Good work, but surely not red tail tip.

Hi,
do you mean that the color should be another one, or that there should be not any cap?

Of course, the cap at 110 is clearily visible. But it is light, not red. Probably white, as at 21.

Hi,
my impression is that the cap is comparable to the shade of the red star on the fuselage.

Hmm, but also the cap is comparable to the shade of 110 number. Maybe the number is red too?

Other I-152, "5" of 42 IAP - my impression is the very wide dark(red?) obluque band with light outlines. The number 5 and the winged star are placing at that band. So "cap" in regular green.

Hi,
I saw the plane drawn in such way, but I think that it is wrong. The lower line can easily be a piece of adhesive tape on the edge of the metalic fillet of the fin, often seen on Polikarpovs. The darker impression of the fin can be due to its different inclination compared to the skin of the top of the fuselage. Photos of other planes of the same unit, without the tape, don't give the impression of a dark band on the sides of the tail.
