My next project is an I-16 type 4, at 1/48!
This is thanks to a Spanish friend we did all a transkit starting from a Eduard Type 10!
so I would like to talk (again I know) about the 1925/1937 VVS colors.
Particulary about the green color.
When i did a spanish type5 we share information in this forum.
at the moment what I know about this green is that:
official document just talk about green color nothing more.
Konstantin told me (if I am not wrong), that it 's admit this green was close to German RLM 83
for comparaison here are the gunze H423 for RLM 83 on spanish I-16, and akan AII green in the Chinese I-16
Konstantin or anyone else could tell me in why people think this green was close to RLM 83 ? Does Orlov say something about that?
this is given as a I-16' fabric part found in Spain.
Could it be a type 5 piece? cause the color is quite close to RML 83...
Second point in the 1934/1937 phase, cowling were genrally paint in black (RZ natacha, I-15, I-16, first mig-3)
was it systematic ?
After 1937 the cowling were no longer painted in black.
I mean if the cowler is painted in green as the fuselage, can we deduce the plain have been painted after 1937 and so the green is the new AII green color?
Last think, Akhanine who is knowed to be quite accurate for VVS color, only proposes one green for 1925/1941 period in his paint set and so does not make diference between the two greens...
