    1/48 Polikarpov U-2 VVS by EDUARD and code, ED1112.
    Found one at Stanbridges Hobby Shop in Perth, Aussieland....
    Hopefully everything with the bank should be sorted (and my inspiration back) before the end of this GB, so that I can decide what to do, a Pe-2 or a 'Nightwitches' Po-2....
    If these guys will have any left...:lol:

    Question is though, is the Po-2 and U-2 the same machine, if not, what's the difference?

    The kit in question....

    U-2 and Po-2 are the same machine.

    I was thinking this would be an excellelent subject for the GB and look forward to seeing this one come together.

    The name of Po-2 was given to the U-2 after Polikarpov's death in 1944, as momo serves. The plane was also assembling in Poland after the war and named CSS-13. For the medical rescue S-13.

    Not sure if this will help you Jan. I like to use it from time to time as a guide to source material. The website itself lists all aces known in WW2. Many seem to have other web pages attached to them. Hope it helps. :)
