Hi.

Just wondering about the availability of VVS seatbelts in 1:48 scale?
Saw a tiny PE set from AML but that's about all I've come across.

Is there anything else available? Are the AML ones good?

Cheers,
Robert

Hi Robert,
Czech company HGW http://shop.hgwmodels.cz/en/ has nice seatbelts, and also other stuff.
From VVS they have belts only for Il-2 http://shop.hgwmodels.cz/en/148-scale/353-iljuschin-il-2-seatbelts-148-148531.html
I do not know whether Il-2 seatbelts were something standard applicable also for other planes, or something specific only for Il-2

Thanks 66misos.

My first two 1:48 VVS subjects are IL-2s so they are perfect. Thanks too for providing the link. Makes things much easier.

Hopefully one of the experts here can tell us if the IL-2 seatbelts would be applicable to other types.

Regards,
Robert

Hi Robert,
I do not know how familiar you are with another Czech company EDUAR. You wrote you have two Il-2.
So probably some aftermarket stuff from Eduard could be interesting for you

If you click on the picture, anothe page will open showing that particular PE parts added to the unpainted plastic kit like here:

Here are already prepainted PE parts:

The AML set isn't bad, although it's unpainted (which may or may not be a drawback). In the USA it's available from UMM. I've also got a couple of generic VVS seat belt sets made by ExtraTech, another Czech company. Don't remember from where I obtained them, but they're available at Hannants. Also unpainted. They look usable, but not as well detailed as the AML set.

Thanks 66misos and Seawinder.

Quite a few new options there. I'll have a good look and work out which ones would suit my purposes best and order some in.

I'll need three sets now I have added a Sukhoi Su-2 to the collection. I'm guessing the Il-2 seatbelts would also be suitable for the Su-2.

Regards,
Robert

Just wondering about the availability of VVS seatbelts in 1:48 scale?

IIRC the Soviets acquired the licence for the Sutton harness system before the GPW. According to Radu Brinzan, "Soviet aircraft of WW2 such as MiG-3, Yak-1, Yak-7, Yak-9 and Yak-3" and others carried A-type Sutton harnesses. The harness for the Il-2 pilot is different, with a round clip.
