request: my friends grandpa’s La5FN(?)

Would love a skin of this (in 4K if possible.)

The plane has a yellow 57 and a red spinner.

Also, can anyone help identify what unit he might have fought with?

 

His name was Nikolai Shibanov. He went on to become a general in 1970s.

 

my buddy has a commemorative plane given to him that says 'with gratitude from the pilots and officers from ОБП 13668'

I don't think there is a 4k template for La-5FN.

Let me ask what the actual story is with that award...

Sure, go for it! Hunch is that might have been an earlier LA5fn he flew.
The absence of a fuse star and the yellow bort number looks too specific to be some generic model.

Who would take the time to paint the number and red flap details and not go ahead and get the rest of the plane right, when giving a gift to soviet general in 1975 to commemorate his service?
