Hi,
I've updated the page on Galchenko's LaGG-3 taking into account the  images found by Misos and the progress in our knowledge of Soviet wartime colors.
http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/lagg3/galachenko/galachenko.html

Some samples:





Please, let me know your comments.

Regards
Massimo

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Hi Massimo,

very nice. However, I have some notes:

1.) Black area just behind propeller is much wider on photos than on your profile and right side of the neiborough green area has different shape:




2.) Check green area at horiz. stabilizer root on this photo:

It is different from your picture:


3.) brighter oval areas over hinges are bigger than on your profiles:



plus rudder trim tab (see arrow) on the right side is brighter than surrounding area:

Thank you Misos.
Do you think that the lighter parts o the rudder could have been painted  red?
regards

Hi Massimo,
I have tendency to make colors on the planes low vis and as simple as possible, especially for planes from that time. Galchenko removed big red stars from his plane. Why would he added something else red on his plane?
I would say it was repainted by some sort of green, or mixture black&ALG-1. It is visible on the several screenshots, so it is not a defect on one particular photo.
However, it is visible only (on the left side) on the winter photo, not on the right side on the summer photos. So it was there problaly only during a short time period and it disappeared when winter camo was overpainted.

May be it would be good to check the sentence of the photos. It is apparent that black and dark green blotches changed their appearance during the time.

Here the lighter area on the horiz. stab reaches only to front edge of the rudder:


while here it reaches much further and hat different shape:


Regarding the winter camo - two white blotches on the left wing I would move now (especially that bottom one) more to the right, closer to the wing root to align them with the black/green area, not leave them like in my original picture:

more like here:

Hi all,
I've updated the page on LaGG-3s with a small page on the last LaGGs: I-105 and I-105-2.

Hi,
I've updated the page on Galchenko again.
I've made small modifications to the camouflage on some drawings.

Hi,
I've made a small page with a profile of the plane of Yegorov.

I know that the 12 is based on weak evidence.

The soviet regiments commanders often used "cool" numbers like 1, 01, 100 ...

Hi,
this is possible, but all what the photo shows seems the top of a 12.
