Eventually one could use the engine cowlings of a Bloch 174 to make the version of 1940. In this case, there is also to rebuild the glazed part behind the cockpit. The kit of Revell is rare, it's a pity to scratch it to recover  the cowlings only, that have anyway to be opened and modified.  Probably I'll try to build my Revell kit correcting the fuselage cross section and the tail as possible. I wonder if I'll find a better glazing for the turret.

Hi!

Why not try to dig out Goffy Models detailing set for Zvezda? It has both old and new cowls and plenty of other useful stuff.

See: http://www.rollmodels.net/standard/show_sale_new.php?hileveldesc=1%2F72+Resin+Aircraft+Details&manufacturer=Goffy+Model

Same company did also a cockpit set for Il-4.

Cheers,

AaCee

Thank you, AaCee!  I didn't know about those.  I think Goffy's been out of business for some time, but perhaps Roll Models do still have the engines in stock.  Worth pursuing.

There; I just ordered the set.  Let's see if they actually have it (it looks quite nice)!

If you have any luck, please let me know. I've had bad luck with them actually having anything in stock, but it has been a long time since I've ordered from them. Maybe they have purged their catalog of the ancient stuff that is impossible to get anymore.
