To be honest, Troy, I don't think it is.  Massimo made it for my book.  Since it's not VVS, it looks like he has not posted it on any of his Il-2 research pages.

Hi Troy and Jason,
the plane was certainly an arrow built in Z.18 because the flushed fairing of the gun is recognizable.
This is not the latest version of the drawing: the marks on the fuselage should have a narrow division part. Jason, I have to send to you the latest version.
By the way, when will your book be published?
Regards
Massimo

That's very exotic.
I like that one.
Another for your book Jason. Cheesy

Massimo, I'm still waiting on the Tamiya 1/72nd scale model to review.  After that, it's some tidying up and re-reading and proofing and it's ready.  I've just received some very nice photographs of the flyable Il-2 (Flying Heritage Musuem), so I have all my photographs of the still existing Shturmoviks.  By the end of June it will be available in e-book format, at least.

Regards,

Jason

Here is the latest release.

Jason, I'm sending the updated file.
Note that it has the ring aerial characteristic of metal rear fuselages, and the same style of flushed tail wheel fairing characteristic of Z.1.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo

Neat work.   
Any reason you went for underwing stars as opposed to the Mongolian insignia?

 I has a search earlier to see if I could fine photos of other WW2 era Mongolian planes [Yak-9, I-16] to see if any idea about marking practices in general but nothing turned up.

This was asked about on the thread on Britmodeller.  Anyone know more?

thanks

Hi Troy,
I've read some page (I don't remember well now) that at that time Mongolian planes preserved the red stars on the wings.

Troy, if I squint really hard at the photograph you provided, I can just about convince myself I see a faint star.  Anyone else see anything, or are my medications wearing off (or kicking in, as the case may be)?

Regards,

Jason
