MiG-3 Fighter (A. Pokryshkin)
« on: November 23, 2021, 03:11:33 PM »

Hello everyone, I'm looking for skins from the following plane:

ace Pokryshkin's MiG-3, number 5 or/and number 67.

















Has anyone ever done it?
Thanks in advance,

Gilles

This request got me poking around.
I knew of Pokryshkin , but not in detail.
Found an interesting link :

In 55IAP/16GIAP at 1941/42 pilots as usual used any free & ready to take off plane for missions. So,  the number of the plane doesn't matter.

The MiG-3 could not have the inscription "Гвардия"(Guards).
The regiment became Guards when it was already fighting on the Yak-1

Can't remember having seen a good Picture of Pokryshins Mig-3 other than where he is posing at his Propeller.

Wiseman: Did you speak the exact words? Ash: Look, maybe I didn't say every single little tiny syllable, no. But basically I said them, yeah.

Hi all,
After having searched and found nothing on the internet and SAS 1946 for the skins corresponding to my request ... I used existing skins and modified them somewhat ... with Paint 3D on my computer:
these skins are designed for use with the Aviaskins 3D model ... see the wonderful MiG-3 family initiated by Epizikl and Aviaskins group ... in 2011! ... and the corresponding skins by UF-Zargos and other skinners including I forgot the names ...
I fumbled around a lot and tried to make these modifications to get as close as possible to numbers 5 and 67 of the ace Pokryshkin ... it's not great but here are some images in the game:
