Wow! Two sets of gull-wings? You are definitely not afraid!

Good luck with it. That's an outstanding choice.

*Edit* File isn't uploading, I get an error saying my file is 5.3Mb

This is the first time this has happened to me; how would I shrink it?
Ryan,

What format is the file in? If its a JPG or such, it can be edited with a photo editor that will let you reduce the resolution, pixel size, or both. In anycase, I wouldn't mind a copy sent directly to my email at videooptics@hotmail.com .

Thanks,
Mike

It's a bitmap image; I don't have much of an editing program (paint?) and I'm not extraordinarily computer-savvy, but anyway I'll send the file your way.

Mike,

Sent you the 3-view, then google-imaged Nikitin IS-2 out of curiosity and look what came up!

http://www.aviastar.org/air/russia/nikitin_is-2.php

The three view on this site is the same one I have...

Ryan,

Got it! When I get home tonight I'll see if I can make it more managable.

I thought I recognized it but yours is way better detail..... It should be at that file size .

Thanks,
Mike

D-, Ryan,

Your not gonna believe it but I got a copy of the 1975 Model-Constructor magazine that those scans you posted came out of. Its in a PDF file but its 12+ mb so I can't upload it. Let me know if you want a copy and I'll email it to you.

I was cruising around some Russian web sites looking for more information and ran across these pics of a plastic model of the IS-1. I tracked down the kit maker and ordered several. Not the "Ideal" set of five views I was looking for but I understand that plastic scale models are acceptable for documentation in scale competition. What I plan to do is section one out if I can't loft a drawing or maybe to enhance my knowledge of an area in question. Like around the wing to fuse mating area.

Good find Mike! The plastic models will be a huge assistance in designing. Many times there are those tricky areas, as you mentioned, that are easier seen to understand.

Glad you're turning up good information and making headway.

Fantastic subject to model! This one would be out of my league as far as designing goes. This one is going to be great watching as it come together. I'll be lurking here often.
