TIA, regards.

Hi,
I think A-14 bays, legs and inside of the doors and emerald green wheel hubs.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

...emerald green wheel hubs...
Hi Massimo,
I do not think so. It was green at MiGs, bombers and some others. But when I built all my WWII Lavochkins and Yaks kits and checked references I always found only A-14 wheel hubs for them.

Hi Misos,
I don't know. I can't find pieces of wheels of La-5.ì, and preserved La-7s are reworked and unconsistent. I think to remember to have seen something, but I can't find it. Ithink that both possibilities exist, bw photos don't seem to show always the same thing.

Was it this?

There was supposed to be a Part 2, but I don't think it ever appeared.

Hi John,
no, I thought to have seen some trace of blue-green on the wheel of a photo of a wreck or on some photo of a museum La-7, but I could be wrong. I can't find it so it could be wrong.
