John, I believe mine is in the mail. It will be interesting comparing it to Brengun's offering. What's the old saying about you wait around for a bus for an hour, and then two show up at the same time?

Best Regards,

Jason

The Arma site is now showing "Add to basket" instead of "Preorder" for both the Expert kit and the overtrees, so shipment of existing preorders must be imminent.

John

Woo hoo - per the latest email from Arma titled "It happened today":
"It was an hour ago when we pushed over one hundred parcels to Polish Post Van. First orders of Yak kits are on the way. Our personnel also works on Saturday to prepare as many parcels as possible for delivery. The third part of preorders is already sent today. When all of them is dispatched, we will start supplying shops and distributors."

Is is original Neutral Grey only looking like light blue due to particular light conditions/camera setup at Ilmatorjuntamuseo, Finland (note well known "Silver 26" in the background), or is it repainted by VVS light blue AMT-7 or A-28m?

Hi Misos,

I have seen this hyprid-Airacobra (fuselage from "26", wings from another and fin and rudder from third one) many times before, during and after the restoration. Camouflage colours are original US colours with overpaintings with some unknown colours. I'm living maybe 30 kilometers from the current location of it.

Cheers,

AaCee

Hi, can one of the specialists from this site help me with the following? Researching colours and markings for use in IL-2 Sturmovik and have lots of problems with dating / assigning skins to units and pilots. Last one is the P-39N of Maj. Vasili Sirotin, according to the desription he is in 17 IAP. Only according to PGMonsters site http://wio.ru/simbols/iap.htm the 17th IAP was renamed to 485 IAP in Januari '42. This 485th was renamed to 72 GIAP in March '43. And only in June '43 was this unit operational on the P-39. Hope someone can shed some light on this or point me to a non-Russian book that explains these matters.

Hi pg_monster,

thanks a lot for correction. I am also not here every day/week, therefore my a late response.

1. White 24 - I sent you my e-mail addres via Messages at this forum. Photo showing "white 24" with 14 starlets without shield would be very helpfull.
    Other questions:
2. White 21 - do you have a photo showing Shikunov's Cobra without Gvardia emblem?
3. White 111 - yes, typo - 21 besides of 211,
4. White 67 - why do you think that "V" was orange or zellow, but not red?

Regards,
   66misos


Hi,
I sent it.
Also I used some your cool profiles (prefer few early versios) at http://ava.org.ru/iap/211g.htm. If you want to add any watermarks or something, just tell me.
and added 2 fotos of №93 (spirale spinner).

Hi Massimo.

Yes. It's a colourized copy of one of the previous images, the one with Korolev, Lyushin and Artseulov. Would have been glad to find it was original, tough  Grin

So much to find yet about early soviet paints!

Thanks for your help on this topic.

Best regards,

Javier.

Hi Javier,
the question is interesting.
You've found a very nice image, but it is colorized on a bw base, certainly not an original color photo.
The guy that colorized it hardly had more informations than you; I think that his choice was a guess.
Silver and light blue is likely enough, in absence of other informations; I don't think that it was the same light blue of military planes, but something glossy and pastel.
Regards
Massimo

Hi chaps!

Long time not entering the forum. Hope you're all doing well. I returned to two of my old loves, gliders and scratch-building. Didn't know about Sergei Korolev's stint as a glider designer and got pleasantly surprised by his designs. I'm finding it hard to settle the colour of the SK-5. There were two schemes, the first one allegedly in red and yellow (very much like the SK-3); the second one is a mistery for there's no mention of it anywhere. Just the one I want to portray, since it will make a nice counterpoint to the SK-3 when I get to build it.

First scheme - Red and yellow:





The second one:





Could it be Silver and Azure Blue? i don't recall grey being used at the time. And silver dope looks greyish in many a photo of the era.

It's a mistery I want to unravel, if at all possible.

Thanks in advance!

P.S./

Just when you post something, you find another picture you didn't know  Cheesy Could it be the Blue Grey used from 1927 to '37? Or a very light blue?



Food for thought.
