correct location of "Xan's panel B" on I-15bis



Torches are broken off, part of the red star painted on fabric has been cut out by souvenir hunters.

Not bad, AO-25 is probably very small.

A suggestion:
First ring is too thick - actually there wasn't a ring; only a step.  AO-25 was made from rejected artillery shells.  "Nose" of the bomb should look like a projectile.

For painting - first coat was light blue, second coat was gray-green (1950es standard, but probably practiced earlier).

Happy modeling,
KL

I totally agree with you...

The AO-25 repects the numbers you given me. Perhaps the FAB-50 is undersized ?

What do you mean? I took this pic in reference to do the noise...

Ok it's the green you talked about?

Bombs were painted in anticorosive gray colour.  Fragmental bombs had 15mm wide blue line around the cyllinrical part of the body.

I thought they were metallic color as this FAB-100:



have you any example of this green gray ?

Size of your AO-25 is OK.  I meant it's small for more/better details.  Smiley

Front half of the bomb should look like an artillery shell (a big bullet  Wink), your (1st, thick) ring obscures its shape.

FAB-100 was painted metallic silver at the museum, it's not its original colour.

"Gray-green (sero-dikaya)" and "1st coat blue" are visible here:

Really looks great! Now you can start molding these bombs in resin, and getting rich by selling them!  Wink
