Hi,
I have questions about colors on the MiG-3 "46" 6 IAD, Moscow PVO. Photo is dated on spring 1942:
http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/silver46.html





1. Undersufraces - still prewar light blue AIIg, or already new blue AMT-7?
AFAIK AIIg had to be used untill all stocks of old AIIg were used. I incline to AIIg

2. Green on the upper surfaces is still prewar dark green AII3, or already new green AMT-4?
If black color is the field application, then old AII3 is quite probable. If black is factory applied on the newly built plane, the new AMT-4 seems to be more probable.

3. Board number is glossy silver, or white color dirty from the exhaust stains?
Comparing it to other planes at http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/colors2.html I incline to silver.

Thank you in advance for your comments.
Regards,

Hi Misos,
 the planes are of later production, apparently with starter dog; the colors are matt, there is not strong contrast between upper and undersurfaces. I would go with AMT colors.
For the numbr: the phot s compatible with both interpretations.
On this photo, the star on the tail looks a bit bigger than on the profile and centered on the hinge line. I would check the camouflage in front of the windshield too

Hi Massimo,

Thank you in advance.

Hi Misos,
looking at this small photo, I am prone to think that the camouflage is good as it is drawn.


In fact, we see a black band under the windshield on the right side too.
