Hi,
strangely, both photos seem to show something similar to a rough star in an unusual position under the slided hood.

Glad you guys like my photo finds.
Here's another one - a nice and clear Tu-2 photo popped-up on r/WWIIplanes
very interested to hear your thoughts on the cammo colors.



Pay close atention to the boxes on the ground (around aircrafts tail)
IT THAT SERIOUSLY HOW THEY SHIPPED THE PROPS IN THOSE DAYS???

Hi,
this is a very sharp version of a known photo, thank you for sharing. I think that it was taken in factory in 1942 and shows very early Tu-2.
The camouflage should be black and green, but I think that the most evident dark areas are shadows due to the low sun. It is not even possible to be sure that it was camouflaged. A red star is visible on the tail.
Nice point about the boxes.

Fully agree. Also, of particular interest is the tail, which is far gloss-ier than the rest of the airframe.
Frozen, or freshly repainted, maybe?

Nice point about the boxes.

I guess the props were sent to the front in one piece to save the ground crew some valuable time.
Still, wouldn't like to be the comrade in charge of loading those into a rectangular trailer or a boxcar  Grin

Hi Massimo, in this photo, it's not the Tu-2 at all, but the 103V prototype. You're right it has no camo, it is shadows and photo defects. You shouldn't take this picture for any reference, the plane is unique with many differences from production aircraft.

What confuses you, the Russians did not come up with this. For the С-47, there is a standard USA equipment for transporting 2 assembled propellers on an external sling.

No confusion, I just find the shape of boxes funny.
I would expect them to look more like a equal-sided triangle with chamfered corners.

Just imagine the physical size of an average spinner, and how many planks it will take to pack it the way you think.
