Having a mass purchase of 1/72nd VVS aircraft currently, or more accurately any soviet aircraft from 1918 to 1945 by any manufacturer. I found an MPM KOR-1 knocking about cheaply, and my questions are these :
Is the KOR-1 to all intents and purposes a Be-2? If so, I'd like to model this kit on the example here -http://www.aviation.ru/Be/Be-2.jpg
What paint colour is represented on the glossy upper surfaces here? Presumably a modern paint scheme, but I'm not sure. Any advice welcomed.
Incidentally, Beriev's website lists the KOR-1 as 'in service untill 1942 under mark Be-6' : [edited to add -on the site's 'photos' tab]http://www.beriev.com/eng/core_e.html
Curious or what?
