Thanks.
Should I draw a profile, it would be without the white area that seems a fake. Other images of planes of the same unit would be needed. Besides I am not convinced about the lack of the mast, there is something in the photo that could be a pole on the background, but has a suspicious resemblance to an out of standard mast, or a mast casually overposed to a pole on the background.

Yes to the profile.
I think both images were shot at the same place and at the same time. There is a pole in both shots,the photographer changed angles and in the touched up photo it looks like two trees. Also the camo netting i think is in the new photo? However your barley seeing the outer rope edge.
I think I can explain the lack of the antenna mast.
The canopy looks to be broken inside the blue circle it looks to have a jagged edge there. This could explain the lack of a mast it may have been sheared off?

Also #42 has no mast in the image also?

I see, no mast then.
I think that the plane was more likely a FN. La-5F was too poor for an ace in 1945. Besides I think to see some aligned light dots that could suggest scratches on the edge of an oblique metal plate o the sides.

Rain water, perhaps? The fuselage looks very matt

Great image, thank you for sharing.
I've made some tonal corrections:

It seems that the inner color of the wooden part of fuselage could be some grey, probably a-14.
The landing gear doors seem blue (but  could be grey too), while the rear of the fuselage seems to show aluminum paint.
