Hi Musa, Smiley
those images are excellent, but represent the LaGG-3 M-82, that is the prototype, that had a slightly different cowling. To obtain a demonstration about late type La-5FN, we have to find images of that type with the hinge on the sides and see if it's curved or not when sealed by coils.
Regards
Massimo

Superb. Have a question with canopy, and only small discrepancies with the stabilizer.

Thank you all.
Musa ,Zvezda La-5FN 1/72 is not scaled down 1/48?

Is there any aftermarket for Zvezda FN 1/48 ?
Are you planing to release new correct canopy?

It would be wonderful if the Zvezda 1/72 La-5FN was a scaled-down version of the 1/48 kit, but I'm afraid it's not. The 1/72 La-5FN is a very old kit that was first released about 25 years ago by Italeri. If you want a 1/72 La-5FN, the KP/Kopro kit (also reboxed by Mastercraft and Amodel) is still your best bet!

Regarding aftermarket for the 1/48 La-5FN kit, Vector has a complete cockpit set in resin, plus some other stuff - go here and scroll down a bit:
http://www.neomega-resin.com/vector/cockpits.htm

There was a vacuformed canopy available from Falcon/True Details, but I think it was intended for the Hobbycraft 1/48 La-5FN/La-7, and I have no idea if it was better or worse than the kit canopy - probably worse, but I'm only guessing now!

Musa can probably add some more items to your shopping list! Wink

No. He was already doing the "Vector".
