I have stumbled across that photo several times recently & didn't think much about it. I saved it finally & I have been trying to find it again on some of the Russian sites I was looking at. I can't find it now no matter how hard I try. I will keep an eye out for it I don't recall if there was any text with it.
Most of these photos I have posted of late have nothing other than the photo.

Dear Friends,
   if you go on EBay.de, and digit in the research box the words "farbdia flugzeug smolensk" you will be able to see 12 images, of which nine are 240 x 240 DPI Agfa color images of captured, and damaged, Russian planes from 1941.
   I find these new images fascinating.
   If you just digit "farbdia smolensk" you get 157 images of varying interest, but all of them in color.
   Hope you will enjoy these slides as much as I did
Best regards
Daniele

Those are interesting - Thank you for the information! I didn't see one of an Il-2, my favourite, though.

Hi,
really great!
This shows not only the camouflage of the Li-2, but shows La-5FN and La-7 of 4 GIAP KBF, confirming that the types had differently shaped white painting on the tail.

Hi,
here is a page with a good collection of wartime color photos of Soviet planes.
I think that the most of them are real photo colors, few of them (the better looking of course) are colorized.

a nice camouflage:



Very partial, but inspiring.

Massimo, do you have any guesses what the colours were? Black, green, tan maybe?

Hi Jason,
about the I-16 I can only guess, besides I don't know for sure the time frame, I suppose it is before the war because of the stars over the wings.
If they are the same colors of tanks, they could include very dark brown and a light yellowish brown, on a matt green as 4bo.

Hi Warhawk,
the MiG-3 is not camouflaged but vandalized. Part of the skinning of the wing was removed by souvenir hunters, including the red star. The underlying color should be yellowish putty.

About the Yak: I suppose that it was painted with Soviet colors, AMT-4-6-7.

Regards
Massimo
