LaGG - 3 (Series 29) skins

Recommended Posts

VVS pilot with Yellow spinner hub = was really a suicidal guy. Or just an idiot :)

 

Remember guys - Germans, all possible means, were avoiding using red color in their markings.

 

VVS guys were always avoiding using Yellow color for fast identification markings.

If I remember correctly this went in effect from the middle of 1942 onwards, no?

 

Pokryshkin had a yellow spinner on his MiG in 1942, 55 IAP used yellow rudder markings on I-16s before the war, and I think some ChF regiments had yellow tail markings even in 1943. As you noted those were exceptions, of course.

 

This LaGG-3 looks like a grey spinner though.

No, he was  not.

 

There are no even one avoable photo of Pokryshkin's MiG. Only speculative color profile rooting back in mid-90's.

Thanks for the information, it's good to know! :)

 

Last off-topic question, is it known if the spinner was AMT-4 or A-11? I need to re-do a couple of our MiG-3 skins now, you see :biggrin:

Skins will be released in very good shape, with a decent amount of weathering, numbers will be 1-16, two different camo versions and the winter edition (could look like this, pic below)

Great stuff Rook! An entire V.P. Mironov themed regiment. :cool:

 

When I first saw your post as an email notifaction I thought; what does he mean? "numbers I-16" has the man bumped his head? :wacko: Now I get it. (1-16 doh!)

 

If only we could assign skins individually to aircraft like in the Classic Il-2 Mission Builder - then we could do this regiment project some serious justice :biggrin:

 

Also, on the Mironov front, if there's anything I can help with; i.e. colour map layers from the skin I made originally, PM me or gimme a shout in the forums.

Really looking forward to the day when I can see all 16 (or even 17) individually marked aircraft in battle formation.

Thanks Johnny,

 

additional colour maps or number fonts etc would be great , i will never say no, if you want to share them :)

 

I will release the skins with the template itself (gimp file), so erveryone are free use it for additional skinning (i add more than 25 weathering layers and an updated wireframe to the skin, most with 20% transparency, when you carefully look you can see them).

Unit: unknown
Serial: unknown

During the Spring of 1942, a Soviet pilot of a regiment based in Far East defected and made a wheels-up landing near Chiasmus, in Manchukuo. The aircraft was captured by Japanese. They repaired the aircraft and started an evaluation flights cycle, whose supervisor was Major Yamamoto of the Army Test Center. These test were made from the Mutanchiang Air Base, in Manchuria. The Japanese test pilots were not satisfied with the LaGG-3's performances and flight characteristics; the difference in handling and wing load with A6M Zero and other typical Japanese fighters was enormous.

Beautiful work Pat - truly authentic feel.

 

Very attractive hand painted effect on those letters. The impact well justifies the effort.

 

Also thank you for the links to your visual references. A lot of artists (me included) are often reduced to working from either elderly colour plates or the work of scale modellers. Photographic references are priceless.
