S!

 

 So a La-7 skin for the La-5?

 

 did i made an historical bug ? sorry I Though it was a La-5.

If not,  it looks closed to a la-5. should be interresting how you can see difference between la-5 and la-7 with the pic up ? 

Do you mind teach us a bit please. only because of that skin ?

 

oh maybe i see: is it this airflow system  just under the flaps ? Oh yes : and the canopy is not the same at the back

 

I apologize.

The easiest way to tell apart is the air intake on the 5 is on top of the cowl and on the 7 it's on the bottom of the fuselage under the cockpit and the cooler under side at the leading edge is removed on the La-7. In your photo above it looks like it is there but those are actually the center section gear doors

I believe the La-7 upgraded to just a metal spar. It wasn't till the La-9 that it became an all metal aircraft and with the improved wing they got rid of the leading edge slats.

I wish I could give due credit for the line drawings but I just got them off the web and can't find any reference to the talented person. :(
