This profile is based on a photo of a plane of 7 IAP, Leningrad front, October 1941.
 



from Red Stars

The characteristics seem to be:
  • early type MiG-3, probably without slats;
  • without radio mast and equipment;
  • faded black/green (or dark green/green) base camo, with evident repaintings of fresh black and green;
  • the white 42 seems to have a darker inner part, that could be red as the red star (that appears very light on the photo);
  • the spinner looks black and white, as many other planes on the Leningrad area;
  • white code number visible on the stabilizer and rudder, over the tail star.
