The Lavochkin LA-7 was a Soviet fighter aircraft developed by the Lavochkin Design Bureau and used by the Soviet Air Force during World War II. First flown in February 1944, the La-7 entered service later that same year. With a top speed of 661 kph (411 mph) and armed with either two or three 20mm guns, it was considered to be at least equal to any German piston-engine fighter of the time. A total of 5,753 LA-7s had been built when production ended in early 1946.
Oxford presents a range of value priced, high quality, die-cast model airplanes. Every model is crafted using specifications of the original aircraft.
