    Your model has several mistakes for accurate Laag-3, 35 series.

    1. Missing slats
    2. Horizontal stabilizers are with modified hinges and wider trimmers
    3. Vertical rudder is angled hinging line
    4. No side protection plates behind the exhaust stacks
    5. Long radio mast

    Nice try but ....

    Hmm. Your observations might well be correct, but don't you think that, for your first post on this forum, your response is rather pointed, blunt and not very diplomatic?

    You must have missed Manners Class in school. I would urge you to take a different tenor for your second post on this forum.

    That's true these mantioned features are typical for Lagg-3s of 35 series. While I can agree with these first four points here you have to know that the LG-3 was a captured Lagg-3 serial 3521357 "White 57", probably belonged to 524 IAP ( the 1st picture ) . The pilot of the kite made a forced landing in a meadow at Ala Sedorska, near Nurmoila on September 14, 1942. She was restored and became LG-3 in Finnish service, and was assigned to LeLv 32. This unit was based based at Nurmoila on the Olonets isthmus. Judging by the camo scheme , Boroda Rus wanted to show its intermediate configuration from summer 1944 to April 1945 ( 2nd and 3rd picture ). During the summer of 1944 the LG-3 was slightly modified. The antenna mast was shortened, the tail wheel was made fixed and its doors were locked in closed position, this could have been done because of the unreliability of the mechanism, the doors were slightly cutten to fit the leg, the upper part of the yellow band on the nose was repainted olive green for reducing its evidence from above.

    Also I agree with Airframes' and Matt308's opinions posted above.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I dunno much about the LaGG-3 series of aircraft, so I can't comment on the things pointed out really , but in terms of modelling skills she looks bloody great!
