Jens ohhh yes Alexander, the fun is coming , the engine nacelles don't want to fit at the transition in front, I did a lot with pressure and clamps, but new engravings have to be done, that's real work
Alexander Perov Hello, thank you, colleagues.

Treehugger I am building this too, so some extra care is going into cleaning up parts and such. I am not intending to research the ideal range of authenticity, just whatever I think might be correct. I did buy some resin rocket pods, nose cannon and wheels iirc.
Else, Zvezda is apparently releasing their 1:48 version soon. Heh, I should really finish mine before the Zvezda one comes out.
Slavo Hazucha Very nicely executed job Alexander, I think that considered the losses and average time in action these planes had, the relatively mild weathering is absolutely plausible. If you mind, I would be courious how the yellowish/green stain around the bottom/tail represents? Something specific, or artistic freedom? Looking really great all over

Alexander Perov Looking at the historical photos I still got very little dirty in the area of the rear support.

Alexander Perov considering the rotation of the rear wheel while steering on the ground and grass I think such colors were possible

Slavo Hazucha I guessed so, probably a harder touchdown or "airfield quality" could lead to the rear touching ground... good job!
