Hi Remco,
I-230 saw limited activity. It could be more difficult than I-210, I've the impression that the structural differences were deeper despite the same engine. I think that it will require a new widened canopy, a new ventral cooler, modifications to the tail and a new landing gear, apart for the obvious lenghtening of the fuselage.

The I-230 is indeed to difficult to build. Tonight i am going to spray the aluminium (again).

Hey guys,

Everthing went perfect! Small question. The red stars under the wings, were they black outlined or just red?

Hi Remco,
very nice paint job. However I am surprised with such big unpainted/NMF areas. Is that according to the real plane? Could you post a photo?

Hi Remco, hi Misos,
I like how the model is coming.
The aluminium areas have to be intended as aluminium painted, not as natural metal.

Hi Massimo,
Do you mean silver "serebrjanka" discussed in the thread about colorizing winter Il-2. http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=1799.msg15562#msg15562
Pilot had to have it difficult with such big shining area just in front of him, especially with reflections during sunny days. He could not see anything with sun ahead.
I would say it was dirty white and play of light. Note how darker looks wing and horizontal stabilizer upper surface.

Hi Misos,
it's true that shining is unpleasant for a pilot, but Soviet planes of late '30s were often painted silver without any antiglare panel, so it's possible that this one was so too, as it looks. I don't think that there are multiple shades of white on this plane. The uppersurfaces were not more lightened than the undersurfaces because they received the light of the sun, but not the light reflected by the snowy surface.
I wonder if the back of the prop blades was black, but it doesn't seem.

No worries Massimo! If i wanted to paint it perfect natural aluminium, i had to put on a gloss coat first. Now it looks painted on. And i still have to weather it. So i am no that concerned  Cheesy

I just put on the decals, i wil post some photos soon!

Hi Remco,
the elevator with inverted painting, you mean?
Well, I've always thought that light blue bands could be camouflaging on a snowy background.

Hi massimo,

It was a funny thing. I tried to fit one of the elevator (the wrong one ofcourse), and it would fit badly. I was a bit mad, becouse it always fited while testing. So, i got the right one and hold them thoughetter and found the problem  Cheesy

I corrected the parts and sprayed them right. I hope tomorrow i can put on the gloss coat.

Regards,

Remco
