    Sometimes it seems that something can be done easily, but it is not true.There some of colour profiles of U-2/Po-2 bird.As far as pics of this plane are concerned I have to look for.

    Hi !!!
    There two pics of Po-2 and a colour profile.However, it seems that the the profile presents the same a/c showed in one of the two shots.Looking at these I've got impression that in the case the camo should be different from presented in the profile.But it is my opinion only.

    Yes, it is a version for passengers a bit simillar in a shape to a version for the injured transportation.The passenger kind of U-2/Po-2 was used by VIP mostly.

    Hello Bullo Loris -

    I notice that no one has yet mentioned the following comprehensive reference on the Polikarpov R-5 / R-Z:

    Wudawnictwo Militaria nr. 220 'Polikarpov R-5 / R-Z' by Mikhail A. Maslov.
    Published 2004 ISBN 83-7219-220-0

    This book contains 10 color profiles showing R-5s in Russian, Spanish Republican, Spanish Nationalist and Iranian colors. There are also about 10 or 12 line drawings of different sub-variants and two fold out 1/72 3 view drawings of 4 different versions. Polish text with an English summary.

    There are tons of photos including numerous detail shots of the landing gear, armament connections, closeups of sub-variant details such as the ambulance or limousine version, bomber verson, enclosed cockpit, skid landing gear etc etc.

    If you are interested in building a model of the R-Z or R-5, this is definitely a reference I'd recommend.

    Mike
