Hi, interesting.


Excellent.


This looks a Yak.


Uncertain on this.

The middle photo has the shaped nose above the intake typical of the LaGG and unlike the Yak.  The canopy matches that in the LaGG in the link above.

The lowest photo lacks the protruding starter pick-up, which may be a feature of a later batch?  The rivet pattern on the cowling appears to be the same as the a/c above, but the wing root intake may be a hint for someone better informed than me.

I see that the plane of the middle photo has panels on the side of the cockpit, a LaGG-3 should be smooth on that area. The straight shape of the rear of landing gear bays seem of a Yak-1, as the exhaust pipes protruding from individual openings of the cowlings. The outlet of the cooler looks of a Yak too.

The last photo has the wheel door as on Yak 7/9.

The first and second photos show a rectangular windscreen, so if they are LaGG-3s, they can only be series 66. The second photo shows a landing gear well shape unlike the LaGG-3 - the shape visible in the photo, plus the lack of the exhaust shroud that would be present on a typical LaGG-3/66, suggests to me that it's a Yak-1, maybe an early Yak-1B.

The aircraft in the third photo is a Yak-9, perhaps a Yak-7, but not a LaGG - the shape of the wing root intake and the presence of the main landing gear inner door (not present on LaGG-3) are key details.

Oops - you beat me to it, Massimo!  Cheesy

The upper picture is LaGG-3 tip 66.
The middle one is JAK-1, see the shape of of the landing gear bay, the exhausts...
The lower picture is also JAK (7-9) see the injection slot and the landing gear cover.
