Hi,
while looking for other info I found at http://coollib.com/b/269221/read


"Довольно необычно окрашенный СБ-2, зима 1941/42 г.г. Необычность камуфляжа заключается в его регулярности. Почти уверенно можно сказать, что пятна сделаны темно-зеленой и коричневой краской. Такой камуфляж появился осенью 1941 года на старых самолетах."
Translated:
The unusually painted SB-2, the winter of 1941/42. Camouflage is unusual is in its regularity. Almost confidently, it can be said that the stains are made of dark green and brown paint. Such camouflage appeared in the fall of 1941 on old aircraft.

Hi Misos,
the shadow of the wing on the lower part of fuselage should be curved in the opposite way. Please, check with a model.

the photo of plane 4 is interesting, it could be an example of the rare camo of the spring 1941.
I wonder if the lower surface is black; usually, planes on the snow have the lower surface only in slight shadow because of the light reflected by the snow, but this one seems black.

Hi Massimo,
thank you for comment. However, I am not sure about those shadows. I would check it latter, if there is a time enough.
Here is work in progres on the top view:

EDIT: finished profile is in my post below.

Nice work on the top, Michal! Massimo, regarding the underside of that SB, by the winter of 41/42 I believe the Soviets were already using the SB at night, because of their terrible losses during day attacks, so black undersides is certainly a possibility. It looks black to me.

Hi Misos,
good drawing again.
Hi Jason, I like this SB with black undersurfaces and unusual camouflage that could be very nice as a profile.
Regards
Massimo
