Hi all,
I've received a photo of an Il-10 built in factory 18 from Alexey Valyaev-Zaitsev. It is thought to be painted with the grey-grey camouflage that was prescribed in 1945 for all planes, but probably wasn't widely applied.



The camouflage shows two shades, each covering 50% of the upper and side surfaces. It doesn't resemble to the template of 1945 for Il-2/10, but has some resemblance to the one utilized for fighters.
The image should be from the museum of the factory.

Massimo, was this photograph from the GPW or after?

Best Regards,

Hi,  reportedly of wartime. I think that they passed to green uppersurfaces very soon, perhaps even during the war, but it is very possible that postwar photos were described as wartime ones.

That would make an interesting scheme for a model, with the two greys.

Best Regards,

Yes, even if it hasn't unit markings. I have to see if some of the photos that led to three-color profiles could be consistent with grey camouflage.
