Stargazer2006 do you have more information on the Aircraft D? It's the first time I see that one.

There was no standard color scheme for prototypes in Soviet Union (every OKB painted them as they wanted), so this seems to be pure fantasy of the artist Yuri Tepsurkaev. I attach here the whole page from No.2 Aviatsiya magazine; you can see that he "painted" different Borovkov/Florov projects in totally different way.
But I personally think that, if the Nazis wouldn't invade Soviet Union and the "D" aircraft prototype would be built and flown in peace time - it could be painted in similar scheme. But most probably it would be red/silver, rather than red/yellow. If the "D" would be built at wartime, most likely it would have upper surfaces painted protective green and lower surfaces painted blue.
Alcides said:Thanks for the data about paint schemes. I think the last scheme was the one selected by unicraft for their model. I'm attaching a picture of a model with that colors.
Alcides said:I've to say maybe we need to start a thread about Borovkov-Florow projects because I didn't know about the Aircraft 10 and 11 projects. A search in on the web shows a lot about the I-207. Are these advanced versions of 207?
