  1. Zvezda is to release in 2020 a 1/48th Ilyushin IL-2 Shturmovik kit. Source: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235061306-zvezda-2020/ V.P.
  2. Hi All - here's my recently finished Il-2 - built with the newish Tamiya kit - Kit was very nice and went together very easily. Painted with Tamiya acrylics for the most part, weathering with AK and Mig washes along with oils and pigments. Built pretty much OOB and used the kit decals - replaced the guns and pilot tube with needles and used mig rigging for the antennae. Also added an eduard PE seatbeat to the pilot seat and Brassen resin wheels. It was a very enjoyable build and really enjoyed using oil paints to weather the airframe - I seem to have turned a corner with this technique so I'm
  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's the new KP Ilyushin Il-2M, a re-box of the Smer kit with new parts added. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Hope you like my result, best greetings from Vienna! Roman

  5. My last finished model. I did not like my finish. I mistakenly used Mr Surfacer 500 instead of 1200. I used a mixture of Tamiya paints. Cheers!
  6. "In this battle mercy or considerations of international law is false. They are a danger to our own safety and to the rapid pacification of the conquered territories." -- Richtlinien für die Behandlung politischer Kommissare [Guidelines for the Treatment of Political Commissars], issued on 6 June 1941 by OKW Children cried in the hospital. At the gates A truck as big as a train car opened its black mouth. As they shoved him into the jaws of the death van[...] The enemy mob was merciless and black. But the nation heard this child's cry. And the
  7. I build not only modern jet fighters but also WW2 aircraft. This is the 1/72 scale flying tank from Academy. More at: https://www.facebook.com/myanmarairmodeller/
  8. Just to show that I'm not just someone who prattles on endlessly about aeroplanes and models, but someone who actually, occasionally completes models, for your pleasure are some piccies of an Il-2 Shturmovik I had made for a magazine article a few years back (sadly, the article was never published). This is, as the title would suggest, the single-seater version of the Il-2 Shturmovik as realised by Hobby Boss in 1/32nd scale. The kit itself is very nicely moulded, with no flash, and has nice engraved detail. There were some errors that had to be corrected, mainly amongst them the metal rear fu
  9. Back by popular demand, it's my modelling output for the year just past! Hot upon the heels of my prodigious 2014 modellistic endeavours (2 finished models!), I followed up that triumph by doubling, yes, you read that right, DOUBLING my output! I present for your dubious enjoyment piccies of no less than 4 models I finished in the last year! I'd like to say that I made up in quality what I lacked in quantity in my 2015 production, but my solicitor advises me not to break deceptive advertising laws, so I can't say that. However I will say that the following photographs contain a surprise - a NO
  10. A few months a ago I placed an order with Hannants, and they sent me this little gem by mistake. At first I was a little cranky but they soon fixed up their error and I got a free model. I called it a little gem and it is. I don't know how accurate it is and I don't care, it is something I wouldn't buy but a very interesting aircraft. The boxing is really good everything is protected in plastic bags and foam covers. The pitot tube only lasted a couple of hours before it broke off, though. I was careful with it. The detail looks good and the kit goes together quickly. As you can see the
  11. Okay the bad news first; despite the rather lurid title, I only completed two models this year, an Il-2 Shturmovik and an La-5, both in the gentleman's scale of 1/72nd. Now the good news - this doubles my output from last year! The Il-2 arrow (swept-winged variant) was from the Toko kit, with wooden wings represented by labouriously sanding down the wings to rid it of the engraved panel lines. The La-5 was built strictly out of the box, and the kit is a repop of the old, but quite nice Cooperativa kit. I'm not too happy with the exhaust stains on the La-5, but I was in a hurry to get if "offic
  12. Afternoon all. Quick catch up - as an irregular poster, I'm sure you're all dying to know what I've been up to since my last thread . Well: Got 2nd hand display cabinet from computer shop in Oxford. It cost £100 but it was almost perfect. Shelves 30cm high by 35cm deep, so I have added home-made 'half-shelves' 15cm high and 20cm deep, almost doubling the capacity. The 1/24 Mossie just about sits on top. To fill it up, I've since built Dragon Ju88, Airfix Hurricane and Stuka, Tamiya Mustang, Corsair, T-34 and Sherman Firefly and an Academy P-38 Lightning, all 1/48. Mrs Card kindly got me
  13. Good day! Let me present you my next model. Certainly, Tamiya's model is wonderful, but etched set from Eduard must be using too. As usually, I was riveted the model, made pre- and post shading. Used Tamiya colour set, some copper wires and tubes and navigation lights set from Elf. Exhaust pipes and tires also from Eduard. This aircraft fought in the 566th Ground Attack Air Regiment of 277th Attack Air Division Frontal Aviation Armed Forces of the USSR. The model shows it as looked in the battles on the Leningrad front in the summer of 1944, when it was flown by the squadron commander Lieute
  14. This kit is a down-scaled version of their fine 1/48th scale kit of the arrow, and like that kit it is an excellent kit, with little to no flash, superb moulding, and engraved panel lines (and the correct wooden rear fuselage). A test fit shows that the parts fit well, although as seemingly with all Shturmovik kits, you’ll need to be careful with the wing-fuselage joint to get a proper fit. As with the 1/48th scale Tamiya arrow, the link ejector opening on the port wing will need to be redone. These ejector openings are in front of the long, narrow shell casing openings, on the undersides o
  15. The below is a review of the Academy straight-winged two-seater 1/72nd scale kit recently released. This modified excerpt is from my book on modelling the Il-2: "This kit is the Accurate Miniatures kit that was never released under the Accurate Miniatures name in 1/72nd scale. In terms of construction and detail it is basically a downsized version of a 1/48th scale Accurate Miniatures kit, in this case the never-released straight-winged two-seater. The spinner is too round and best replaced by a Toko or Eduard spinner (hopefully Vector may release a replacement spinner as they did for the
  16. Hi all, Not sure if this has already been reported, but I spotted this tidbit on the 72nd scale aircraft forum. Tamiya are scaling down their 1/48 Il-2 to 1/72: http://www.hlj.com/product/TAM60781 Academy are finally releasing a two seater: http://www.academy.co.kr/eng/6q/frmBoardView.asp?pMenuId=BOARD00012&pCode=5351 The Tamiya kit's an "arrow" wing and the Academy one is a straight wing so at least both of them aren't duplicating the other entirely! Mike.
  17. I know I've already mentioned this fact in a few (or more) posts I've made on this forum (amongst others), but I'm currently finishing up an extensive guide to modelling the Il-2. This book features photographs from WWII (The Great Patriotic War, or GPW, to the Soviets/Russians), drawings especially commissioned for the book, and reviews of all the kits and accessories currently available for the Shturmovik (at least those I know about, of course). In addition, I have a detailed build on the Hobby Boss wheeled single-seater 1/32nd scale kit, and a fairly extensive review of the 1/48th scale
