Hi,
the restored plane is good-looking for a model or a profile.
Jason, have you found photos of the restored Il-2 too?

Here you are, Massimo.  Would you like me to find the "before" photograph?

Regards,

Jason

Thank you Jason. This restoration is very nice, before this topic I didn't know of a Shturmovik preserved in Bulgary .

Thanks for the photos, KL. Looks like an excellent restoration. I wonder what they used as a basis for the colours.

The restoration was more of a weekend paint project in 1:1 scale.
check photos at http://www.airgroup2000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=225051&start=540

Massimo,
how about a profile of Yak-9M from the beginning of the tread in light gray and dark green (or dark gray)?

Hi Konstantin,
when I'll start to trace profiles of Yaks, this will be one by sure. Pity for the unknown number on the fuselage.

Nice link, Konstantin, thank you!  You can see the wretched state of the Shturmovik (at the time) in the background of a couple of the photographs.  I like the photograph of the Bulgarian chap whistling as he paints the new roundel.

Regards,

Jason

Thanks for the link, KL! There are a lot of great photos there, showing details of not only the Yak-9P but also a MiG-15 and a couple of Yak-23's. At 62 pages, it'll take some time to check them all, though! However, I thought this one was interesting - it shows original AMT-7 under... something else - some leftover Cornflower Blue interior alkyd from somebody's home renovation project, maybe:

Some photos from fifties which may help to get an idea for Yak-9M camouflage.  IMHO, the "donors" for dark green were Il-10s:



on the following photo Il-10 and Yak-9M (in original gray-gray camouflage) together:



light gray was already in wide use, like on the following Yak-11



from:  http://www.airgroup2000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=226068&start=30

... Pity for the unknown number on the fuselage.



It's 25 or 35, more likely 25 - not many Yak-9Ms remained after 1948.

Would that light grey on the Yak-11 be A-36m/g?

Yes, A-36g or AGT-16... as per Pilawskii's Yak-11 page at http://www.redbanner.co.uk/History/Yak11/Yak11_paint.html

Yes, someone did. Michal Sekula did this fine profile for my upcoming book, 'Soviet Fighters of the Second World War'. Here's the link.
