    Hi Mate,

    Unfortumately these tonalities of colours depend on a period of time/year etc...Could you give us more details about your MiG-3?

    Or have a look at the site.

    MiG-3 family

    Hi all.
    I know there has been some discussions about Russian colours and the greens in particular on different web forums. Here's a link to a Norwegian site (in English though) about aircraft wrecks. Check out the green camo on this Ilyushin bomber.

    Hello to everyone Happy Holidays wherever you might be!

    Am in the process of modeling one of my older models (began back in the 60's but had to stop during my marriage, long story), this one being a Russian Beriev MBR-2. However, after viewing the rather poor B&W photos online, the difficult to verify art on "Wings Palette," as well as looking through my own library of mag's and books, there's nothing verifiable as to the actual markings and coloration for this gorgeous flying boat. Oh, and have also been through Erik Pilawskii's impressive site, however he focuses on strictly Russian fighters and medium bombers, no seaplanes.

    Likewise, have done a full search through this forum, and have seen the one model rep from Australia, but it still does not seem accurate. Needless to say I am quite a stickler for accuracy, inside and out, and even make my own parts as needed.

    Any information regarding standard camouflage finishes for the Beriev MBR-2 would be appreciated. Am hoping someone here might have better contacts or search results than I've been blessed with!

    Warm Regards,

    Eric Burleigh

    Wanted to come back and post a note to let anyone who might see this thread know I goofed and posted the query twice -- Sorry gang! In any event, this was answered quite well over in the second section under "Need Camo Assist ..."

    Thanks again to everyone here,

    Eric Burleigh
