This is an injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit.
From the manufacturer:
The La-5's heritage began even before the outbreak of war, with the LaGG-1 and LaGG-3 aircraft. The LaGG-3 was fitted experimentally with the new Shvestov Ash-82 radial engine in 1942. When the prototype took its first flight, the result was very pleasing. After flying the LaG-5, Air Force test pilots declared it superior to the Yak-7.
Maximum-rate production and the conversion of any incomplete LaGG-3 airframes to the new configuration of the aircraft was ordered by July 1942. While still inferior to the best German fighters at high altitudes, the La-5 proved to be every bit their match closer to the ground.
This kit is molded in grey and clear plastic, and includes decals for two marking schemes.
