I've been poking along on this and am trying to get things finished up before Wednesday of this week. That's the completion day for this challenge build at my club.

I've been taking pics and will post them later this week!

stay tuned! :popcorn

That was quite accurate Paul!! I did get it finished on time (just) and we had our little contest. I didn't win but came in 4th.

Anyway, here are the pics!

I removed the rudder and replaced it with a home made one that looked more accurate

One of my reference photos showed the plane had landing lights in the wings so I added those

Also, I think I mentioned, Trumpeter must have copied this model off the Be-6 they have preserved with turbo prop engines. This kit has the radials but they left the exhausts for the turbo props! I added the vents that should be there.

The landing lights (made these from finger nail details)

Looking better!

Painting!!!

Pre-shading!

Painting the boots!

I tried to do some different shading in the paint to give it a used/weathered look.

All the tape pieces I used several times in the painting process!

Exhausts on the nacelles

undersides, I forgot to mention that the fit of this kit is so good that I was able to paint the wings separately from the body and then attach them (might have noticed that from the images!)

stickers! I used a few of the kit decals, which were good but a little fragile, and some from an old Accurate Miniatures IL-2 kit

I have no doubt you're correct but man those motors look upside down.

Looks great Warren! :popcorn

One mistake I made with this kit (noticed after I finished), the little exhaust on the port side near the back (seen in this image) isn't supposed to be there (keep an eye out Gary when you build yours!!).

the one directly above the rudder

It must have been added with the Chinese turbo prop version because it wasn't on the reference pics I saw or the surviving one in Russia.

Wish I had noticed sooner!! :bangs head

I like it Warren . It looks much better than all the box art i've seen.

I suspect the engines look strange because they were trying to keep them out of the sea spray .

Saying that it's Russian will explain a lot of things :rotf

Cheers, Christian
