As per my post in the 'Make The Others Jealous' thread, I love my Russian stuff and the bigger the better for me. I bought this off a friend some time a go part started and have since been cracking on... it's massive in 1/72nd scale. The wingspan as per photo is 30" wide, length is 30" too..

 

I decided a few weeks back to box up some projects so I can get on with what I love most. Sadly also the 1/24th Buccaneer is on hold, as I found out I've lost/misplaced the large etch fret, which I'm gutted about. I may have lost it in a house move, or it may just be in a model box as the Bucc box is quite flimsy... so who knows, but that's one model I really want to get on with but every time I start, something gets in the way.

 

Getting back to the Blackjack, the undercarriage is missing pieces so I'm having to fabricate my own parts. I will post photos up once it's all done. But I primed the wings last night, gave the fuselage a good rub down as it had been stored for a while and had marks on it, will prime that today to see where I am.. then I will need to buy gallon of white.

Nice! One went in over Red Square at Tuesday, low and slow behind an Il-76 tanker.

 

Waiting to see the markings. Which russian hero is yours?

Amodel or Trumpeter are the choices in 1/72nd scale. The wing says this is Trumpeters kit.

Also, another project is the Amodel IL-20M. Big kits as you can see from the box it's sat on..
