      Hey guys,

      I need your help. Just trying to finish a Zvezda Il-62 in Cubana old livery (LU decals)but I can't find any good pictures or instructions regarding the engines, especially about the engines exausts wich are pretty particular due to the double engines config.
      On some pictures, only the outter exaust seems to be polished steel whereas the Zvezda instructions tells to paint the whole exaust sections including the inner exaust of the engines.
      Anybody got a clue or drawing?
      Also no indications on the LU decals instructions about that specific part of the Aircraft...

      Thanks for your help,

      Philippe

      Only the outboard engines have thrust reversers, and the inboards are not natural metal.
