Academy Il-2 (early) 1/48

January 22, 2019 · in Aviation · · 10 · 2.4K

Soviet Ski Team, 1940.
Single seat , straight wing. Easy meat for German fighters, led to the development of the Il-2m3.
A really nice kit, fairly innovative engineering but a straightforward build. Highly recommended.

  2. That looks really cool, I especially love the weathering. Great work!

  3. Very nice indeed!
    As it's not a very well known plane (for me at least), can you post more photos, please? Maybe the underside too 🙂

  4. Nicely done, glad to see you're posting again. Long time no see. Good job on this one, I like it.

  5. That's a fine looking IL-2, Bryan. Outstanding weathering, and the snow scheme including the skis is excellent!

  6. Bryan, Looks really nice. A very attractive and realistic looking model. I like that you didn't overdue the weathering. Well done !

  7. A great looking model - nice paint and finishing work, and it's great to see a skis version - not commonly seen.

  8. Great looking model, superb finish and weathering.

    BTW - the Academy kit is the Accurate Miniatures original, reboxed.

  9. You did a beautiful job of showing the bird as ugly as it was, and I'm completely serious.
