IL2 Sturmovik was created by IAN
Kit - Italeri re-boxed Accurate Miniatures.
Paint - All enamels.
Decals - Eduard & kit.
Extras - Eduard Zoom set.


IL2M-3 Sturmovik
23rd Ind. Assault Regt.
Soviet Black Sea Fleet
Late 1943.






















First time I've built an IL2 and first time I've finished an AM kit. Engineering is superb IMO, as long as you take the time to read how other folks built theirs AND test fit... especially around the wing-to-fuselage assemblies. All the paint tones are mixed using my favourite (un)reliable Mk.I eyeball method using Humbrol, Xtracolour and Tamiya enamels. I bought a sheet of 'Authentic Decals' but they shattered into molecule sized fragments as soon as they hit the water so I used Eduard 'stars' and the kit supplied bort numbers / guards badge.

Not too much else to add, if anyone wants to ask any questions, make any comments or rain-down any abuse, that's all fine. Have the rest of a great weekend folks... best from the 'Naki.

I despise that I've been forced into 'semi retirement' here in NZ, but it does give me so much more 'me time'... s'pose there is an upside, eh ?

That looks very good. 1:72?? You’ve made it look larger with the painting and weathering.

Have to agree that is a nice paint job and the kit looks very good. Be good to see it in a few months in Cambridge in the flesh.
