Hi,
Here are the final photos of my Su-2 build. All the wheel and bay covers were thinned to look more realistic.The middle canopy is clear styrene sheet. The model will later be integrated in a big diorama. Many thanks to Massimo Tessitori for his great help. Hope you like it. Any kind of comment is welcome.
Cheers,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
a very beautiful model indeed. Built and painted in very accurate way. What mix do you use for the dark washing?
I've only two things to say: the light parts at the wingroots should be bare metal, not white; besides photos suggest that the number 8 was of a light color, I suggested light blue but it could have been another one.
Regards
Massimo

Massimo and Warhawk thanks a lot for your comments! Smiley

Massimo, in the movie scene with the three Su-2s there seemed to be another light mark at the wing root front just below the engine so I guessed it could have been white. In any way I do not question your suggestion. As for the '8' most likely it must have been a very light blue, but..I was quite lazy and tired to tamper with the red color of the decal I used.
Regards,
Panagiotis.

Hi Panagiotis,
I see, the availability of decals is a strong reason.
Excellent work anyway.

Excellent work on that Su-2! That's a very interesting camouflage.

Hi,
very nice build. However, I am bit surprised by green-brown camouflage. What paints were used on the real plane? I suppose green Aii3 and light blue Aiig. But what is that brown one?

Hi Misos,
the plane is an interpretation of a famous movie showing a plane of difficult interpretation, clearly not uniform green nor black-green (there is another black-green plane on the movie allowing a comparation).
A Russian monograph represents the strange color as a shade of grey. It is possible that it was AMT-1 or something similar.
The discussion is here (I have to split and reorder that topic)
