Hi Misos,
this is just what was needed. A profile of the other side with the inscription will make the plane much more interesting.

All no. 24, arrow, starlets and shield are slightly resized, redesigned and repositioned to better fit to what we can see at that photo. Line of stars is not parallel with the arrow now. As I wrote it is very difficult to deffinitely say what is on the photo due to curvature of the fuselage, low andle of the view and of course quality of the photo itself.
Thak you for your comments and inputs.

Sorry, there no shield. The starlets are wrong too (must be 14 total). I have huge foto of № 24, but have no right to publish it. I can send "shield" part to you privately. Plz contact me via email. Sadly, but I havn't time to chk this good forum weekly.

I decided for blue front part of the prop spinner, as 69 giap had red one and Cobras from link http://ava.org.ru/iap/211g.htm about 211 giap had white front part of the prop spinners.
Regards,
   66misos

Previosly I missed the tipo. Must be 211 giap.

Tipo? Must be 211 giap. And about the spinner, it maybe not painted at all.

Hi pg_monster,

thanks a lot for correction. I am also not here every day/week, therefore my a late response.

1. White 24 - I sent you my e-mail addres via Messages at this forum. Photo showing "white 24" with 14 starlets without shield would be very helpfull.
    Other questions:
2. White 21 - do you have a photo showing Shikunov's Cobra without Gvardia emblem?
3. White 111 - yes, typo - 21 besides of 211,
4. White 67 - why do you think that "V" was orange or zellow, but not red?

Hi,
I sent it.
Also I used some your cool profiles (prefer few early versios) at http://ava.org.ru/iap/211g.htm. If you want to add any watermarks or something, just tell me.
and added 2 fotos of №93 (spirale spinner).

Hi,
@ pg monster, thank you.

I have found this picture at czech Modelforum - it shows underwing of the P-39 Cobra:


Is is original Neutral Grey only looking like light blue due to particular light conditions/camera setup at Ilmatorjuntamuseo, Finland (note well known "Silver 26" in the background), or is it repainted by VVS light blue AMT-7 or A-28m?

Hi Misos,

I have seen this hyprid-Airacobra (fuselage from "26", wings from another and fin and rudder from third one) many times before, during and after the restoration. Camouflage colours are original US colours with overpaintings with some unknown colours. I'm living maybe 30 kilometers from the current location of it.

Cheers,
