Jean, I have the Eduard 'kit-bash' straight-winged two-seater, and it's a nice kit. Worth the money, I think, if you want to do a metal-winged straight-winged two-seater. I'm glad you liked the book; hopefully it will be of some help as you build your model, however you proceed with it.

Best Regards,

Jason

Hi Jason,

I'll keep the eduard kit in mind.
As for project: I've dropped the two-seater with straight wing for a early model single-seater (before Barbarossa)
Metal wings with 2 landing lights, Shvak, etc, etc.
It will be blue or yellow 2 from the middle of this page :
http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/il-2/il2-camo/il-2early1941/il2-early1941.htm
I'm currently rescribing the wings after removing some panels.

Your book is coming handy of course and was the inspiration.
I'll post some pictures of my progress on the Ilyushins forum.

All the best.

Hi Jason.

As said, better late than never, I?ve finally got The Red Avenger. What to say? Comprehensive, full of great photos, full of well done color plates (Massimo, great job here, as usually!). I have not seen a book describing the Il-2 from Junkers J.I to Il-2 Sturmovik (PC sim) before. Epic range!

I look forward to seeing the photographs of the model, Jean, and I'm glad the book has been of some help. I'm modifying the 1/72nd scale Academy kit to do bort 5/2, also on Massimo's page on the early single-seater. Viktor, I'm glad you like the book!

Best Regards,

Jason

Hi Massimo.

I?m now mostly doing what a big part of the Il-2 books readers is expected to do - building models following the book Smiley
While working on my book, I?ve purchased all recently released kits, both Academy ones, Tamiya kits in both scales, two HB in 1/32 and also one of the same producer in 1/72. And I have more Il-2 kits waiting for their time to come  Grin
Here is one of the examples:
