Very nice work, Xan!  That's what we need more of on this site, people showing their models (I'm as guilty as others in not showing my work - I suppose I'll have to change that).

Regards,

Wow! Looks Great. Kit allso looks well engineered,better than Special Hoppy one. That kit for sure is not a nice afternoon stick-it-together session.  This could be better subject for modelers with a deficit of patience,like me.
Anyway, nice to see modelpics here. I-15bis  is not a common sight. Beautiful.

Surely well made and pleasant. Both the model and its base are realistic and well detailed. The crew is extremely well painted for the scale. Just, that poor technician... will someone come to help him when he'll have to load the 50 kg bomb?

Wonderful work Xan. I agree with the others that I would like to see more build threads like yours. The discussions about paint colours are interesting and useful, but so much more so when done in the context of a model under construction. I am working on a couple of non-Soviet models at the moment, but I'll try do contribute here myself when I work on my next Soviet model.

Now for a completely different question: How in the world did you create that wonderful grass seen on your base? What did you use as material and, in particular, how did you place the tufts of grass standing up?

Regards,
Bennie

This reminds me: I recently read "Over Fields of Fire: Flying the Sturmovik in Action on the Eastern Front 1942-1945" by Anna Timofeeva-Egorova (by the way, highly recommended). In it she often praises the hard working female armourers. It seems that many of the technicians and armourers were, in fact, female. It gives me some interesting ideas for displaying my next model...

It's true, Bennie.  In photographs of what are otherwise male regiments (the pilots and gunners are male), you'll often see women loading bombs and gun belts.

There should be more people.  Say 2-3 armourers...

"Podveska bomb" (hanging the bombs  Huh) was one of the favourit themes for propaganda photographers, even artists






Photo is staged, there are too many people around, but you may get the idea.  Note the "two shoulder method"

Konstantin, do you have a bigger version of the R-Z painting - I'd like to be able to see the engine details better.  As far as the Polikarpov SSS, I didn't realise it took 15 men to rearm one!  The Nazis shouldn't have bombed any of those at the start of Operation Barbarossa; every time the Soviets rearmed them it would have immobilised the entire Red Air Force!

Hi,
Beautiful color drawing indeed, thank you for posting. I wonder if the blue represents only reflection on a gloss black surface.

Thank you, Konstantin!  I was wondering about the engine colours also, Massimo - that's why I wanted a better look.  It does look like the engine block is bright blue, with black cylinders, and the propeller appears to be polished metal.  Interesting.
