Hi guys, many thanks for your kindly reply.

@Massimo: yes, unfortunately the kit becoming a bit expansive  Angry Cry, but I will not want to realize a diorama or a shot down plane, just a good model....I hope  Huh Huh....

@Walker: thanks for your reply. In the next days I will to study my main reference drawings to recognize the main difference among LaGG-3 and La-5FN wings.

@Massimo and Walker: do you could suggest my some good reference drawings for La-5FN? At the moment I use the Voronin's drawings.
For the LaGG I use the mig3family drawings Smiley.

Ciao!!

Marco

Hi Marco

Why use the Vector La5 wing?  Seems an expensive source of parts.

have you got an ICM LaGG3?  Just wondering how that compares to the plans.  If the resin wing is now damaged, would it not be easier and cheaper to get a ICM LaGG3 and use those wings?   (You could also compare the kits.)

Another cheap option would possibly be the old Hobbycraft La5FN, I know it's not very accurate, but maybe the wing might be useable  and it can probably be got cheap.  Maybe someone here has one they will never build.
Or a South Front kit as donor kit?

All are plastic so they would be easier to work than resin.   

Or have I misunderstood something about what parts you want to use?

Hope this helps

Hi Troy,
You have not misanderstood,
I use the Vector La-5FN wing because I have the La-5FN Zvezda also and probabily I will never build the Vector one. Concerning the Zvezda kit I suggest to visit this link. There is a very nice building post: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21930&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0

Probabily if I purchase the ICM's LaGG-3 I will never finish the Vector one and in this case will be a very expensive. As you said, plastic is easier to work than resin...
If the ICM's LaGG-3 was released before the Vector's one certainly the affair would be different...

At this time I will try to make the best I can...

Many thanks for your suggestions! Ciao!!!

Marco

Hi Marco,
the drawings published on LaGG-3 family are the same of Paul Sadovnikov, only in lower resolution. I don't know if he has updated them with further versions in the latest year, but the base is the same.

Aaarghhh! I wrong the reply to Walker!! You are right Massimo! For LaGG-3 I use the LaGG-3 family drawings on your website.

@Walker (again): do you could give me a suggestion for La-5FN good drawings, please? Some time ago I found on Scalemodel.ru the follow compressed drawings: la5, la5aiv, la5fn, la5fn_1, la5fnkr.

Thanks if someone could help me.

Ciao!

Hi Marco! I hope Musa will agree with me on this - the best drawings for the La-5 series are the ones from the MBI La-5 monograph; here's a link for the La-5FN:

MBI drawings for La-5 and La-5F:

That's right, John. In these drawings, too, though the error is. Wing a better look at the drawing Sadovnikov.

Hello friends!
many months are passed from my last speech about Lagg-3. However I never stopped to work on it... Unfortunately I have
very few spare time end a lot of commitments...
Here are some photos of the last interventions made, mainly in the cockpit zone...

I was pleasantly surprised to see the GoNza's photoetched instrument panels setting perfectly on my kit...luckily..







































Now I have some doubts about the correct instrument panel to put on the plane. According to the following photo what
is, on your opinion, the correct set for my model. I wish to build the Kostylev' red 35 (probably a 1/3 series,
as reported on Massimo Tessitori profiles) in white distemper, or the white 44 of the 44 IAP, even a 1/3 series probabily...
I am oriented on A+B set but I do not know if this is the correct one...



The main wing is temporarily aside...


Many thanks for your suggestions and comments!
Stay tuned!

Ciao!

Marco

Hi Massimo,
thanks for your reply. At the moment I have not vacuformed a new canopy, I will made it next time, after fuselages joining, if necessary... Wink

About the instrument panel is my opinion, and as GoNzA suggest in his photoetched set, that the most problable combination is A+D, referred to my photos about instrument panels.
Referring to the link you suggest, there are several combination, but I don't know what is the right one, or the most problable... Huh Huh
What do you think about?

Ciao.

Marco

I would like to know if the Russian friends can help me to understand the differences between the two types of instrument panels below:

From prototype I-301 TO:



From another TO (but I don't know what series...):



Many thanks for your help!!
