Hello,

I'm working on 3 P-39s: P-39K SN: 42-4421 "white 13" flown by A. Pokryshkin during Spring 1943, another P-39K SN: 42-4403 "white 21" flown by D. Glinka during Spring 1943 too and a P-39N "white 2" flown by N. Gulaiev late in 1944.
I searched in my docs but not sure regarding the ID lights on P-39K and N under the starbord wingtips Huh I found some photos with it and others without... I read somewhere on the web that only the US P-39K-L-M-N and Q had it, not the Soviet P-39's...
Any info to help me please ?
Regards
Steph

Sorry if it's the wrong section... Maybe "Grat Patriotic War" => "Land-lease planes" ?

Hi steph40,
Soviets did not use those lights ("semafor"). So machines built according to the VVS specification (Q) did not have them. From machines already built (earlier types) and delivered within L-L they did not remove it.
This could interested you:

Hi 66misos,

Thank you for the reply...
So, I keep working on my models and no ID lights...
I knew these links and I had already saved your work in my "favourites"

Hi Steph40,
...So, I keep working on my models and no ID lights...
it depends on version you are going to build. I would keep them in version K,L,M and N. Even some Q could have them.





while this late Q already does not have them:
