Hi Misos,
I have many other photos of wartime I-5s, not all in one piece. Could be useful?

Hi Massimo,

I would be gratefull. Any photo of I-5 with (preferably) wired wheels and showing war-time red stars and marking would help a lot.
Thank you in advance.

Hi Misos,
here are the photos that I found.

A camouflaged one:



The most part of the following photos were taken in Kacha, krimea. We see both green planes, both light ones, probably silver-grey. Some of the green plaes have a white band around the fuselage.











Only the last photo shows clearly a number on the tail.


Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
thank you for the photos. The first two show seems 2-color camo. Unfortunately due to german soldier the number on the tial is not visible.

In the meantime I have ffound a better photo of the "White 6":


and this, the plane of famous pre-war woman-pilot Marina Nesterova.:


Propellers seems to be metal, not wooden like here:

Hi Misos,
interesting images.
The close detail of the camouflage is interesting too.
There are reports of an all-black I-5 flying by night in Crimea to provocate reaction by German AA fore advantaging night intruders as UT-1b.

Hi Misos,
I am not sure, but my impression is that the fuselage should be blue in its rear part, and that the blue should be much darker, being the shade in use in mid '30s.

Hi Massimo,
thank you for comment.
What part of the rear fuselage should be blue, please? Or do you mean under surfaces? I saw pics and profiles with both blue or dark green color. This particular "white 6" was interpreted usually with dark green bottom fuselage. So I made it in the same way.

I would have to check but i belive it was in one of old HiPM magazine articles about UT-1b. All that was said about it, was one I-5 was painted black to act as bait for FLAK searhlights and guns which would then be attacked by UT-1b attackers. I belive it was in 46.AP VVS ChF while they were fighting over Caucasus and Kuban

Hi,
it could be a cool model, if one wants to assume the risk to make it without any photo documentation.
