    If I jump on the bandwaggon here, I think that I'll do the 1/48 Pe-2 or Pe-3. Question is though, what's the MPM/Special Hobby kits like? Never built one....

    Jan if it's like other MPM/Special Hobby kits I've built it will look great when done, but will be a lot of work to get there. The XF-85 I built for the cold war GB was Special Hobby and it was a handful!

    Right fellas, cheers! Just need to find a '13' or I'll do Mariya Dolina's and her Pe-2 from the 125th Guards Bomber Flying Regiment.....

    Maybe even Lydia Litvyak's Yak-1 or Natalya Meklin's Po-2 if you can get one in 1/48! Not short of ideas.... :lol:

    Well, since I got my hands on a Pe-2 (from Krakow, Poland), I only need to find a '13', or maybe I should do Mariya Dolina's Pe-2 from the 125th Guards Bomber Flying Regiment?

    Decisions, decisions.... :lol:

    Give it a whirl mate.

    Now if you multiply the 2 of Pe-2 by the aircraft number 5, you get 10. Now take the 2 of the Pe-2 from the aircraft 5 and you have 3. Add the 10 and 3 and you have 13, so like I say mate, give it a whirl..................:p............:p

    Well, as the Polikarpov U-2 from Gavia or Eduards Po-2 (which would have cost me 66 quid to get here from Aussieland) seem to be as easy to find as twisting horse sh*t, singing 'Let's Twist Again', I think that I'll try this one and no, haven't made my mind up yet.... :lol:

    Jan, I'm not sure about how much the profile is correct because I haven't found any pictures of the real aircraft so far.I found it in an old booklet of TBU series no.35. But it looks quite good and correct because I have seen images of similar painted Pe-2s ( for instance Blue 3 and Red 15)

    Can one find out more about Mariya Dolina's, her Pe-2 and/or 125th Guards Bomber Flying Regiment somewhere?

    The only pic I've been able to find of her plane is this one
    pe2dolina.jpg

    No luck finding anything about her beyond the regular internet search.

    I do have a color print of White 13, which was a Hurrican IIB from Lend Lease if you're interested.
