some way). I don't remember the Eastern Express kit having brittle plastic, and I built that relatively recently - in the past five years or so. The Cooperativa 'shark-mouth' was built over twenty years ago.

Best Regards,

Jason

I made the Coopertiva one a long time ago, bought in late 1993 made in 1944.  I think perhaps an early release, but it was in a green plastic and not particularly brittle.

Hi Massimo,
If you continue to add such interesting profiles, I will be obliged to buy new kits  Wink
 For sure, I will make this one and  the "early" Baumancy
La 5 1/72, either Cooperativa/Eastern express or AML are not easy to find.
Best regards

Hi Bernard,
I have still some profiles, but not so particularly interesting. All depends on the available photos, and unusually painted La-5s are.... unusual.

Be patient for a little longer - the new La-5 and La-5F kits from KP are finally supposed to be released late this year.

That's nice to hear, John. I've been waiting for those for quite some time. That, and their La-7. Looks like I'll have some more kits to add to my ever-growing set of Lavochkin fighter kits.

Hi,
another update.

http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/la5/la5/91/91.html



This is a transition plane of summer 1943, with the old camo, stars and back, but new engine M-82F and later fonts of the number.

Regards
Massimo
