OK, to ease the comunication I suggest to use google chrome or any other browser that automatically translates. I use it when you write in russian (in russian I only know a simple poem about alphabet but can't read at all). The translation isn't perfect but is possible to understand. I will write in english but if someone doesn't understand something (the automatic translation doesn't work) please tell, and I will try to translate it to russian.
In 1980th in the USSR was much more the people understanding on Polish.
Then the Polish edition, TBiU or Skrzydlata Polska were virtually the only available sources of information on aviation in the West for most aviafans in the USSR. Large libraries with Western magazines such as Flight or Air Enthusiast were only in big cities.
Then someone has lost skills, and someone began to read Sienkiewicz and Prus in the original.))) Frankly, Quo vadis ("Kamo грядеши" in Russian translation) I has mastered with huge work!
Sorry for off-top!
I will not use all of it because PE parts are either too thin (floor deck, cockpit frame structure), or simply do not represent the part accurately (for example: seat baskets are made of steel rods welded or soldered together but PE parts are just flat thin bars). Anyway, here’s what I made so far:
Thanks Nieczajewem - it's all thanks to the reference material I got from Vyacheslav. Simply the more reference I have, the more detail I can put into my model. I tried to contact RusAvia to thank them for the restoration they did on U-2, but their server rejected my email...

Thanks Redstar_72 I'm not an enthusiast of clear fuselage parts nor models with all covering panels laying aroung. I plan to open most of the service hatches (maybe except of pilot’s dashboard service flap because I haven’t got any picture of it’s back side). For the fuselage covering I will use PVC rigid film (0,1 mm thick).
It's been some time since my last entry, but finally I've got something to show. Ive started to pack the details into the "front office". In the meanwhile I decided to change the concept of the fuselage structure. At first I planned to make every rib form individual lengths of styrene stripes, but then I decided to make every section as one piece. I think it will strenghten the structure and will be easier to assemble.
