Hi Massimo,
I've already sprayed the camo as your profile suggested and unless the pilot himself (!) or people who have seen the specific plane with their own eyes  Cheesy say otherwise this will be the definite scheme of the model. When finished I'll post photos.
Thanks a lot again,
Regards,
Panagiotis.

Hi,
I've uploaded a profile of the famous La-5 of Kostylev (he flew it once...) at

Hi Panagiotis,
I'm happy that you appreciate the scheme. I think that it is somewhat a progress on previous profiles, but it's hard to say if it is right.
I wait to see your model.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
I feel stunned! This is a great sketch and negates all the previous assumptions on the camo of this very profile! My hands are still very warm on my Badger 150 airbrush so this marvelous sketch will be my only guide and for sure will be sth completely different which has been attempted from my fellow modelers all these yrs!
So, I will use this AMT-1 shade and darken the green on my model a little. The thin lines which quite add to the beauty of this camo will be a lighter tone of the AMT-1 as I sprayed them on my yesterday's attempt. No stars on the upper surfaces? The blue 8 is a revolutionary assumption  Smiley  and will add to the general image. Correct me where I'm wrong. I know, I've learned it from you, ..guess is the key word. Based on knowledge and experience of course.
Much obliged,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
I've attempted a sketch.
I suppose that the camouflage was a non standard fall one, later modified into a winter one.
The colors are unknown, I suppose that they are greyish brown similar to AMT-1, but perhaps they hadn't the original color, made mixes and so all retouches result very visible and make more complex the camouflage.
The brown seems to cover the black on the known side of the fuselage, so it is likely that it was so on all the plane.
The right wing shows wide light areas at the tip, excluding the leading edge. I suppose that it was thinned white. Perhaps some white is visible on the rear of the left wing. The rear part of the spinner could be green. The number is light enough, I suppose light blue.  The dark area visible around the number is very unconsistent.
Please keep in mind that this thing is widely my guess.



Regards
Massimo

 Hi Massimo,
The stars of the wings are not done yet for sure. I'm waiting for a decal sheet with black outlined stars. It's the fuselage I worked on yesterday. I'll be waiting for your sketches too. Today I got the decal emblems for the engine cowlings of my "orange 100" Yak-3. Jeez, this repainting work on my Soviet quadruple never seems to end! But I definitely will end this the right way soon.  Wink
Regards
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
I fear that the repainting work isn't ended. I will try to obtain a sketch from the available photos this afternoon, at the moment I can say that the stars on the wings are certainly wrong.
I suspect that the grey-or what it is-covers the black parts. Besides some other light lines are visible on the fuselage.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
Plenty of work on my model with all the necessary things for a 88-B conversion already done. The spray work has reached to this point. The 1st photo is purposely B&W as I want to show that the green on the fuselage looks much lighter in the photo. Could eventually the dark shade in the original plane be black after all? Undecided
Do comment on the color shades in the second photo please.

Regards
Panagiotis.

Hi all,
are there new informations on this plane with sharkmouth, please? The name of the pilot, the bort number, the unit? I would draw a profile if the informations are sufficient.
Regards
Massimo
