Tamiya 1/48 Ilyushin IL-2 Sturmovik


Recommended Posts

Hello!spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.png

 

Here's my recent project, this very nice Tamiya kit. Nothing else to say regarding its quality and easy to build, it's been around for quite some time now. I've just added Quinta 3d decals and resin wheels. Used Aqueous Gunze paints, my favorites, over Mr Surfacer 1500 black primer. Also, my very first attempt in the riveting process, which is a lot of work; but the result is very satisfying.

Hope you'll enjoy.

Cheers!

George

Very nice weathering, but you have a fingerprint in the left side exhaust stain.

Thank you! You're right. Thankfully , I was able to sand it out and it's ok now. But I've deleted the detailed picture and will replace it soon.

I am flabbergasted over how well and detailed the painting and weathering is on this model.  You have got to have some high amount of patience to carefully place all the aspects of the weathering you have done on this model and the different techniques that were used.  Props to you.  Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely beautiful job on that Il-2! Only one small thing - the tag should be 'Red Air Force', not 'Russian Air Force'. 

 

Best Regards,

Thank you!! You're right! I'll change the tag.
