Hi,
a further addition about 159 IAP:

Note the absence of red stars on the fuselage, and the characteristic fonts of this unit at the time.

Thank you. I wonder if this text could be related to another plane.

Dear Massimo,
   as you suspect the information is for the following airplane:

The inscriptions are "За Гальченко!" with a large "З" superimposed to "Горьковскому пожарному", so it a plane donated by firefighters, and with a dedication, an eagle and a couple of stars.
   About the “silver” plane, it comes from M.Yu. Bykov, who says it is in a factory applied gloss white, as was in use in winter 42/43, unit unknown.
   What appears as a white stripe on the rudder is said to be a light effect.
   About the heart, it is presumed yellow / orange, the arrow black, the trimmer either black or minium.
   Dmitry Novikov thinks instead that it is silver, with pale red spinner, star and tail number, with a green heart and black or dark red arrow.
   Well, who knows, but these are really colorful planes!

Hi Daniele,
thank you for the answer. I remembered to have seen something relative to this plane some days ago. If I understood well, they thought that there is an inscription Eskadrilya Valeriy Chkalowon the other side.
They supposed that the iscription Za Galchenko was made with chalk for photo purposes only, isn't it?

About the (supposedly) silver plane, I agree that the apparently white part on the tail was due to reflection only. I considered that the heart could have been green with reference to the German Grunherz, but the photo shows it black, while any green should have been lighter, more or less as the red star.

Hi Daniele, hi all,
this link shows the reconstruction of plane 18 made by Kazakov.
Here there is the photo of another plane 2x with the same slogan of firefighters, and a document that suggests that it should have the inscription VCh on the other side.
https://avk-tehnik.livejournal.com/23075.html?utm_medium=email&utm_source=GuessWhoBack

The origin of the photo seems to be here:
https://zaika70.livejournal.com/29073.html
There is something written on this Galchenko, that, if I understand well, wasn't the famous ace but another pilot kia.

Quote
Devyatkin Nikolai Dmitrievich at La-5 "Gorky Fire" with a dedication "For Galchenko." The inscription seems to be made with chalk or pastel. Galchenko Leonid Romanovich, born in 1922 graduated from Bataysk VSL in 1942 On the front since July 1942. In the regiment since September 1942. Military rank ml. Lieutenant awarded by order of the commander of the Kalinin Front No. 055 / ok from 05/05/1943. He died in a dogfight on 05/30/1943. He was posthumously awarded an OB of the 1st degree . La-5F bn 67

Hi Daniele,
yes, it is nice, I am drawing it according to the interpretation of Kazakov.
A new thing is that the inscription VCh is not necessarily associated to the farmers of Gorki.  Orlov himself (Owl99) declared that this is a new information.

Hi Massimo,
A lot of modellers will be disapointed, like me,  to learn that it's a decoration for museum . So,  I will not use it.
Fortunately, you propose a lot of other sketches for La 5.

Best regards

Hi Bernard,
I agree, this subtracts a lot to the interest of this machine.
