Hi Daniele,
this article is particularly interesting because it gives a key for the colors of the numbers on the tail at the very beginning of the war. 
Modellistically speaking, a thing is interesting of the 'color' system: any color coud choose one to interpretate a photo, if he is wrong there is anyway an identical plane not appearing in the photo with the same number, font and the color of his choice.

Dear friends,
   This seventh article continues to examine the tactical recognition signs.
   In particular are examined the coloring of the top of the tail, called “pilotka” which means “side cap” and of the extremities of the tail, called by the author “Edges”.
   Several examples are illustrated, from the simplest to the more complicated.
   One thing to note is that the color of the “edges” was sometime applied to only the moving part of the rudder.
   White stripes of 60 cm on the fuselage, and 30 cm on the wings, were typical for school airplanes, and, if the airplane was light gray or silver, the bands were usually black.
   However, broad white stripes were used also on the aircrafts of the Northwest Front (SZF) in mid-August 1941, maybe inspired by the yellow bands of the German aircrafts.
   Here follow the captions.

Options for applying additional tactical symbols in the form of "side caps" on the aircraft of the VVS RKKA in 1941.

Just a note on ex-Yugoslav Savoia. Yugoslav Savoias were left in standard Italian colour scheme of yellow base with green and brown spots and were not repainted in standard Yugoslav disruptive camouflage as Do-17K or Blenheim Mk I

Hi Daniele,
thank you again for your useful work. The thing about the bands of the training units is interesting and allows an interpretation for some photos of attractive planes.

Dear friends,
   the eight article of Mr. Timin explores the various camouflage and markings for the aircraft of the Transcaucasian military district.
   Using as usual the numerous crash reports, with photographs included, of the airplanes in this district, he is able to produce a detailed view of the various colors, markings and the single aircraft identification, and includes the photographs of a pair of oddly colored Yak 1.
   As usual, the captions are highly informative.

Hi,
I know that another article was announced for the next issue. I don't know more, but if all the war will be covered with the same level of detail, I supposed that it will last for long. And yes, it would be enough for the best published book on the matter.

Dear Friends,
   I have just received the latest issue of M-Hobby, it has a 9th article, and it say that it continues, so we will have at least ten articles, and at nine pages for issues, it is already a book of almost 100 pages.
   I doubt that it will study the airplanes of 1942 to 1945, as it is called "Camouflage of the aircraft of the Red Army Air Force in 1941" but of course, I hope that it will go on for a long time.
   At the same time, I find that the information it provides will be useful for many more studies, and it is a good time for us all: the post of Massimo and Tapani on SB-2 and La-5 are really very exhaustive and new photos and information comes rolling every day.
   I will go on providing translation for this latest article, but it will take some time due to my working duties.

Hi Daniele,
if it is about 1941 only, I don't think that it will last for long. But the author looks well intentioned to continue the work some day.

Dear Friends,
   On M-Hobby of March, 2019, Mr Timin continues with his detailed analysis of the camouflage and markings of the Russian Airplanes in 1941.
   He continues with the crash reports of the ZakVO – Transcaucasian Military District (Russian: ЗакВО - Закавказский военный округ) of the second half of 1941.
   Each aircraft is described in detail, and I think that the information on the Factory Serial Numbers, and on the Airfields used, could be collected and give us a more exact view of the first year of war.
   The series of articles is going on, and at this time it will comprise at least 11 articles: let us hope for more!

Hi Daniele,
thank you again for your work.
This issue is full of images of fighters with three digit numbers. With reports on accidented planes,  Mr.Timin has found a marvellous source of informations.

Dear friends,
   in his tenth article, Mr. Timin describes camouflage and markings of the airplanes of the Leningrad Military District, the Red Banner Baltic And Northern Fleets.
   The end of the war with Finland, and the transformation of the Air Force brigade system into a divisional one, provoked a great deal of reorganization and changing.
   The airplanes in this sector in 1941 where almost all painted as from the factory, in overall silver or grey or green upper and blue bottom, and stars in six positions.
   Most of the aircraft were classified according to the “color” method, 1st squadron – red; 2nd- blue; 3rd – yellow; 4th – white; 5th – black/green.
   Other planes used the last three digits of the serial as identification numbers, and others used three digits, but so assigned: 1st squadron: 101 – 120; 2nd: 121 – 140; 3rd: 141 – 160; 4th: 161-180; Command: 191 – 199.
    An interesting variation of the numeric system was applied in the 65th SHAP: the number of the squadron was put on the fin, and the number of the aircraft in the squadron, on the rudder.
   Of course also the “pilotka” was widely used.
   The series will continue.
