  1. Great-looking build, and perfect timing! I just bought a set of Akan paints to test them out, and the IL-4 was one of the subjects the set was designed for, so I’m pulling out my Master Model 1/72 kit to do so. How about a few more pics for reference material…? I like the weathering and chipping you did on it.

  2. Excellent work (and like Greg said, weathering/chipping looks great)…that masking job looks like it was a real headache, though. Turned out well, however.

  3. Great work of an interesting aircraft.

  4. Lovely job of an aircraft I’ve never seen before,kind of like a predessesor of the B17 with two engines like the Avro Manchester was to the Lancaster. How much more satisfying is it to complete a really challenging kit rather than the latest Tamygawafix masterpiece and end up with a really nice and interesting addition to your collection,well done Paul.

  5. Very nice result. I took a look at the kit when it was in the shop and passed. You demonstrated that it’s a “tough build” but the result is great.

  6. That is a unique looking aircraft, and you did a great job on it.

  7. Great build on an unusual subject.

  8. Now that’s impressive! Thanks for sharing.

  9. The effort was worth it, you’ve ended up with a great model.

  10. Great model! Thank you for showing interest in Russian planes!
