    Sorry FD. I can only find a photo of White 1 and 6 from the same time frame. Have a few more books to find and look through.

    The photo I was referring to is from the book "Luftwaffe Over Finland" from the Luftwaffe At War series.

    Not your bird but close, repainted or not finished being painted compared to your profile picture. It is interesting. Note where what looks like the third badge was and painted over on cowl.

    After finding this picture of White 6 I would have to say there is a photo of that aircraft some where. Note the emblems on this aircraft and placement though the number is wrong
