Hi Panagiotis,
I think to see two small holes under the wheels and the wire going into them. Probably it makes a loop under the bomb.
The plane in the photo is an Il-10.

Hi Massimo,
Here's the same device on a Il-2



while it looks a bit different on a Su-2



Perhaps the two holes are those marked below



and two visnaps





Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
this is a page of Il-2 Shturmovik of Viktor Povinsky.
You can see how the bomb is connected to the wire.


You can also see images of the open bays full of bomblets.

Hi Massimo,
Thanks a lot for the ref photos. They are very helpful. At the moment I'm scratching a PTAB-2 container. As it seems I'll have to guess where the holes to the bomb bay would be. I'll stick to the marked ones I posted in the photo in my previous post. I've found Yandex.ru is a great help for my read-up.😊
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
a bomblet container? The text says that they were discontinued  on late planes, and the bomblets were loaded directly into the bays from above.

Hi Massimo,
You're right as always, truth is I didn't read the text. I'll see what I can do with the container. Wait for a bunch of wip photos to comment on them.
Cheers,

Hi Massimo,

Just a clarification..
A ptab-2 container and a Small bombs cassette (KMB) are the same thing?
Thanks,
Panagiotis

Hi Pamagiotis,
I'm not sure, but looks likely.

Hi Massimo,
Here's a photo of the progress so far.



I've also scratched the VYa-23 cannons and the Shkas machine guns.



 A question now..Were the ammunition boxes of the VYa-23 cannons the same size and shape on the metallic wings as they were on the wooden ones?

Cheers,

Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
did you scratchbuild the weapons?
About the ammo for 23 mm... I don't remember well, but someone said that the ammo were loaded directly into the bays because there was no longer space for boxes after having added swept to the wing. I am not sure that it was so for the wooden wings though.

Hi Massimo,
You mean there wasn't a separate box which could be removed from the gun bay. I'm sure there was one in each wing for both the MGs and the cannons on the wooden variants. So let's say the ammo box for the cannon and possibly the MG were fixed on the bays(?)..
Yes, I made the weapons myself and also quite a lot of cartridges for the cannon. I'm thinking of making a couple of cutaway cartridges too.. Smiley
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
if you are sure about the boxes, probably the thing of direct loading is for the metallic wing variant only, that has its hatch broken into two smaller ones.
Cutaway cartridges? I'll wait to see them.

That is some impressive work! I wanted to do something like this on my Hobby Boss 1/32nd scale Il-2, but due to time constraints (I was doing it for an article), I was only able to 'super-detail' the cockpit and engine. The hatches over the 23-mm cannons that were one piece on the straight-winged Il-2s, and the wooden-winged arrows, were in two pieces on the metal-winged arrows.

Best Regards,

Hi,
The first of the two Il-2s (the OOB one) has been painted mostly with Akan paints and awaits its final completement. The profile is one of Massimo's picks and I have not seen it done by other fellow modellers..
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
looks very interesting.  But are you sure to keep the paint so faded and irregular?
Regards
