Nice work, Jon.  Is the Il-10 you intend to build the Special Hobby 1/48 kit?  If it is, be prepared for a difficult battle.  I did one about 3 years ago and it was one of the most difficult limited run kits I have built.  Just about nothing fit and one fuselage half was longer than the other. 

Thanks!

Yep, that is the kit... the SH one. For some reason, most of my commission builds are Special Hobby.  Tongue I guess most folks don't want to build them! LOL At least they are willing to pay me to do so. Thanks for the heads up. I figured it would be a tough kit, given the other SH kits I've built. I hope it's not worse than the Boomerang.... that was awful. I've sworn to never do that kit again ever.

Hi Jon,
the thing on the difficult building of the Il-10 is interesting. Could you take photos and notes during the process?

One major thing I forgot to mention is the Special Hobby kit wings have uneven dihedral--as I recall the right (or maybe it was the left) wing  has greater dihedral than the other.  Perhaps the kit designers were enjoying too much Czech beer at lunch.  BTW, if you're interested  I did a write up on the kit on Hyperscale.  Go to the forums and search for "B.33".

Hi Tyronesdaddy,
it would be interesting, but I have a lot of difficulties to find it. I've found a lot of posts on the B.33, but not a building report.
