Hi, the movie shows very rare images of early UIL-2. Interesting, even if the inscription is just on them.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Hi,

picture of this Hurricane:


reminded me marking of Popkov's La-FN when I built the kit of his plane in 1:48 http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=201.msg9313#msg9313



Interesting coincidence. La-5FN with the white tail trim and propeller spinner, also Hurricane with the bright (white, silver, sky?) tail trim and propeller spinner, although that planes are from completly different units, regions and time period.
Seems that white (bright) tail trim was not so exeptional element of the marking.

Regards,
