My fianc?e Aksana says me this translation:
Left panel: early instruments panel (not over 6th series)
Right panel: instruments panel following series.

I hope this is useful for you.

Regards.

Marco

Thanks, Marco, and please give my thanks to Aksana, too!

I have the Extratech photoetch EX72099 set for the LaGG-3 series 66 (as it's identified on the package, for the Dakoplast kit) and I was considering using the instrument panel, and just ignoring the differences between the late and early panels. However, looking at it now that I understand the difference, I realized that the Extratech panel is the early one, and therefore not correct for a series 66:

This will make building a series 1 LaGG-3 easier - out of 16 (yes, sixteen!!!) options, the Authentic decal sheet has 4 series 1 aircraft on it!  Shocked

By the way, for a more accurate late instrument panel, you would need the Part p/e set, S72070:

Hi John,
my impression is that second sheet is by much more complete, but I wonder if many details can reasonably be replaced by a thin sheet of metal.

Hi Massimo! You're right - unfortunately, photoetched brass is kind of like "bling" (cheap jewellery) for modelbuilders - it's shiney and pretty-looking but sometimes not very practical. Some detail parts, like landing gear doors, can be quite useful, but other parts, like throttle controls or landing gear retraction linkages, are either too small for the average builder to use, or unrealistic because they are only two-dimensional, not three-dimensional. The amount of work building up these parts with white glue or some other material to give them more thickness is probably no less trouble than making the parts from scratch. Sometimes it seems that the person designing the parts is not very familiar with the aircraft the parts are designed for - I keep thinking that some things which would be welcome and would be easy to use are never included. Examples of this are wing slats on the La-5 and late LaGG-3, and the metal panels behind the exhaust outlets on the early LaGG-3.

(It's possible to make these slats and panels from thick decal film (if you can find any) or from the self-adhesive aluminum (not silver fabric) tape used on heating system ductwork - this interesting method is very often seen on Scalemodels.ru, but so far it doesn't seem to have caught on anywhere else.)

I found this through checking the Scalemodels.ru forum; the topic is painting procedures related to the LaGG-3:

(Hmm - that turned out rather strangely! I'm glad all I had to do was "copy and paste" that URL, and not type the whole thing! Wink )

One thing I keep meaning to mention - sometimes I think what may cause confusion is the difference between
"interior colour" and "cockpit colour". To me, interior colour can mean the paint used to finish all of the inner surfaces of the aircraft, possibly but not necessarily including the cockpit, while cockpit colour is a second colour used to finish the cockpit only. I hope this makes sense! People (including me) may assume that if A-14 is identified as the interior colour, it automatically means the same as cockpit colour, and I'm not sure that this is really true.

Hi John,
this page is interesting. It looks an adaptation of the article of Orlov to LaGG-3. The translation is fairly good, apart for some unclear point. Thank you for posting. Do you know who is the author?

Here's the URL for the original, in Russian:

No indication of the author, though.

Happy Easter to you, too, Marco!

It's Aviakolektsiya No 5 from 2005 - Istrebitel LaGG-3.  Author of the main text is N. Yakubovich, author of the section about colours and markings is M. Orlov.
