The Lavochkin La-5 and La-5FN were amongst the best Russian fighters of WW2 and easily capable of holding its own against the German Bf109 and Fw190. Development started with the failure of the LaGG-3. Lavochkin modified the LaGG-3 with a Shvetsov radial engine and cured it of its worst faults. The result was the Lavochkin La-5, which proved to be one of the first Russian fighters capable of taking on the Germans. The La-5FN was the ultimate version of the La-5 and featured a more powerful fuel injected engine. Eventually the aircraft was developed even further into the superb La-7. 
This is KPM's excellent new tool La-5 kit and it is highly detailed with engraved panel lines, matching the more established mainstream manufacturers.  It comes with markings for 3 different Russian aircraft.
