Hi Marcin, Smiley
thank you very much. I had a thumbnail-size version of this one, but the high resolution version is much better. I've aready drawn a profile of this one, I have still to upload it.
I suppose that its spinner was red. Usually it follows the camo scheme and is black, but this one is lighter. I don't see reason to repaint a spinner green when the nose and the blades are still black...

the spinner is obviously a replacement item as it is the same shade as the green in the camoflage.
if it were red it would be much darker , in fact the same shade as can clearly be seen on the red star on the underside of the wing.

Have a look to the star on fuselage. It don't look so dark. The one on wings looks dark for contrast to the light blue undersurface.
Besides the usual color of spinners was black because it continued the usual camouflage of the fuselage. It is possible that it was repainted green, or taken by a rare plane with green spinner, but in my opinion the arguments for red one are stronger.

I was referring to the second photo, the one posted by Marcin.
in the second photo the spinner is not nearly dark enough to be red, notice how the red stars both appear so dark as to be almost black?
I looked into this fine image a little deeper and now believe the spinner might be too dark to be green.
so how about a different interpretation ?
email me or send a PM for this image as this forum? does not have an image upload feature.

From the already posted image, one can see that the camouflage colors on the fuselage are matt, while both the spinner and the star on fuselage are gloss. So I think that red is more likely.
