Hi Massimo,
Here is a photo of the sprayed cockpit. the area is not washed yet. As you can see I just sprayed ALG-1 in certain areas while the seat is aluminium. Your opinion when you can.Especially on the shade of the primer.
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
the shade of the ALG-1 is credible, it was not strictly standardized but resembles the one I have seen on photos of Pe-2. Personally I think that ALG-5 grey-green is more likely on steel, but who knows?
The work is very nice anyway.
Regards
Massimo

Very nice work on that interior. I have to admit to being a bit lazy and painting the interiors on my Il-2s in A-14 Steel Grey using Testors MM Neutral Gray.

Best Regards,

Jason

Hi guys,
Thanks a lot for your comments on my work! Smiley
I've gone even further with cutting panels.I've reached to this point..



I'd like to ask about the shade of the unpainted wood of the rear fuselage.Which of the two would you pick?



or VIAM B3?



also another question on the primer of what colour should use for the structure under the skin in wing area.  I assumed Russian use ALG-1 for over the whole plane as primer then spay A-14 grey over it.  How about the wing ribs and spars under the skin.  ALG-1 only? or ALG-1 + A-14?

And last but not least..I lack photo ref in the gun bay panels.In other words the mounting of the wing guns.Photos like the following are not sufficient..



Hey Massimo..take your time and give me your lights!.. Smiley

Happy New year to everyone!
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
the wrecks of 1942/43 seem to show green (ALG-5) or unpainted inside. Wrecks of 1944/45 seem to show some red brown primer, but I can't be sure that it was so in general or inside the gun bays. I would go with ALG-5.
About wood, you could use an half shade. I suppose that they had to utilize some protective, you could make a dark wash over a light base.
I don't know if this can be called 'light', i suppose that 'guess' would be more appropriate.
The work is coming out good and clean.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo and a Happy New year to everyone,
All the following images have sth in common,



the wooden base on which the Mikulin engine stood on the Il-2s. I'd like to ask if that was the case with other ww2 USSR planes and if possible you can find for me some more photos of this base in order to show it in my model.
Massimo, thanks again for your previous reply,
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
that brown thing is a steel frame, somewat rusty. Not wood in the engine compartment.

Hi Massimo,
Good to know that. I'd swear it was wood. Tongue

Hi Panagiotis,
it is necessary to confirm that it was present when the engine was mounted on. It could be only a jig used in building the metal frame.

Hi Massimo,
Thanks a lot for the information. I was going to make one if it hadn't been for you. Sad

Hi Panagiotis,
it is surely a jig. If you see the mounting of AM-35 and 38, it needs to protrude its lower part between the supports, below them.

Hi Massimo,
Another question for you. Here's the photo.



As far as I know it's a device used to hoist bombs onto the bomb bay. What I don't know is how the rope-or the wire- of this device was connected to the bomb itself. Should there not be an open bomb bay cover just below the cockpit? I may sound naive but I intend to show the device and the hoisting wire in my cutaway project.
Cheers,
Panagiotis.
