Kovozavody Prostejov 1/72 Iljušin IL-2M “Černá smrt”
This one was for me and I think I bit off a lot more than I can chew at the moment.
Having been reading the marvellous “Red Star Against the Swastika” by Vasily B. Emelianenko and having received this kit whilst finishing the book I just had to give it a go.
I had built a kit without locating pins and such earlier- Eduard 1/48 Mach Buster X-1 – I thought how difficult would it be.
Painted with UMP White Primer, Vallejo Model air AMT-4 Camo Green, Mig AMT-7 Greyish Blue, Tamiya Nato Black and Neutral Grey.
I’m not convinced that the Vallejo Green is any where near the correct shade but the Mig green that I was going to put on just pooled on the surface. The Vallejo amt24 Green may be closer. I will see on the next one.
I messed up the white band by making it much too large. Still learning about masking stuff correctly.
I spent what seemed like days filling, filing and sanding to try and get this to a reasonable level but got to the stage that I just wanted it finished.
Not KP’s or the kits fault, all purely down to my inexperience and impatience. I still had fun and learned a lot of lessons to be taken into future builds.
Anyway Here are the pics in all their brutality
Thanks, as always for checking this out and any comments, criticism and tips gratefully received.
