compared to model profile artwork, is not the top of fin possibly red, note it's similar tone to stars, but darker than the AMT-12 visible?

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



It was my mistake assuming when the Russian model site had the two photos in the same post that they were from the same unit. Based off the profiles I would say no stripe on the wing of 31 IAP.

Hi Rodney,

I don't think. It's not identical to the shade of the star, and there is a small light portion visible behind the star, just above the long white line. So I think that it's simply dark grey, repainted or better preserved than on the fuselage.

Hi all,
Vitaliy has sent a link to a post with a P-39 and a Po-2 with a beautiful eagle emblem, I think of V. Sirotin.

Hi Massimo,
interesting link and funny comment there...

That eagle was quite popular symbol, it is also on this La-7:


And the source of that picture is - american pork stew can:

Hi Misos,
yes, popular indeed, even on some Il-2s.
I think that the La-7 was the one of Amet Khan.
Is it from a can of meat? Too bad... if the plane is the can, the pilot can only be the meat.

Massimo, that is indeed Sultan Ahmet-Khan's La-7, and Tovarish Ahmet-Khan in the cockpit.

Hi Jason, I remembered the photo because of the discussion on a profile of EP showing the plane without any arrow.

Really a nice photo, I hadn't seen it before. Pity that the number is unreadable.
Seems that the front part was repainted, while the rear one and the wings are rather faded.
The tail wheel doors are lacking, probably the tail wheel was fixed in extended position.
What is the source of this image?

Google translation.

44th year, is already on the margins of Europe. The Red Army is rapidly becoming saturated, it is felt in the words of individuals pilots. Somewhere among them on the photo and my grandfather. Machine - fighter La-7

That's an La-7 - look at the nose. That's interesting about the tail wheel; I didn't think they fixed the tail wheels on any of the La-7 fighter versions (it was fixed on the La-7UTI trainer version, but that was postwar anyway).

Regards,

the AT-6 photo is great, shame the serial is obscured.

in the link there is a sidebar on the left, I noticed this, looks to be an LA-5FN (FN logo on cowl?)  in Black/Green uppersurface?   This may have been posted before?

That is indeed an La-5FN, Troy. I intend on doing this very aeroplane, once I can find the appropriate white "57" for it.

Jason
