Hi, I have a copy as a gift by Viktor, and it is a very good book.
I've never received a copy of the book of Jason, till now, so I can't make comparisons.

I'm now "in reading" of Jason's book. It is evident, and Jason would agree, these two books complement each other. There are things you'll find in one that absent in the second one and vice versa. Of course, many things are common, both books are about the same plane  Grin So the conclusion is one needs to have both of them.

I bought an Eastern Express Il-2 on eBay, thinking it would be the Dakoplast kit, but it turned out to be the Toko kit. Is there anyone who knows which Eastern Express boxings are the Dakoplast kits?

I bought an Eastern Express Il-2 on eBay, thinking it would be the Dakoplast kit, but it turned out to be the Toko kit. Is there anyone who knows which Eastern Express boxings are the Dakoplast kits?

I don't have any of the Eastern Express reboxings, but a web search turned up enough sprue photos for the EE kits that I was able to compare these with my Toko and Dakoplast original boxings. As best I can determine, here's what I learned (and I beg forgiveness for using outdated, but familiar and useful, Il-2 type terminology):
EE72214 - Il-2 single-seater - Dakoplast
EE72215 - Il-2m two-seater with straight wings - Dakoplast
EE72216 - Il-2m3 two-seater with swept ("arrow") wings - can be either Dakoplast or Toko! Both have the same box art; the only difference without opening the box is the presence or absence of a small "DAKO" logo in the bottom left corner, beside the "Eastern Express" logo.
EE72217 - Il-2m3 with NS-37 cannons - Dakoplast

If you can see the fuselage halves or an image of them, the easiest way to distinguish Toko from Dakoplast is that Dakoplast kits have a crescent-shaped cutout into which the wing root (part of the wing upper surface) fits on assembly. The Toko fuselage has a square, flat-bottomed appearance, because the wing fits in a more conventional butt-joint.

Zvezda Il-2m3 = reboxed Toko, by the way. There's also a Zvezda Il-2m3 with NS-37 which is the same Toko kit, with the cannons on a separate added sprue.

I believe there was also a Dakoplast "Il-2T" (T for torpedo) but I haven't seen any sign of that one being available as an Eastern Express product, although EE72217 does include the torpedo halves.

I hope this is helpful; I also hope that anyone who knows more or sees errors in what I've posted will correct me quickly!

As for aftermarket UBT there is one in Mini World rather pricy cast bronze gun range:
MINA7210 UBT:
https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MINA7210

MINA7211 UBS:
https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MINA7211

I have their DA-2 coupled mount on TUR-5 ring (cast bronze and PE) and ShKAS machine-gun on TUR-9 ring mount. Very pricy but worth every penny when built. It is just that i would go broke if i would want to equip my TB-3 and all my kits that would needs replacement

This might be of interest - a set of SIX DA-2's on TUR-5 rings, intended for the TB-1, for what seems like a very reasonable price compared with buying 6 of them separately:

Dakoplast kits come in the small white box (and will have Dakoplast label) and have a parts count of between 88 and 100
Toko kits come in large blue boxes (without Dakoplast label) and only have approximately 76 parts.
the same stock numbers are used for both so you need to SEE it before you buy it.

the Toko kit is a quick,easy and simple kit--the only thing it's got going for it.
