  1. Nice build...other than that greenhouse-lookin' bulge under the chin, looks like they copied (pretty much) the Lockheed C-141 Starlifter. Those Russians - always a day late and a dollar short in their design bureau. 🙂

  2. Bjorn: I used to see Il-76 Candid's flying nearly everday in Afghanistan. Our camp in Herat was close to the end of the runway and aircraft taking off would bank around our camp as they departed, so I got to see the Candid low and slow.. Your model certainly looks like the beautiful Il-76. Great job!

  3. The navigator has the best seat in the house here! I do like the early Russian jet and propliners with the glazed noses and the Il-76 fits right in . You did a fab job on it. Even in 1/144 it has to be fairly large, what are the dimensions of the completed kit?

  4. Beautiful Il-76! Well done, Bjorn.

  5. Great big plane, congrats!

  6. Nice job! Love the paint scheme.

    Nice clean work on this one Björn .

  8. THX. It´s one of my best fotoshooting. Looks for me very realistic.

  9. Very nice! I got to see a couple of these when my Det was flying out of Bahrain you captured the look of these beasts well!

  10. She's a beauty, and your photography is very cool! First couple of pics you have to do a double take to see it's a model.

  11. Wow, I thought the first few pictures were real airplanes.

  12. Really cool build subject! That's an absolute monster of an aircraft! Great presentation as well.

  13. That header picture is especially convincing, good to see something a little bit different, particularly when it's as well built and finished as this.
