  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. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Dear Fellow Modellers I used a profile from Richard Caruna to do an early war camouflage for this 2-seat Il-2. Model was done up with Quickboost barrels and exhausts. You'd hardly know it has an Eduard PE for the cockpit. Maybe you can spot a flying helmet draped over the rear seat fuselage? Hope you like it? Andrew
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Il-2 Wheels (for Tamiya) 1:48 Eduard Brassin (648072) The new Tamiya kit has set the benchmark for the dependable Shturmovik, with excellent detail throughout. This wheelset improves on the detail still further, unfettered by the limitations of injection moulding. The set arrives in Eduard's clamshell box, and inside are two new wheels, four hubs and a set of hub masks to ease painting. Detail on the wheels far exceeds that of the kit parts, which are very good in themselves. Posing the two together shows up the kit parts, as the Eduard wheels have additional tyre detail in the f
  11. Il-2 Weapons Set 1:48 Eduard Brassin (648073) Tamiya's new wünderkit contains a number of munitions carried by the Shturmovik, but this set adds two more to the armoury, in the shape of a pair of each of the smaller FAB 50 and RS 132 bombs. The FAB 50 is simply a small 50kg bomb, which have atypical (for Russian bombs) traditional fins without the ring aerofoil at the rear. The RS 132 is a small anti-personnel unguided rocket that entered service with the Soviet airforce in 1940, and although it had poor accuracy, when enough were launched in a salvo some were bound to hit their ta
