1/48 Xuntong Model Tupolev Tu-2S

Recommended Posts

Hello, my modeler friends!
Now that I have finished this long task at last. A vintage Soviet WW2 Bomber Tupolev Tu-2S in 1/48 Scale from a Chinese company called Xuntong Models. I have never heard of this company until I found this kit and bought it. I think this is quite a young company and has only got a handful of aircraft model kits.

The Tu-2 is the medium high-speed bomber of the Soviets during the WW2 and had large internal bomb bay. It can also be used as a torpedo bomber and can even match the speed of some single-engined fighters.
It played a major role in the final offensive of the Red Army.

The build I experienced is a bit challenging and complicated. Includes many details but they are not crisp like the Eduard's Pe-2 or the Dragon's Bf-110 that I built before. I used many PE parts and scratch upgrades. The major modifications are_
riveting the entire aircraft, cutting out the plastic part and installing the PE Landing Flaps, PE and scratch-detailed engines, scratch detailed seat belts and bomb bay. These are my first to experience this much modification of the original plastic kit. So, of course made some mistakes. But at last, although not perfect, it seems beautiful and I feel satisfied.
Hope you guys like it.
Happy Modeling!

What a beautiful job!  I've got one of these in the stash and would love it if it turned out half as good as yours.  Sadly I know it won't!   :(
