Hi Massimo,
thank you for comment. Here is corrected profile - changed positions of the stars and a bit prolonged barrel of the gun in the wing:

Hi Massimo,
thank you. Smiley I will not do Type 29. I will do another Type 24 in black-green camoflage. It will be 4-view of this red 30:



Here is work in progress:

Not sure whether cowling is black or (it seems) significantly darker (green?) and at front part even darker black blotch.

hi Misos,
the camouflage looks convincing.
I think that the spinner was black, and that the fastener was black too apart for little scratching.

Hi Massimo,
yes, you are right. This is only aan early stage of WIP.

Here are another pphotos of black-green camo on thr different types of I-16:




and views from the other side:



Although borders between black and green fields are either angular or rounded, their positions and ovverall style is quite similiar. Moreover, they all nicely follow on the top of the fuselage to the fields on the othe side. It looks like some system, although not exactly NKAP scheme.

Hi Misos,
you're right, a good number of I-16 shows an adaptation of the nkap template to the short fuselage of I-16. On the rear, often (not always) the ball-like blotch on the sides disappear. On the front, it can be that the blotches on the side of the nose are merged with the one of the nose, or that one or another disappear because of the lack of space.

Hi Misos,
from the photo of n.30, seems that the top of the 3 doesn't surpass the panel line of the fillet of the fin.

I'm a few days late, but here are a few more photos of "White 3":







I hope these might still be useful; I have 3 or 4 more, but these are the best ones.

Hi,
thank you all.
Massimo, profiles are corrected and replaced in my posts above.
John, interesting photos. According to them it really does not look like red tail and black front of the engine cowling.

Hi Misos,
the top of the 3 is too rounded for my eye. Besides its lower side should end with a round, and the intermediate branch should be tapered, and the lower side of the top should be convex, and end with a protuberance downwards.

Hi Massimo,

Hi Massimo,
thank you for comment. However, I was sure it was too big. It was only copied and not properly adjusted.
Here is a little progress - I tried firstly paint black areas that are visible on the photo, then I let inspired myself by similar LaGG-3 camouflages from that period and this is a result:
