well I spoke about this plane:



I find two other pics in scale models .ru:





We can see the guns, I imagine it's a type 17.
Does someone knox where and when are taken those pics?
Any informations about the plane or the regiment ?

in the fist pic, in the fuselage the plane have a strange draw instead of the red star. Does any one have an Idea of what it can be ?

Hi xan! Happy New Year to you, too! Personally, I think it's just a damaged area, possibly caused by a souvenir-hunter trying to peel the surface layer off to get the red star as a war trophy. even though I can't see any sign of the remains of the star. Or maybe it's a continuation of the damage caused by the large hole right below that area.

Something unrelated which I find interesting is the details visible on the left landing gear wheel - it has a pattern of 8 holes which I've never noticed on an I-16 before. Maybe there's a cover plate missing - I see a hole in the centre where the wheel bearing would be, which should be covered somehow to keep dirt from damaging the bearing.

Now with that relatively comprehensive set of photos (rare we get views of both sides, especially 1941), I challenge someone to do a dio of that scene.

Especially you John (?) - doing that with the SH I-16 kit should keep you busy until the next VVS subject appears in 32d.  Grin

the red star is not visible, but the hole made on the fuselage has just the shape of a star.

I think that the white drawing was a bomb or something similar traced by chalk by Germans on the red star. Then the wreck was repeatedly vandalized by souvenir hunters.
