Hello I'm working on a new project : the De pange second U-2 (in the Normandie's 1944 second campaign))

I will put here all the question i can have about the plane...
mister KL answer me yet about the A-14 color inside the plane, but now , I have another question...

how were the U-2's propelers painted toward 1944 ?



this green could be accurate, or black would be better?

Hi Xan,
difficult to say. Googling, one can see that postwar ones have forthemost green blades. In a museum, there is an engine with an unpainted wood prop.

I have checked books and nothing conclusive...   Sad
Black propellers are very (extremelly) rare on available photos  Huh
I would go with a green propeller.  Following two photos may help to decide:

Do we have any further information about this Po-2 (and the lady swinging (on) the propeller)?
