Hi Massimo,
Plenty of work on my model with all the necessary things for a 88-B conversion already done. The spray work has reached to this point. The 1st photo is purposely B&W as I want to show that the green on the fuselage looks much lighter in the photo. Could eventually the dark shade in the original plane be black after all? Undecided
Do comment on the color shades in the second photo please.

Regards
Panagiotis.

I wonder if they thought to make a late Il-4 with arrow wings and kept the outer consoles of the wings separed for this reason.
No, did not plan. IL-4 from the star is the good old Alpha. And the wings are made separately because Alpha was not able to shed more details.

Hi Panagiotis,
you can blur the image, it will be more readable.
I don't see any white on the wings. I think that they are camouflaged as the fuselage. In some photos the tip of the right wing looks light.
Besides the plane is surely painted with some more shades of grey (?), perhaps it depends only on the thickness of the paint layer or retouches.
 The pattern of the closer wing should be readable from the photos.
I am not sure that black is still visible. Comparing to the plane 1 on the background, all the dark shade seems green. I don't assure that this is true for all the plane.
These planes appear in a wartime movie, so if you look for on Youtube it could be that you find more.
I don't think that the light things on the fuselage is snow, on a flying plane. It's more likely that they are metal scratches.
The spinner could be not red-black but grey-green. It is not demonstrable with our sources.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
I tried to make a clearer photo of the red ''8''



the thin grey(?) lines separating the upper grey with the lower green/black scheme are quite clear

there also seems to be a trace of snow at the wing root below the canopy and this trace has been depicted in this profile which is very clear now



which may mean that the upper wings were covered in temporary white overspray? 

Lastly, trying to reach to a conclusion as this weekend I'll spray the final scheme,..please correct me where you find appropriate.. Wink

-I spray the spinner red and black as you suggest and I think you're right

-I paint the thin lines a very light grey or white (and not light brown)

-I scratch a viewfinder on the Shkas MG as it appears on the profile just above

-I spray a little temporary white overspray on the upper wings,(this must be quite a risk I suppose) Undecided

-I'll finally risk opening the ventral hatch like that



Thanks a lot for your help once again.. Smiley

Cheers,

Panagiotis

Hi Panagiotis,
both profiles are relative to the same plane, and both are wrong in some ways. It is at pag.65 of a Russian monograph on Su-2. The same monograph has  a profile nearly identical to what you have already shown.
The profile with grey (?) bands has to be corrected:
there are thin lighter lines between the supposedly grey bands and the darker ones, more or less as shown in the other profile; I can suppose that they are white or light grey;
the spinner doesn't seem in solid color to me; I thnk that the front half could be red, while the rear half could be black.
Have you the possibility to find that photo?
Here is another one on the web. Here the light thin lines are less visible


I would add that the number doesn't seem red, it could be white or light blue.

Regards
Massimo

Old news one might say but AFAIK not published here yet.

The crash site of an Italian made and Soviet operated Savoia-Marchetti S.55 which was lost in the Khabarovsk region in 1935 was found in 2015.

Here are the relevant photos.



And this is what the Vector cowling does to its own engine Cheesy



As it is I'm still looking for an unusual Su-2 88-B profile..

This looks really good..

Hi Tiso,
Quote
I have a distinct feeling tha Zvezda Il-4 is only Maquette kit with rescribed panel lines and little cleaned up. I have Maquette DB-3 and Zvezda Il-4 kits and are almost identical.
I had read about this. Unfortunately the DB-3 is both rare and poor. Probably the Il-4 of Zvezda could be roughly adapted to DB-3 with few pieces.
They preserved the scomposition of the wings that was thought to replace the engines (I suppose) for the DB-3, but didn't make this version.
I wonder if they thought to make a late Il-4 with arrow wings and kept the outer consoles of the wings separed for this reason.
Regards
Massimo
