Hi,
@Massimo, I browsed Google and Rusdian Yandex, but I cannot find any photo of grey-grey camo. I found Tu-2T only in standard 3-color camo.

@Ochotnik,  thank you for link. The first one, Tu-2 "10", looks nice with Hungarian tricolore (red-white-green) on the spinner. What color is on the tip of the spinner - red or green?
And, of course, I will correct the stars - little green circle in the middle and white outline.
Regards,

Hello Missos!

I am not sure that at the spinner had the national colours, but if it was than the first was red.

Hi,
here are photos of Hungarian Tu-2 from the link provided by Ochotnik:


We can see that on the Russian profiles above is except incorrect Hungarian marking also incorrect font of "53".



I finally decided for "10" - it has after-war four-blades propeller, very probably one big circular window on the rear fuselage and (IMHO) nice tricolora on the spinner:

Hi Misos,
the photo seems to show plane 10 without defensive armament. The border between green and blue should be a bit revised on the nacelle, both forward and behind the wing. I would move the 10 a bit backwards.

Hi Massimo,
IMHO it has armament. Rear top gun cover is open and IMHO gun is only turned tu side, but there is visible something.
I correcced border line between green and blue color on both nacelle and rear fuselage, plus "10" is moved a bit backwards - see picture above.
Thanks for remarks.

Let's continue with the Bulgarian Tu-2:


Photos of the original:




And photo of the description table from the museum in Bulgaria where this plane is displayed:

Hi Misos,
seems that the trim tab was present on the right rudder only.
I would lift a bit the straight part of the border between green and blue on the fuselage.

Hi Massimo,
I will try it tomorrow. That trim tam - Oh s..t! Angry Seems I should correct it on all other profiles.... Cry
In the meantime here is the last one from today - Tu-2 from Poland:



Here is original:


And here seems to be the same plane but repainted:


Here seems to be visible bottom of the tail in the different color (red like painted on other profiles?):

Hi Misos,
I think that, IF the bottom of the tail was really red, it should be higher on the rudder than on the stabilizer. On the inner side, the lower part was certainly light blue. I wonder if the right and left rudders are interchangeable.
The number 8 on the photos has changed both position and size, the drawing shows the size of the bigger one in the position of the smaller one.
The trasparent nail of the gunner's canopy looks too long and straight.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
I correct tails on all profiles. Bulagrian and Hungarian are ready, same as Poland. I made also some changes according to your comments. Only red bottom on the Polish Tu-2 I kept in the same line - see pictures above.
And in the meantime here is Tu-2 from North Korea:

Hi,
here are last two Tu-2 from Asia:

China:


Original:


and other planes:







Indonesia, originally chinese plane, only marking and btail number is repainted:


No good photo found, only this one with 4-blades propeller:


So I took some inspiration from this profile (not very correct) and from chineese plane above:

Hi Misos,
interesting profiles.
I think that the position of the rear gun should be modified, the outline of the opening appears curve in profile on its rear, not straight.

Hi Massimo,
Thanks for comment. You are right, on some photos from angle (perspective) it looks like curve. But on other photos not. It seems there were several modifications even in this part of the plane. Plus even straight line on the oval object (like fuselage) looks like curve from angle.
However, my profiles are strict side view without applying perspective. So I decided to let it as is now unless I found good line drawing of this part of Tu-2.

Hi Misos,
it looks that this is the only photo where the camo of the wings can be seen clearly.

Hi Massimo,
here is another picture of black-green top side:

When comparing with the scheme in the post above, it seems to have exchanged black and green areas.

Several day ago I posted request at VIF about grey-grey camo on Tu-2 and whether Xuntong grey-grey Tu-2 is authentic or fiction:

Surprisingly there is no response untill now.

However, here is photo of Tu-2T with the torpedos under wings:


and it quite nicely fits to this factory 3-color scheme:
