No other information other that it was bought at an auction.

Hi,
very beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing.
The plane is built in Zavod 1 in early 1942, as one can see from the unusual exhaust stacks. The rear fuselage is streghtened by fasteners. Interesting slogan and bolt on the fuselage. The rudder was replaced with the one of another plane. Number black 29. Seems that the white painting on the tail is a regimental mark.  The whitish blotch on the fin could be winter camouflage.
Regards
Massimo

Hi all,
I showed the photo to Ruchkovsky and he pointed on a strange detail, unclear if it is a defect of the photo, a damage of the plane or some artwork.

I think that it is a negative portrait of Lenin made by chalk by German soldiers. It is positioned to receive the bolt in his front.

Regards
Massimo

Hi, it seems this, but it doesn't interrupt the light color of undersurfaces. Perhaps it is a ghost pilot.
