Academy 1/72 IL-2 Stormovik

Finished this Xmas present that my daughter gave me. Academy 1/72nd aircraft kits are good quality (IMHO) but this kit maybe just a little over-engineered. The cockpit assembly is nicely detailed but I almost broke it trying to fit it [...]

Video: IL-2 Shturmovik – Full video build 1/48 scale by ZVEZDA

1/48 ZVEZDA IL-2 Shturmovik The famous Soviet Il-2 strike aircraft was nicknamed the "flying tank" for its reliable armor, powerful armament, and direct ground troops support in battle. Its mass production began in February [...]

Zvezda 1/48 IL-2

Hi There, I thoroughly enjoyed this one and am quite chuffed with it. It gave me one or two fit issues which I think were more caused by my butchery of the plastic than by manufacture. Edit: Just noticed that I've not removed the masking [...]

My Completions for the Year: The Class of 2020

This past year has been a very tough year for everyone. People being furloughed, or losing their jobs due to this pandemic. A lot of us found that we had a whole lot of free time on our hands. Not that is a great thing these days, but [...]

1/48 scale IL-2 Sturmovik by Zvezda - 100% New Tool! Very nice kit from Zvezda, great base for future twin seater edition (bomb bay, etc.). Disclaimer: I am NOT! being paid to promote this kit, paints, tools and to make this video! [...]

Revell of Germany, (Accurate Miniatures) 1:48 Scale IL-2, "Stormovik"

The first for the new year, 2020, is this Revell of Germany, Ilyushin Il-2, Stormovik. Actually this is a repop of the Accurate Minatures kit, and is STILL a very nice kit, albeit a wee bit fiddley overall. The kit itself builds well, and [...]

My First Vacuform Kit

I'm hoping some day to snag a Vac Wings O2U Corsair to fill out my growing collection of dive bombers (as well as my collection of Corsairs), but since I've never done a vacuform kit before, I figured I should practice first. So I bought [...]

Academy Il-2 (early) 1/48

Soviet Ski Team, 1940. Single seat Il-2, 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.

1/72 Airfix Stormovik

Like it's builder (me), this model is an antique. It seems I've been going through a stage of doing old kits, that are fast and relatively easy. I've ignored my WWII Japanese and Soviet aircraft in the past, and I'm starting to fill [...]

The Flying Tank

This is the Tamiya 1/48th Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik It's built straight from the box. The only addition was the pilots seat harness. All the paints used were Tamiya acrylics. The wing joint was so good, I painted the fuselage and wings [...]
