Hi Panagiotis,
for a first try to answer you can have a look here:
http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/colors/internal-colors-primers/internal-colors-primers.html
Late Il-2 with metallic wings seem to have a red brown primer inside the wings, but it is not clear if this color can be seen in the weapons bays.  Many wrecks (of previous versions) show dark green inside the flaps and, in part, into the landing gear bays.
More to come, I hope.
Regards
Massimo

Hi all,
I have started building a 1/48 Tamiya Il-2 and I intend to show a lot of interior detail. The question is: How true is the coloring in the cutaway drawing below especially in the places I have arrowed?..i.e.: fuselage tanks color, wooden fuselage interior color,wing ribs color and radiator air intake color.
Thanks a lot,
Panagiotis.

Hi Massimo,
The last Amodel Type-5 kits that I bought were exactly the same than the old one.
The only difference is in the box of the "Type -6", with skis.
Initially, there were the sprues of the type 5 and a sprue with the skies, RS 82 and specific intrados with the protection plates and holes for the RS 82 rails. So, if you built the kit with rockets , you got a "normal" intrados  for the spare box.  Grin
 As  I have done for the early type-5, it was possible to use this intrados  and a type 5 kit to make an early type wing, either for an early type-5 or a Type 4 , or even for a TsKB-12.

In the last box I bought, the "normal" intrados lacked, it was hand cut from  the type-5 sprue.  Angry
regards
Bernard

Hi Brnard,
are these things true for the type 5 too? I think that it was remade too.

Thank you Massimo,

Amodel has improved the molding technique , and corrected the majority of the shortcomings of the previous kit, unfortunately it had lost the accuracy of the fuselage  and the cowling .
Advantages:
Easier to build
Good landing gears, wheels, wheel wells ,propeller, trailing edge of the ailerons

Shortcomings
Exhaust vents have a false shape
The rear of the fuselage is far to slim , seen from above.

Regards
Bernard

Hi Bernard,
the description of the conversion work is very clear, thank you for sharing this work.  How about the new boxing, is it better than the old one?

Hi Massimo .
When I say in-line engine, it's to use one of my 50 years old Spit/Bf109/Yak...  from the scap box  to make the hypothetic I-17/I-5 .
I forgot to add one usage of the I-5, the decals. I wanted  red stars with black borders and circle and they are not in the Amodel box, but in the I-5.

Regards
Bernard
