For those who do not know yet.
Zvezda is coming with their new Il-2, starting with singleseater version in 1/48 scale:





Seems twoseater also should follow, there is an preparation for alternative part for the gunner position:

Hi Misos,
looks promising, but I don't like these prop blades. They look twisted in strange way.

Those blades do look a bit odd, but the spinner isn't bad.

Hi,
I had a look to a built Il-2 of Zvezda on M-Hobby 12/2020 and was a bit disappointed, because it had metallic ailerons with counterweights that are hardly compatible with the type of wing of 1942, that should have fabric-covered ones without counterweights on them (other counterweights were anyway in front of the wingtips). I wasn't able to understand if it was a modification of the author of the article, or the kit was built out of the  box.
Regards
Massimo
