Hi,
have a look to colorful pieces of LaGG-3 here.
What colors are there? Red brown? White? Where are from?

Translation by Google:

I visited yesterday LaGG-3 crash site, presumably of 255 IAP VVS SF. Engine covers on this aircraft were first primed on both sides with red primer, then with yellow-green primer, and then exterior was painted in  camouflage colors.
Sequence of paint application on the fabric-covered wooden parts: yellow primer, silver, basic camouflage colors.


Except for the red VIAM B3 primer on metal parts, everything else is in compliance with the known standard practices.

cheers,  Smiley

Thank you Konstantin. All that white was from some distinctive mark?

Hellcat-70 didn't mention white  Huh - what you see as white is bare metal.  This LaGG-3 was camouflaged in standard black-green scheme.

Red primer is most likely alkyd primer No 138



Delta dravesina used in LaGG-3 construction was also red.

Deluted VIAM B-3 wood glue was used as interior paint sometimes too.  The same glue is still in wide use - google Бакелизированная фанера (bakelite plywood)











Cheers,
KL

My mistake!  Shocked

Red primer is most likely ALKYD PRIMER No 138
