I think the flying and the shot down MiG-3 are likely the same plane: the spinner rear part of the flying aircraft looks darker than the front part, and perhaps spinning and reflection show it lighter.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Hi Massimo,
I am not sure about anything Wink Regarding top view (and upcomming bottom view) applies the same as for side view http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/board/index.php?topic=2354.msg20635#msg20635.
Anyhow, according to this photo:

the wing leading edge looks pretty straight and pitot tube a bit longer. I will correct them.

Massimo, Otto, thank ycou for comments regarding late version 27/97. I will come back to it after I finish top & bottom view of the early version.
Regards,

Hi Misos,
I've checked on the drawings I have, none shows discontinuity in the angulation of the leading edge from above.
regards
Massimo

What is the stencilled inscription on the nose



I presume this is a close up shot of the famous image



the above being red 12,  as the camouflaged MiG-3 is in the same alignment and the shadows are the same. Also, the starter attachment on the spinner.


the above being a close up of the 36 below


is this the other side of 02, note wear to paint  on back of prop blades and blade position.

compare

Hi,
outstanding photos.
The inscription on the nose is the reduction ratio of the gear. There were two variants of the engine gear, each associated to a different propeller.

I just picked some from the link provided by PG_Monster

One thing, the image of black 12 in the link looks to be overall sliver

compared to the image here
http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/12gviap/black12.html


The darker image shows more detail, and black 12 has the metallic lustre I associate with the aluminium paint.

I am being continually amazed at the new images being posted on ava.org.ru, thanks PG monster!  I did message you.
