Hi, :)
I've found only one profile on Red Stars n.4, nothing more. Do you need it?

Hi Massimo,
Thanx for the offer, i intend an scratchbuilt 1/32 scale project and searching for colorfull, non British , WW II time Walrus scheme.
I consider the one with US markings, and just by curiosity want to see the VVS one, its exotic and could be eyecatching subject on some modeling contests.
Any small size  informative  scan, say 300-400 pix wide (not to break copyright rules) will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, :)
unfortunately I don't have any idea. I have not found photos. Often Soviet seaplanes were very light grey, but I wonder if any British colour can explain this look.
