nice to be here, thank you to accept me.

to make a long story short I'm now 55, returned to modeling in the last few years after the classic family-work-son break.
I narrowed my field of interest to the 32 and 35 scale models, WWII. having recently assembled a P39 and an I-16 (further detail separately later) and discovering this site, I am now embarking on an il-2.

cheers, Paolo

Hi Paolo! Welcome aboard. I just happen to be working on an I-16 at the moment, although at 74 (!!! Where did the time go?!) years of age, I'm still challenging my eyeballs by sticking to 1/72 scale! Again, welcome, and stay healthy.

Welcome to the site! I know a little bit about the Il-2, if you have any questions.

Best Regards,

thank you all very much, I'm glad to be here and learn as much as possible!

Jason, actually I'm searching and reading as much as I find on the subject, and to be honest i was looking to a color scheme to use the really big fuselage of this aircraft in 1/32. I was fascinated by a picture found on the web, but Massimo immediately pointed out that the aircraft in the image didn't match with the kit I have, the M3 version with the arrow wing... so, every suggestion is really welcomed!

cheers, P.

I you want to find some great schemes for any version of the Il-2, this is the site for it. Just look around, and I'm certain you'll find some interesting Il-2 scheme. So you have the arrow kit? There should be some arrows profiled here with some colourful quick identification markings. Good luck on your search!

Best Regards,

Jason
