Amodel 1/72 Ilyushin Il-20 Coot
Pete in a shed posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftHi all, Done a while ago this is my IL-20 Coot. An Amonster, the wings and fuselage come in fibreglass with the rest in plastic. The parts all need cleaning up before assembly with drilling, cutting and sanding required on the fibreglass parts. Thereafter fit, fill and sand are the order of the day. The model is from the box other than the Little Lenses used for landing lights and Kristal Klear cabin windows. The U/C is drilled and reinforced with brass rod as there is a considerable amount of lead in the front end. More recently I had another go at the paint finish. These aircraft had very faded paintwork which I have tried to replicate using Tamiya powders with a blue hue to fade the grey base. Oil stains were done using the same product. Promodeller wash was used for Panel lining. The aerial is new and the propellor bosses now sport black tips. At a later stage I may convert it into the M variant which has many more interesting lumps and bumbs. We shall see. Hope you like it Pete Thanks for looking Pete Ongoing in the shed Il -14 Albanian Air Force 1, MiG-23UM Hungarian AF, Ermalayev 2, Su-15UM
