Sukhoi Su-2 M-88B Zvezda/Vector1/48

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!
I want to present you several new models of soviet aircraft. First will be the new "Zvezda" kit - Su-2 bomber. It`s a nice kit, but it needs some
work on the mistakes. Also i use Vector resin conversion sets and make M-88B modification and wheels from ZIP. I do not dwell on assembly process, but you can see it on some photos. Some parts in cockpit and wheel bays were added and modified. I made the lower turret, scribed some new panel lines and so on.

As a prototype I chose an airplane from the 288 bomd sqadron, which was depicted on the newsreels in winter of 1941-1942. That plane had very interesting paintscheme with traces of removed winter paint. I used hair-spray technique to make it on the model.

Very realistic and logically true. Congratulations again, Ivan. This is a new step in your evolution as a great modeller! I still have to learn the winter camouflage. Yesterday I learned that you said "hairspray technology" is absolutely identical to use the "Heavy chipping liquid" from AK.

- You have done a terrific job, I built and posted mine a few days ago , I know the difficulties you may have met, my main problem was the turret. I opened too and more generaly with all the transparencies . I saw a panel engraved under the fuselage I didn't it was for an under fuselage defensive position, your model is truly excellent........

Thanks for all the feedback!

IPMS19 (sorry, I don`t know your name), I saw your model, and it is very nice. I too had problems with turret - it was impossible to make it closed. But it is my mistake because I saw many models with closed turret. About under fuselage defensive position - I took information from this photos and schemes.

It will be interestin to see the result. I can give you some information about SU-2 that migth be useful to build this kit.


Su-2 looks similar with many WWII light bombers. For example like slim Avenger :D
