Please note that there is no antenna mast. And the front of the hood is the color red as it seems to me.

Hi Musa,
it's without mast here too. The nose looks changed.

Thank you Massimo! I drew the two variants of color. But now I see that the spots are not a regular position.

Hi  Musa,
my guess is that the front ring was medium grey on the earlier plane, and then was repainted dark grey. Besides I think to see only white and red on the spinner of the second one, and an only white band on its tail. The dark grey band on the fuselage looks to have covered the factory painted number, and the band on the tail looks to have covered the factory painted star.
Again, I guess that the spinner of the first version could appear white as his LaGG-3, and as a base for the stripes of the last version.
Are there other sources on this plane?
Regards
Massimo

Hi Walker,
We discussed photos above in the thread about Galchenko's La-5F, link is in my post above. Stripe on the tail looks same single-color (white?, silver?) as the "board" bellow the cockpit. No victory stars are visible on the board.

On photographs of this quality, I would not judge any of the colors, nor any of the bands on the victory sign. I think people who painted color profiles have better quality photos.

The magazine says that the archive photo from V.A. Kriklenko.  Unfortunately I do not know him.

Author of the article in the magazine, Yuri Rybin from Murmansk. He writes in his article that the plane with stripes and stars victories participated as such in the "Victory Parade" 06.24.1945.

Bykov... maybe you could contact him to know more. Or maybe, Rybin could have the file with a scan of the original photo.

Hi Musa,
Bykov was on this forum long time ago. I've sent a mail to him. I think that he'll answer if he had some other sources when he drew the profile, else I suppose he had the very same images.
