Lavochkin La-11

Evolved from the La-9 to meet a requirement for a fighter with sufficient range to fulfil the escort role, the La-11 was destined to be the last piston-engine fighter from the Lavochkin bureau. It had a wing fundamentally similar to that of the La-9 and retained the ASh-82FN engine, but provision was made to attach auxiliary fuel tanks at the wingtips, the ventral oil cooler was incorporated in the engine cowling and armament was reduced to three 23mm NS-23 cannon. The first prototype was flown in June 1947 under the design bureau designation La-134, and production (1947-51) at Gor'kiy was to total 1,182 aircraft.

The La-11 was supplied in some numbers to both the Chinese and the North Korean air forces, and saw operational use during the Korean conflict. It was finally phased out of first line VVS service in the early 'fifties.

Ôhe La-11 was the Soviet equivalent of the long range P51D.There were a few dogfights between Lavochkins and F4U Corsairs and P51 Mustangs but then the United Nations introduced their jets almost all North Korean piston aircraft were shot down,remaing La-11 served as night fighters

Estoy buscando información sobre el avión Lavochkin La 11, algún libro que contenga detalles para la construcción de una maqueta a 1 /3 de escala, así como detalles de acabado y decoración del mismo.

Yes, you may find such information in Squadron Signal book: F4U in Action [Aircraft In Action No. 29].

Are there any recorded dogfights between North Korean or Chinese Lavochkins and American piston engine aircraft?
