Hi Misos,
looks good.
I suppose that the shades could be darker, being built before 1936.

Hi Massimo,
thank you. Regarding colors here are possible alternatives from http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/colors/color-table.html


“Zashchitnyi”* khaki , Upper surfaces - metal (TB-1, TB-3, R-6) or fabric/wood (R-5, U-2), 1927-1937


3B dark green, oil Army paint, sometimes used on metal planes (TB-3), 1933-37


AE-7 (zashchitnyi) gloss camouflage green, overall uppersurfaces of metal planes, Oil enamel, Specification issued in 1936-37

"My" plane was during VVS already several years old, so paint could be weathered or whatever else. It is something between khaki and dark green, looks like darker AE-7 sample.

Hi Misos,
I am not sure, but I would choose the second one.
The shade of AE-7 is not known yet, I think that it's very dark, could be that it is as army 3B.
The undersurfaces should be rather dark too.  I guess something as AMT-7 or a bit more greyish.

Hi Massimo,
so I changed both green and blue color. Here is the corrected profile:



For comparison I left also previous one in my post above in the meantime. I will delete it latter to have only one, correct profile. Thank you.

Hi Misos,
great photos. Pity that the relict is uncomplete, a restoration would have been great.
I don't see traces of paint inside the structure, even where the metal is protected to rain and sun.

Hi Massimo,
all interior parts look to me like unpainted either oxided alluminium or zinced steel. Note also unpainted coroded steel parts. There are no traces of the yellowish primer and steelgrey A-14.
