Hi, thanks Xan,

JP, Massimo, you can use any info from my post, but keep in mind some of my limits:
-That the photos are from the internet, so there could be possible copyright issues.
-Also my research is limited, I'm rather a modeller than a researcher, the most of the information was from the MBI book.

so Massimo is right, some more sources should be used if an article is planned to be published. Or perhaps any primary research involved.
Anyway if I can help you just let me know.

Also some of you guys might have to finnish book:
Red Stars 4 - Lend-Lease Aircraft in Russia (Red Stars, Volume 4) C-F Guest and G. Petrov (Kustanyaja, Tampere, Finland, 2002 - it could have usefull info and pictures about the Soviet Thunderbolts also.

Nice job on your model. A slight hijack on my part since we are on the 255TH. The profile posted of the Razorback has any one photos of this plane?




A book I have says the scheme is supported by photographic evidence.

The photo is in the 4th part of the Red Stars.
It is surely camouflaged but I am unsure that the photo is about this plane.
There is a stripe or a range of numbers ont he tail.

Hi Tibor,

very nice kit (velmi pekny model  Wink. I very like camo fading and weathering. One can get a very good idea how also Airacobras could look like.
I really appreciated your approach to US national marking repainting on the fuselage and underwing:

On the right side of the 2nd photo / left underwing / some lighter color is visible under the star, AMT-7  overpaint?
And AMT-4 on fuselage?

Tibor,

this is wonderful how you've weathered yor P-47. Shocked
The color differencies are very subtle and good.
This is one of the best weathered P-47 I've seen and yes I'm direct a fan from your work. Cheesy
I've sent you a PM.

 Very nice work indeed! I like both the painting which is very well done, but also all the subtle weathering, give this special air to the model.

 One question though, about the camouflaged P-47:

A book I have says the scheme is supported by photographic evidence.

 Was there really an aircraft painted in this scheme, or is it a misunderstood play of light and shadow on the background?

Hi Panayotis,
I think it's really camouflaged, even if I am not sure that the drawing is exact. I would say... defendable. However I would follow better the pattern of the Lavochkins.
