But, what is the reason to put all those giant photos of wrong models based on wrong drawings of 20 or more years ago?  It's unuseful to repeat here how planes were painted, now we know much more that at those times.

About  numbers of 01: I don't think it's silver, it's too uniform. No shining on the upper part, no shadows where it reflect the dark uniform.
I think that it's simply an older and darker layer of white, painted much before the stripes.

Thanks for all your inputs. I was actually planning to do one of the other schemes on the AML sheet, but these discussions on Popkov's aircraft now made me reconsider again. I think there is enough uncertainty from that photo to conclude that it "might" be silver, although I agree with Massimo and Kikko that it could also just be older paint. The difference is quite noticeable though. I do think in this case, because I have the AML sheet, because their interpretation is not quite impossible and it would certainly make for an interesting interpretation, I might just go for Popkov's plane but with the silver 01 and stars. I am also still in two minds whether the rudder tip should be white or not...

I am working on two other projects at the moment, so I still have time to consider it. Massimo, this whole discussion on Popkov's aircraft could make for an interesting article on your La-5 pages?

Hi Bennie, hi Enrico,

Certainly, the fact to have a decals sheet is a good reason to accept it unless it's proven wrong and there is a better alternative.

I think I'll certainly include photos of those planes and some comments, but they will be only a quick resuming of the topic because, unfortunately, a clear conclusion was not reached.
I suppose that the next plane of which I'll collect photos will be the SB.
