1/144 GB: A pair of Ilyushins - both halves complete

Undaunted, another pair for the GB.

Firstly an Eastern Express Ilyushin Il-96-300. Pretty basic looking and without landing gear but I got a Braz landing gear set to fettle. I also got F-Dcal set of Cubana decals for this.

Alongside I'll have a go at the Zvezda IL-86 to be built as it comes. Hopefully get a start at the weekend.

Hi Derek
Please keep posting...I'm really enjoying the 1/144 sections as I've just downsized from 1/48th. Lack of time and space has made me try out 'the dark side'!!! Some really interesting subjects :biggrin: Picked up a few 144 kits at Cosford last weekend so I'm looking forward to cracking on with them...if the eyes will allow! :hypno:

Hope you keep going with a WIP on the 2nd half of this one! These were on the radar until recently so would love to see someone else building the,!

No WIP but the finished article. Nice kit with excellent fit. I got replacement decals from 26 decals which fitted beautifully.

Thanks for taking the time to comment - it is appreciated.
Undaunted and unbowed by the overwhelming lack of interest, I'll try another Russian pair next.
