Hi Massimo,
rudder corrected, tail of the lightning modified with the "repair":


On the page with photos http://ava.org.ru/iap/18g.htm the almost all aircraft from 1945 have white board number and lightning, like these:



But this one is again interesting:

- Board number is pretty bright, probably (fresh) white.
- Lightning (forked tail) is darker than board number but seems to have same shade as stars outline - very dirty white? silver?, yellow?
- Shade of the red star is darker than the shade of the lightning.

Work in progress:


regards,

Hi Misos,
I see, it doesn't look forked. Just I see that the bolts are made by mask, and it is likely that the same mask was used more than once.

Massimo

Hi Massimo,
I will correct that rudder.
However, I do not see forked tail of the bold, but only one slash along the entire width of the lightning. It looks more like some blotch - some primer or repair at the lower part of the lightning end:

Hi Misos,
in my idea, the bolt has a forked tail, and a bit of dark grey under it.  The grey-grey division on the rudder should be nearly horizontal.

Massimo

Hi,

For comparison - here is board number and lightning white:

Hi Steph,
I don't think that the information on green-green planes from factory is reliable. A thing is a field repainting, another one is the factory. 
Unfortunately the recalls of veterans about camo colors are unreliable. They could remember correctly the number of a plane or the color of a spinner, but camo colors are another thing. 
If you ask an Il-2 pilot the camouflage of his plane, he likely answers that it was brown and green. Dark grey is never recalled, where one recalls other colors.
Regards
Massimo
