Hi,
here is my profile of the AR-2:



It should represent this captured AR-2 from the summer 1941:

Hi Misos,
good work, as usual.
I never noticed that thin red line on the tail. Is it shown on other photos?
Regards

Hi Massimo,
thank you. Smiley I have noticed that red line only on that photo of that particular aircraft. It looks like unit recognition marking.

This one has no red line, but probably colored (red?) trim and cap (red?, yellow?) on the tail:

Hi Misos,
I guess glossy red, which reflects the sky.

Hi all,

There are at least a couple of other pictures of #3 from different angles. Based on them I would say both the trim and fin tip to be standard green.

Cheers,

Hi All,
thanx for watching and comments.
The more I look at the photo on "white 4", the more I start to think that it is not red line, only shining on the fixing wire between horizontal and vertical stabilizer. Huh

Hi Misos, hi AC
I agree, it is a wire visible on other photos too.
I think that the light blue part under the fillet of the stabilizer should be more angular.
Regards
Massimo
