That flange, which was to prevent oil leaking from the propeller hydraulic system from splashing onto the windscreen, was not present on the first Shturmoviks but was added very soon after.  Sometimes it was natural metal, but usually it was painted.

Hi,
After a long building period I am close to the painting.
It can be seen ont he quality of the building that I have restarted a few times. The material of the kit did not liket that. I hope I can continue it in quick steps.

Hi Istvan,
a very interesting work. I like the idea to build a Il-2 of 1941, it's a rare thing to see one in plastic and it can wear liveries that were never worn by the usual version of 1942 reproduced by all the kits of the singleseater.

Hi Istvan,

glad to see you have resumed work on this one. I was inspired by your work to start my own early Il-2. All the re-scribing is done but I was a bit burned out so started an Su-2 for a bit of a break.
Just need to do the landing lights on mine and I too will be ready for the painting stage.

Looking forward to see what camouflage scheme and markings you will choose.

Cheers,
Robert

Massimo,
Yes, I am interested of these early fighters.


Robert,
I had to restart the building several times as there are a lot of small details on it and I could find more and more documents about those. Based on the new available informations it happened that I had to repair details several times which I thought that they were already ready.

Painting?
I was thinking on it a lot, but finally I have chosen a simple green.

Hi Istvan,
looking at how you have masked the rear panels of the glazing, it seems to be an error: the rear panels were joined between them, without a metallic frame separing them. The photo shows clearly rivets to join them, while the solid frame is on the background.

Massimo!

Yes the matching of the plexi is not ready yet, I have not had enough strength to do it.
There will be a small break in the painting untill the masking, and our kithcen is not ready.

Very nice, Istvan! You mean you haven't broken off the rudder balance, yet?

What could have been broken that had been broken, and I am afraid it is not the end yet.

Hi Istvan,
nice work indeed.
Anyway, the planes bearing this livery were new and glossy at the beginning of the war. it could represent a plane left intact for long in an airfield captured by Germans.

During the weekend I could go forward with this never ending job.
As nobody have been issued the decals yet, I decided to paint those.

Very nice, Istvan! I've thought about doing '5/2' in 1/72nd scale, on the Academy kit (it's basically the AM kit shrunk to 1/72nd scale). I've done a lot of work on it; maybe looking at yours will get me back to working on it.
