Hi, I realized that I never saw any photos or profiles (painting schemes) of Soviet airplanes from invasion on Poland in September 1939. I mean - the true (or sure) one. I have an article on this topic from some German airplane magazine but there are photos which usually apears in other contexes. So I consider them as photos of certain types not certain machines. OK - in Polish edition of M.Maslov's book on Polikarpov R5 one profile is said to be from Poland, 1939, but in French edition of the same book, the same profile is decribed "Ukraine, 1936". Of course both could be true, but only "could". During 3 year some repairs and repaints must be done on machine with fabric cover. It is differently in case of machines from Winter War with Finland - there are some photos, but mostly done by Finns of captured Soviet machines. Anybody met or have some photos or profiles like that? Any serious publication was about it? It is said, but more is known about Nomonhan Incident in 1939... Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
