Hi,
here is a very high resolution scan of the instructions sheet of the first post (thanks to Vitaliy).
http://top-50.ru/posts/396006-c6ad32f5260e27780a6b41bcd0798cb9
Here we can see the whole slogan. I hope that it was photographed somewhere.
Regards

Hi Massimo,
this picture is really interesting:

Red "triangel" has no white outline and seems not to have stright lines.
Propeller spinner seems to be lighter than red nose.
Plane in the background (from the same unit?) has in opposite dark (=red?) spinner but no red paint on the engine cowling and no white part on the tail.

Hi Misos,
really interesting. Thank you very much.
I've seen a profile somewhere... maybe on this topic?
Is this plane of the same unit of Kozedub?
About the spinner: it's lighter and matt, I think that it's of the original grey, and only the cowling was painted red.

"White 16" on page two of this topic has a triangle like the nearest aeroplane in this photograph. However, that profile is of an La-7, whilst this is clearly an La-5FN.

Hi Jason, this is right.
Returning on this photo, the plane on the background has an interesting characteristic: the 0 on its side is partially hidden by some repainting, resembling an U. Maybe this worths a profile...

Hi,
IMHO the aircraft on the photo above is "92" from the profiles painting on the page 1, although photo does not show whole aircraft. But it is also " FN" and AMT-12 bellow cockpit connect to the metal plate behind the exhaust in the same way.

Hi,
look at this plane n.14. Seems a La-5F. Its slogan isn't the same of Kozhedub's plane.

Could it be the plane of Yestigneev?  On the photos, it has a FN engine, but I can't see the triangular plates of FN.  Could it be the same plane of Kozhedub after having been re-engined?

Massimo, if you think you can get enough from the photograph, it would make an interesting profile. That "O/U" is rather strange. 66misos, you are correct that the La-5 number "14" does not have the triangular exhaust shielding like an La-5FN. But it was re-fitted with the ASh-82FN. Interesting.

Regards,

Jason

Hi Misos,
another n.14 with a slogan? Is it a sort of good luck number?
Anyway, I think that only the first character is hidden, it looks capital.
Hi Jason,
I've already made a profile. It's an easy work.
