Great photos, thank you for posting them, Massimo the camouflage may have been painted the same way that Curtiss painted P-40's with mats hence the hard demarcation.

Cheers

Hi Dennis, this looks likely.
The roundel deleted with black paint is particularly interesting on a model.

Hi,
here is a photo of the nice Cobra of I.M. Fanin from 9 iap http://soviet-aces-1936-53.ru/abc/u/fanin.htm



Note (probably)
- red white-outlined belts on the wings,
- red prinner with the white spiral,
- red white-outlined lightning on the engine cover,
- victory stars above the lightning (14? 15?...)
- white/silver board number "24",
- no serial number on the tail,
- looks like late "Q" version without wing guns.

Regards,

Hi Misos,
this plane is one of the most beautiful Cobras I've seen. I suppose you'll draw a profile of it some days.

Hi,
I have found this link http://www.mi-psi.eu/cs/p-39.html with the skins for the Il-2 simulator, some of them based on my profiles. Really nice to see those planes in 3D.
One of those pictures as an example:

Hi,
pretty interesting photo is pasted at http://ava.org.ru/iap/211g.htm (pg_monster's page):



Marks of the farst recognition in the 23 giad (21, 69 and 211 giap) - short wide horizontal white lines on the rudder, color propeller spinners and overpainted serial numbers on the tail.

So this should be applicable also to Shikunov's plane from 69 giap:

http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/board/index.php?topic=1714.msg15348#msg15348

Another interesting note about Shikunov's Cobra from my frieng building another P-39 in 1/32 - look at the little vent between propeller and front landing gear:

https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/usa/aircrafts-2-3/p-39-2/p-39n-69giap-schikunov-44/

And the same could be applicable to Proshenkov's Cobra from the same 69 giap (and also Q version instead on N?):

However, are there wing guns at this plane?

It is typical for late Cobras (cca Q-15 and latter). N version did not have it - see green elipse in the picture below:

Hi Misos,
those tails look interesting. Do you think to make modifications to the already published pages, or to make some profile?

If you means the shield - I not sure, maybe as the numbers. The order is standard Red Banner.

Probably a white shield. On one photo it appears lighter than the spinner, in another appears darker. Probably they are different shades of white.

Hi,
so here I made a profile of Shikunov's Cobra:



IMHO, it is a Q version, not N, see my comments in my post above.

pg_monster, what was, please, a color of the propeller spinner (and probably also fuselage number outline) on the Cobras in 21 giap http://ava.org.ru/iap/211g.htm? I would like to make also a profile of the White 111.
Thank you.

Regards,

Hi Massimo,
thank for comment.
Here is WIP on anoter Cobra from 23 giad / 21 giap:





Interesting detail is the reinforcement of the rear fuselage without painting, only NMF.

Still need to know the color of the prop spinner.
