Noticed aswell those kills would be nice if you can trace the owner or at least the squad. Also of note is that strange blob underneath the wing near the insignia, would that have been something done by the ruskies? From the look it seems that it is not a downed bird but probably captured from an airfield, especially due they had the trouble to dismantle it. Would be nice to trace the region, I am guessing Leningrad front or somwhere in the Ukrain [operation Bagration]. The soviets are wearing the heavy parka [sheepskin coat] which was only used in the worst climates, which the foto really captures the feel and the worst on the Eastern front were Moscow [which I guess too early], Stalingrad, Leningrad and then Operation Bagration which started from Ukrain and ended Berlin [so we might get Polanad and Hungary into question].
Proset mate for bringing this up ...
Yes Ivan it is a bit strange because normal yellow bands were to narrow, and when it is wide it's done under the entire fuselage cross ,
about that strange blob, in my opinion it is new yellow colour try to cover some code or battle damage.
The difference that is most noticeable between F-2 and F-4 is the wheelwells , which the latter had round wheelwells instead of square (G type)...
This is going to be interesting , for the sqd most of them were JG54, but there were JG51, JG52, JG77 as well...I'm trying to remember from were I downloaded for the info..
