Yom Kippur War…1/48 Ilyushin Il-28 “Beagle”, Egyptian Airforce
Another big beast is done.
The new Il-28 from Bobcat Models (former Xuntong) with markings from Hi-Decal. The kit is basically ok. The clear parts could be a bit clearer. Fuselage fit is good, but engine nacelles, nacelles to wings and tailplane parts need some filler.
Painted with MRP Saudi Color FS30475, Light Sky Blue FS35526 and Dark Green FS34079. Used Eduard seatbelts for the cockpit, EZ Line and fishing line for the antenna wires.
77th Independent Tactical Bomber Squadron, Kom Awshim Airbase October 1973
