Hello everybody:

I would like to know about the primer paints that where used at the begining of the GPW on planes like I-16,Mig-3 and Lagg-3.The yellow-mustard paint known as the ALG-1,was applied only on wood surfaces or on the entire plane?
Thanks in advance for your answer.Best regards:

Hi Martin, Smiley
for what I remember of an old discussion, ALG-1 yellow was for metal surfaces, but I have no evidence of its use on MiG-3s. The yellow utilized on the wooden surface (over a layer of fabric too) had another name, a sort of nitroputty if I remember well.
Unfortunately, a lot of interesting things were lost with the restart of the Hobbyvista forum.
Or was this on Airwarfare forum?

Hi Martin, Smiley
I don't know for sure, but I suspect that the metallic external surfaces were painted directly with green or blue.
