Sorry I was not clear what I meant - spinner red or OD, tail cap - red or no cap, blue or green circle under the red star, red stars on upperwings or no?

Hi,
That is why I was asking. The most boring camo is far the most probable. I communicated with I. Zlobyn, author/owner of Colibry Decals, several years ago when we discussed Pokryshkin's Cobras. May be this could interest you https://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/lendlease/p-39/misos/prof41-38520.htm

Fadeev's Cobra should be very similar to Pokryshkin's "D" Cobra, check their serial numbers on the tail:

Hi,

plane n.40 seems to have a red spinner, comparing its shade to that of the star on the fuselage.

Massimo

Hi,
Yes, white 40 (138416) has white prop spinner, but it is from 100 giap, not from 16 giap.

It seems like the blue discs are overpainted(sprayed) with US olive drab and neutral grey. Not AMT green and blue....

Thanks Misos! The link aswers my questions and beyond.



Glued the exhausts back on the engine, drilled holes in the frame and build a new engine cover. The resin cover was 1.2mm too small.....

Hi,
for your inspiration - here https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=81364&hilit=P+39+aero13 one my friend built P-39 Airacobra 1/32 from Special Hobby. Language will not help you but there is a lot of pictures showing all corections he made. You can decide whether you will apply those corrections also to your 1/48 Cobra from Eduard.

For instance - exhaust pipes should be in the middle of the engine cover:


Seems your exhaust pipes are in the upper half of the cover.

Yes you are right Misos. The engine is not fixed to the body. But for cosmetic aperance, i positioned the engine on the body  Wink

Hi,
be careful, if you lower the position of the exhaust slots, you have to check all the panels around, including the lower edge of the door.
