    Hi chaps sorry to not have been posting for a while but due to work and illness i've not been around much but i've found a large collection of old models/kits in another box stashed away in my stores back to the 60's so i thought rather than one at a time i'd show a few pics as found and then as restored in one thread for those interested,kits include many from frog/revell/airfix and many vac forms,some are missing many parts of which i will need to remake from scratch,hope you will like these,

    thanks for looking

    Okay, here it goes... Two profiles shoving IK-3 with two tone green/brown camouflage are completely inaccurate. These aircraft were never painted that way and more so never had white number painted on the fuselage! Also any profiles done by Srećko Bradić (Let Let Let - Warplanes website) should be taken with certain level of skepticism. He does offer a lot of useful info on his website, but is also known for quite "imaginative" interpretation of available photos when doing his color profiles. Also one should note that there are no known pictures of captured IK-3 with German markings. Any artwork in that regard is highly speculative.

    Here is an example of IK-3 three tone color scheme which is considered relatively accurate:
