Yet another photo (which I just found on ebay.de this week) of a much-photographed, ski-and-RS-82-equipped, early Yak-1:



I'm really curious why this particular aircraft was photographed so many different times by so many different people, but by now the answer to that question is probably lost forever!

Perhaps it was an experimental version, the first ski-equipped Yak-1?

Hi, here is an interesting MiG-3:


Do you think it was repainted yellow?
Thanks to Vitaliy Timoshenko for the link.

Hi guys,

not a contribution, but rather a request - Now that Amodel has brought out its new AIR-6 kit, are there any photos out there showing such a plane captured by the German army? I consider putting one into a diorama..

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers,
Christian

thanks for that, some I have seen before, this Airacobra is a neat find



ex-RAF, not sky band, and serial AH674?  
this looks to be in Day Fighter Scheme,  as the Temperate Land Scheme have sky section under tailplane.  
The large stars are of note, as the British applied ones usually had a black outline.  Coloured rudder maybe?
Mentioned here http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/board/index.php?topic=239.90

The B-25


looks to be one of the J models delivered in VVS specified colours.   Shame more isn't visible.

Here's something not often seen, from Scalemodels.ru, posted by mmoustaf - a German photo of a captured La-5F:



The handwritten caption on the back seems to suggest it's a "Jak 6" - maybe TISO will be interested... Wink

John

From this link they list it as a 31 IAP?

Also another photo of #23 in the same post not sure if they are listing it as a 31 IAP as well. The stripe on the wing is different.



Did a quick search of this group & came up with this link with a few photos.

Hi Rodney, thank you for the interesting links.
None of these profiles of 23 seems to correspond well to the photo, the spinner and the tail star are different.

Hi Barney,
really nice pictures. I like especially belly landed Cobra, I never saw it before.
We spent here some time in discussion while colorizing that belly landed Il-2  http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=1912.0

Hi,
http://postimage.org/image/l9hddz6qv/

interestingly, the 'f' mark on the nose seems not to have a white background with red letter,  nor a white letter on camo background, that are the possibilities shown on the MBI monograph. The round mark seems a medium color, as medium blue, possibly with the letter in red.

Should planes of 31 IAP have white stripes on the wings?
