Yes, it is a nice shot - too bad this beautiful Yak has been disgraced with fascist markings!  Sad

Hi,
yes, in particularly, pity that no trace of the original number is visible. The repainted stars can be detected, but not the number. However, some black, white and yellow can add interest to an unusual profile.

Interesting photo of captured MiG-3 being loaded onto (off of? Or just admired on?) a barge:

Possibly useful shot of wrecked Bloch 175 (thanks, ChristianK), trying to look like a wrecked Il-4:

For some reason, I found this photo of a damaged I-16 sadly appealing:

Oops - duh! I thought the glazing on the upper nose looked wrong and the cowlings looked a bit too tapered (both points as compared to photos of *real* Il-4's), but I also thought it might be a different version of this aircraft. Thanks for the correction - I modified my post accordingly!  Cheesy

Another wrecked I-16, getting a close look-over:

although I have seen other photos of Il-2's with Yaroslavskii Komsomolets on them (single-seat and two-seat) I have not seen this particular image before.

The avia-n-aero site has been updated with 5 or 6 new pages of VVS GPW photos - here's one which includes an I-16 with unusual markings on the fin:
http://www.avia-n-aero.ru/photo.php?category_id=9&parent_id=0&photo_id=5533&countdisplay=&start=120

Here's another I-16, with a swastika imposed on the red star, although the small size suggests it's not actually painted on:
http://www.avia-n-aero.ru/photo.php?category_id=20&parent_id=0&photo_id=5551&countdisplay=&start=120

Unusual camouflage on this Il-4:
http://www.avia-n-aero.ru/photo.php?category_id=21&parent_id=0&photo_id=5576&countdisplay=&start=80

An SB, in full German markings:
http://www.avia-n-aero.ru/photo.php?category_id=27&parent_id=0&photo_id=5649&countdisplay=&start=0

Some Yaks (5 total) right at the top of the first page; poor focus, I'm afraid:

Hi,
What would be the coloring for this SB-2M-103:
http://www.avia-n-aero.ru/photo.php?category_id=27&parent_id=0&photo_id=5643&countdisplay=&start=0
http://www.avia-n-aero.ru/photo.php?category_id=27&parent_id=0&photo_id=5637&countdisplay=&start=0
http://www.avia-n-aero.ru/photo.php?category_id=27&parent_id=0&photo_id=5635&countdisplay=&start=0

Looks like light grey with possible light blue underside?
EDIT: or are the colors so faded that its in fact regular green-blue?

that's a DB-3 , not an Il-4
I'm not sure what version of the DB-3 it is,as I prefer the Il-4
(note the different shape of the nose)
