  1. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Kovozávody Prostějov Ilyushin Il-2M, built with the addition of Quickboost guns and pitot tube. Painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. This is a re-box of the Smer kit with new fuselage and some small parts. Parts are well cast with good engravings, and fit is okay. I replaced the kit's gun barrels with resin parts from Quickboost (QB72182). The QB set also includes the pitot tube, which is missing on the sprue. KP also overlooked the prominent rudder horn on the fin. I made a replacement from stretched sprue, dipped in white glue to form a 'drop' shape. I fabricated a sling seat for the rear gunner from a piece of photo-etch. It's barely visible behind the defense gun: I was not too happy with the kit's decals. Maybe I should have stored them in a cooler place (my flat gets hot in summer). Silvering is evident on close-ups. The delicate aiming device in front of the canopy is a photo-etch piece stolen from an Eduard Set for the Tamiya kit (there's two included!). Here's my home-made rudder balance which is missing in the kit. In this close-up, you can see the Red Star decal broke when I gently pressed it into the recess. Weathering on the undersides was done with artist oils from Winsor & Newton. ... and here's his squadron mate from Black See Fleet, which I built in 2019 when the KP kit was released: Thank you for your interest! Best greetings from Vienna, Roman
  2. 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 Tamiya Il-2 kit. I also have some walk-around photographs of currently extant Shturmoviks, both restored and unrestored. At present my plans are to release it initially as an ebook, available through Lulu.com. This is the cheapest and easiest route for me, as I've basically already paid for everything I need in order to publish the book. However, if there is sufficient interest in an actual, hold it in your hands book, I will explore that option also. Frankly, I like to have an actual book to look at; however, one of the advantages of the ebook form is that I can add new reviews to it when new Il-2 items are released. I'd be more than happy to have it available in both formats, but I need to know if I'm going to make any money off a full-blown book. The "real" book would cost more than the ebook, and I'm thinking $15USD (9.35 GBP or 11.61 Euros) would be reasonable for the book; the ebook would cost less, but I'm not sure how much less. Of course the more I can sell, the cheaper I can sell it at. Any comments and questions are welcome! Best Regards, Jason Moore
  3. Stormovik, Shturmovik or Sturmovik? Ive come across three different spellings on the www. Stalin, In a telegram to the directors of one of the troubled Sturmovik Il-2 plants ‘Our Red Army now needs Il-2 aircraft like the air it breathes, like the bread it eats.’ Over the course of the war, a total of between 31,000 and about 36,000 Il-2s were produced. The Il-2 was anything but advanced in its mixed wood-and-metal construction, which was relatively easy to manufacture in significant numbers using relatively unskilled workers. But for an aircraft, it was an amazing achievement. Among the Shturmovik’s most important assets were its strength and robustness in combat. The forward fuselage section — protecting the aircraft’s fuel system, radiators and crew station — was built entirely of armor plate. Thus, the Il-2 could, and often did, absorb extraordinary battle damage and survive to fight another day. The Build, Airfix series 2 kits. Having recently completed four of the latest Airfix had to offer in the 1/72 spitfire range I thought I would dig around in my stash and find my next challenge. So out came two Airfix Illyushin Stormovich (Series 2) kits. Finished as a post war Polish Air Force Aircraft. Poor fit between fuselage half’s and wing upper and lower sections required plenty of filling and scrapping, when attaching the wings to the fuselage the wings were too thin I could either align the tops or the bottoms with the fuselage join line and do my best on the opposite side, I went with aligning the top surfaces best I could and profiled the underside best I could, Undercarriage doors are simple profiled pieces with little detail or instructions how to locate. I struggled throughout the build and on more than one occasion I thought of stopping and putting them to one side, however as I progressed things looked better and in the end I’m pleased with the results. (but I wont build another!) Airfix box 'Stormovik'?

  6. Well i havent done a WIP for ages so i thought i would give it a go again. My Wife bought me this wheil we were on Holiday at my Parents in Devon. Actually we got it for a good price.Ive been wanting to build a Sturmovik for ages and i had been looking at the Hobbyboss 1/32 one. Im glad she bought me the Tamiya 1/48 one. I was blown away when i opened the box. Amazing molding , beautiful surfaces , great decals and even canopy masks! Fantastic! Work starts in the cockpit and as you would expect from Tamiya it litterally falls together. I have painted it RLM Grey and dry brushed with a lighter shade. The decals for the instruments settled down perfectly with some Klear. The front and rear interiors slide in from underneath so the fuselage can be assembled. The front intake and parts all fit perfectly. NO filler anywhere yet Thats it for now. I will post more pics later
