p.s. ehmmm...someone could give me informations about gunsight, as drawings, pictures or something 'else? Thanks!

Hi Marco! Here's a page with photos of Russian gunsights:
http://sv06.wadax.ne.jp/~gunsight-jp/b/english/data/sight-e-s.htm

One of the images from the German test report which GoNzA posted shows the sight to be a PBP-1, although PBP-1A is also possible according to Gunston's Osprey Encyclopedia of Russian Aircraft. The page which I linked above says "PBP-1?", which doesn't help much. Also note that the gunsight is visible in side view in one of the photos I posted yesterday. I hope this helps!

Look here, also:

Hi guys, thanks for your reply!
@John: thanks for links. They are very useful. I have some pictures also. I hoped to find some drawings or pictures with several views about PBP-1.... Undecided

@Michel: My too tought the Vector kit was a good kit but I was misled by several reviews about the kit. The authors descibed it as the ultimate kit for LaGG-3 but when it arrived to me and I opened the box I had a very bad surprise.... and you think I have also the La-5FN...how much money thrown away!!!! However then I comforted myself buing the beautiful La-5FN by Zvezda...

See you soon with new updates!
Ciao

Hi Michel, thanks for your comment. I tought in fact to realize a resin set from my scratch but surely the time to complete the kit wuold greately increase. Much better to purchase a good kit of LaGG-3, like the ICM one....NOT VECTOR OF COURSE!!! Wink Wink.

Ciao!

Marco,

maybe that you keep that in mind when building another cockpit from scratch.
I hope that I can see the Lagg someday for real. Cheesy

Hi Marco,
I am really astonished for all this well-made scratchbuilding work.
A vacuform machine... you could really make some improving set to sell, maybe vaku canopies for types where they're poorly reproduced.

Hi Massimo, hi Michel,
maybe the next time I could try to make a resin copy of my scratchbulding...and maybe could be the MiG-3 Alanger... Roll Eyes

For vacu canopies I will make surely the LaGG-3 one  Wink. Unfortunately I have not enough spare time to make a complete improving set. LaGG-3 was started a long time ago... Undecided
If some members wishes (...not for hundred of pieces...) I could send a copy of that I use on my LaGG: seat, internal and external water cooler duct (the external one is planned but not realized yet) and canopies. Costs for material and shipping rates only.
Keep in mind that these parts are for a scratchbuilded LaGG-3 and the measures may be incorrect for other kit...
The vacuforming machines is builded and selled by an Italian retired craftsman...

Ciao.

Incredible work there, Marco!  It should look brilliant once it's all painted!

Hello guys,
some little step on LaGG. I need your help to clarify a doubt on bulkhead n?5. I realized the rear panel with ortogonal junction to bulkhead 5 but I am not sure of this. Do you think possible the course was angled like I mark in red on the third pictures?
Many thanks for your help, suggestions & comments.
Ciao.

Marco

Hi Marco,
I don't think it was much angled, but the structure looks too sophisticated for my guess. I suppose they have simply applied two rectangles of plywood with screws inside the windows.

Hi Massimo,
thanks for your reply. For me too is hard to determine the main correct course for those panels... Unfortunately there is not  upper cutaways drawings to determine this; I examined a lot of pictures but I was unable to determine correctly the panel course... In the kit the relative piece has the angled panels... But the kit is not one of the most correct... Wink.
Without of more accurate informations I will leave the panels as they are...
I hope some other members could have good informations about this area...
Ciao!

Marco
