Hi mates! Here my recently finished WWII project. The kit is very nice, except of decals (both research and quality, so I just painted most of the markings). Aftermarket used - Eduard etch, Armory wheels, Montex masks for insignia This specific aircraft was lost over Black Sea in 1944 with whole crew. Critics welcome!

The Soviets produced over 5,000 Il-4/DB-4 twin-engine bombers from 1937-1945, and they were used until the last days of the war against Japan. Despite the use of this bomber on nearly every sector in the SSR, there exists very few photos of this aircraft post-1945. Can any one provide information on color scheme utilized by the Ilyushin Il-4's used after the war for coastal reconnaissance, transport, communications, training and in its traditional role of torpedo bomber? I have read that the Russians did not begin to retire the Il-4 until 1947, and then only gradually over the next eight years. Thank you in advance for any information on unit histories post-1945, color schemes, and operational history of the Ilyushin il-4, NATO code name "Bob".
