Our long-term Russian correspondent, Igor Kolokolov, found himself facing this newly restored Be-6 'Madge', and, fitting a 'fish-eye' lens to his digital camera shot these 'different' detailed views for us to share.

These are especially useful now (2013) that a major kit manufacturer - Trumpeter - has just announced a brand-new 1/72 scale kit for release in the coming months. Incidentally, this was the 'Madge' that was displayed derelict, propped up on rocks in the middle of a deserted lake; Yup, the one with the naked ladies in the Photo Gallery! What a superb job of the restoration!

Grateful thanks to Igor for permission to use his images. Thanks, Igor.
