Hi Misos,
good link indeed, there are tons of photos even if few about Soviet planes. I feel inspired for some panzer.

I wonder if the white backgrounds of the stars are sheets of paper. It is likely that the original stars were deleted already when the photo was taken.

Hi Massimo,

Likely paper as this is a Finnish DB-3M VP-13 loaned for the Germans to test ending to a war-booty exhibition. Serial "VP-..." is clearly visible.

Cheers,

"Stolen" from britmodeller a archive of 464 photos of captured and destroyed soviet planes including some rather exotic examples like ex-Latvian Fairey Seal lots of Ar-2, Yak-2/4, R-5limusin. Some descriptions are wrong.
entire gallery:

Fairey Seal soviet (ex Latvian bort no. 28) destroyed on lake near Riga:

same plane from other side:

Who knows the color of the flap on the outlet of the oil cooler.... chrome yellow?

Could be just a standard glossy green as the rest of the nose, just refracting at different angle.
Please compare to the top of the spinner, which is about the same angle as the flap

If it was a matter of angulation only, this would justify a bigger reflection of the sky  on the upper part of the flap.
But here I see that the lower part, reflecting the ground, is still lighter than other green parts reflecting the ground. 
So my impression is of a light base color.

Hi,
Tapani has given a link to a page of a Finnish newspaper, where there is a photo gallery from a Finnish veteran.
https://www.is.fi/kotimaa/art-2000005717210.html
One of the photos is of a downed Lagg-3 n.68, previously unpublished.

Massimo, when I click on that second link, it takes me to a page that is full of what looks like code.

Hi Jason,
I suspected that the direct link wouldn't have functioned. You'll reach the image from the first one.
