Academy 1/72 Iluyshin Il-2 Sturmovik

Post by Seamus »

Evening all,

This is my latest completion, the 1/72 Academy Il-2. A good kit with nice details, albeit a bit fiddly in places, the undercarriage especially. I had a couple of fit issues, but I suspect they're more of my own doing rather than a reflection of the kit, and a few clumsy mistakes along the way made this one of those kits I just wanted off the bench. Finished completely OOB using Hataka Orange Line as always- the instructions suggest a brown/green camo, which I understand to be inaccurate, so I followed a paint plan I found online that matched up with one of the decal options, replacing the brown for the correct black.
