The production of colored etched  is widespread.  Previously, production colour etched was only Czech (Eduard, MPM) and China (Dream Models).

Now does this technology seem to be owned also in Russia?

Look as paint in AMT-11. It's not mistake, because early production La-9 was painting in two layers grey AMT-11 or his analogue A-33m, late production painted in more light gray A-36g & PF-36m.

Thus, depending on the production time, La-9 could be painted in four shades of gray:

* - Massimo Tessitori gives the site the same pictures for A-36g & PF-36m.  B.w. Alexander Akanikhin believes that AMT-16/AGT-16 was also Soviet post-war overall grey

what increases the number of colors of La-9 in gray to five or probably to six!

The A-36g on North Korean Yak-9’s weathered quickly and took on a flat, chalky-whitish gray hue well-documented in kodacolor photos taken by GIs in 1950.

Пресс формы на Ла-11 и Ла-9 установили на наши литьевые машины и вывели на промышленный режим литья. В конце месяца в товарном виде первый набор Ла-11 появиться на прилавках розничных магазинов.

googled:

The press forms on La-11 and La-9 were installed on our casting machines and brought to industrial casting mode. At the end of the month, the first set of La-11 will appear on retail stores.

This is great news!!  The La-9/11 was a mainstay of a number of prominent air forces including the USSR, the Commie Chinese, North Korea, and  Indonesia. It will certainly look great next to any Korean War F-51D.

They write that rescale from 48th to 72nd scale is not planned. 😣

 

Therefore, my revenge will be terrible!😁

Something the model in topic is completely different from the "original" 😁

La-11!😁😁
Just kidding!😁😁
 In fact, the photo shows a real conversion to the La-11 from the Yak-18:

real whose purpose is unknown, they  used how aerobatic team.

But the real one, La-11, from Monino (missing from the museum) can be seen at 2:30 video here:

Unfortunately, the video can only be viewed directly on the official YouTube channel of the Mosfilm film concern.

Hope its better than the Micro mir kit...🤔

as written here:

http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic.php?t=80678&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=20
"The Scale Bureau mathematical model (as it is written in the original - note from me 

) was used, which was reworked for high pressure injection molding.  All errors and inaccuracies were corrected.  Which are still present on the so-called cut-star analogue*, which is, in fact, a (not) cheap replica of the resin model ( Scale Bureau  - note from me)

, reworked by "cunninghand"
(as it is written in the original - note from me )
 craftsmen for low pressure casting."

 

From this message it follows that all La-9/11 models are based on the same mathematical model first implemented in a resin kit from Scale Bureau La-9/11, which was then "creatively" (according to the author of the cited post) copied with all errors in  short-run model from MicroMir, but in ArkModels all errors in the original mathematical model have been corrected.

The North Koreans had some interesting Color schemes. I hope the decals reflect their “snake” scheme. Green over gray.
