Stunning work man! Remind me to not take mine in to any contest you go to! LOL! Truly masterful work on display here.

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 think I made that same mistake on mine; then again, I didn't look at reference pics. I just built it.


Brilliant job once again! Thanks for the memories too.

Great finish Warren, both the paint and the details :thumbsup :thumbsup I can only hope mine comes out that nice. I agree with Christian that the intakes were kept high to avoid ingesting water. Still bears a remarkable similarity to the Martin Mariner

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

Thanks Christian! I mixed both of the paints for the body, the green and the blue, they may be a little darker or lighter than they actually should be but..... Its Russian!

Thanks Mark, if I had recalled, you did a great job on yours as well!

Thanks Gary!

At the meeting, someone had built the Minicraft Mariner and we had them side by side and they do look amazingly similar. They are practically the same dimensions. I know the Beriev was bulit around '49 well after the Mariner so I am curious how much the Mariner might have influenced the Be-6!
