    That would be MT-461 in which he claimed 8 victories....will see what I got...it had R6 underwing cannons and Erla-Haube canopy

    The image Beau has shown is the best for MT-461 not much to offer.....however MT-461's W.Nr was 165342, so...next closest was 165347 which was MT-465 this in fact provides a representation of MT-461 "Yellow 6' which was located on the fin.

    Also a profile of MT-461
