In the spring of 1940, a group of designers directed by S.Lavochkin, V.Gorbunov and M.Gudkov proposed a new experimental fighter to be built for test flight - the "I-301". As a result of shortages concerning metallic materials, basic construction was made using "delta-wood", or wood soaked in special phenolic resins. The aircraft was powered by a 1050h.p. M105P liquid-cooled engine enabling it to reach speeds of 605 km/h - it was faster than a modified "Me-109", Germany's main fighter. Production of the new plane, named the LaGG-1, was started just before the end of flight testing, the plane's construction being developed in time for production to proceed serially. Series 35 was a modification, equipped with the more powerful M-105PF engine. For weight reduction some armament was deleted - only one UBS machine gun and one ShVAK cannon remained. To increase maneuverability the aircraft was equipped automatic slats, and aerodynamic performance was improved. After that LaGG-3, series 35 approached the performance of the Me-109F, Germany's main fighter. Aircraft of this type were used all over the Eastern Front, the Finnish Air Force also using a few captured LaGG-3. More then 6500 planes of all modification were built in total. This kit includes parts for the assembly of one plastic model kit. The set requires both glue and paint in order to be completed. Paints and glue are not included. For modelers aged 14 and older
