ICM 1/72 Tupolev Tu-2T

December 14, 2022 · in Aviation · · 21 · 1.4K

I built this kit for a review article for IPMS USA, so can only post a few photos. To see more, and read the build review (tough kit to put together!), visit the review article:

As much of a slog as it was (slowed me down for months), I'm still very glad to have a in my collection, as I think the Tu-2 and Pe-2 are two of the best-looking Russian WWII warplanes around!

  19. G'day Greg (@gkittinger),
    I agree on the good looks of the Pe-2 and Tu-2.
    That is also an interesting camo scheme.
    Back when I built 1/72 ('70s and '80s) I would have loved to have a Tu-2 kit.
    I know there is one in 1/48 but I haven't seen it in any of the local hobby shops.
    A great build and excellent paint job, as usual - it is hard to believe it is 1/72.
