I don't wanted to show the lL-2engine though the kit provided a good and detailed engine block but to show behind clear parts which phylosophy l don't understand. I just instalkey it a base to hold the prop.

The dry fit of wings and fuselage is ...uhm...average.

The rear portion of the fuselage has some errors like missing panellines on the wing root and a fully riveted fuselage. I would suggest to fix both before doing further work on pit or other parts.

Thank Harv🤗

Further update. The kit cockpit lacks some further derails and is very basic. I used the Eduard PEset for that and l think it worth any cent. The now implemented pit is such a difference compared to the kit thing that you are really in doubt what aircraft the HobbyBoss team wanted to show.🙄

The "hand rail"detail in the rear pit (not the brass), is that PE, kit, or scratch made ? It looks real good.....Harv :popcorn:

Harv the four hand rails are selfmade. The folded metal sheets did not look right to me. I drilled thru the the sidewall PE sheet dlightly into the the fuselage to have better stabiltity with the rails.

Here the update of the rainy today afternoon. The compass grey mentioned in the kit manual l interpreted as a light grey with some drops of bright blue. Dark blue and medium grey for the shadows. All colors are from Tamiya except the silver straps of the tank airbrushed in AK Extreme Metal. The brown floor of the rear gunner in an interpretation by me. Eduard dont mention a color but l think its wood. The coloring is still WIP.

Nice interior!

 

Don't worry about the wingroot fit. The wingroot fillet was bolted onto the armored fuselage, so there is in fact a visible step along the upper rim. Just smooth out/blend in the last root segment of the wing into the rear wingroot part of the fuselage and you have an Il-2 like made in Russia.

That's great work on the cockpit!! The Eduard stuff really helps fill out the pit. I enjoyed building the same kit, there are some fit issues, but with careful fitting and scraping, it can be built with little/no fill. The most fill i used was on the aft fuselage, filling the rivets and panel lines. Looking forward to the in progress.

Looks great Urs. Super PE work, and I like the brass grab handles.

Yesterday I finished the last steps on the pit with dry brushing and MiG-washes. Just as I was about to glue the last strap on the pilot seat I skidded a little that left some nasty glue stain on the seat. To clean the seat I used the AK-airbrush cleaner which nearly solved the seat. After some extra hours of work I finally glued in the corrected and reworked seat. Not to be seen here is the rear gunner seat strap, which picture I’ll include with the next post
