Once again, the internet has provided the inspiration for a modeling project. The paint scheme for this Revell 1/48 Ilyushin IL2 Stormovick is based on a late war photo I saw there.
It’s painted in German Green, Field Gray, Russian Pea, and Gloss Red. The plane was rusting away in the photo. It has Leningrad markings. The kit was fairly easy to build. The fuselage kept bowing out when I was gluing it, so I rubber banded it together until the joint was solid.
