Title: Su-2 profile
Post by: 66misos on May 04, 2017, 05:05:39 PM
Hi,
here I started work on Su-2 M-88 profile:
(http://modelforum.cz/download/file.php?id=1302824)

So far either this nice black-green camo, but unfotunately without board/tail number:

or this a bit boring solid green, but it has also board/tail number:

are favorite options for camouflage.

Hi Misos,
if you want to draw all the main versions, I suggest that the most representative painting is the prewar style whith green uppersurfaces, reserving the black-green livery for the more recent types.
Even the silver/grey livery is possible for early Su-2, but it was rare.
The plane of which you show the photos is well documented, but unfortunately it is the only one that follows this pattern. The camo pattern on Su-2 seems to change strongly fromplane to plane.
Regards
Massimo

Hi,
I would reconsider the shape of the nose. The profile doesn't resemble to the photo perfectly.

Hi Massimo,
thank you for comment. In the meantime I finished solid green version according to you advice. The shapes are according to the line drawings I have found on the net. So may be line drawings were not perfect. However on other photos the cowling looks quite similiar to the line drawing. ???

EDIT: profile deleted, see next one below.

Hi Misos,
the border between green and blue looks a bit soft. I think that it was made straight with tape, at least on other types.
On MiG-3, it was sharp on the metallic parts and blurried on the rear fuselage.

Massimo

Hi Massimo,
thank you for remarks. here is corrected profile:
- sharp demarcation lines between green and blue colors,
- engine cowling a bit reworked to make it a bit more round at top front:

Hi Misos,
this looks very good. Will you draw profiles of other versions too?
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
thank you, I am glad you like it (them). Currently I have to draw basicaly one profile per plane. Still many ahead, so I have no time to draw something else. I hope sometime latter.
