Accurate Miniatures 1/48th scale Il-2 single seater

"White 82 - Valerij Chkalov"

Model built between December 2008 & October 2012

 

All details of this build can be found here. Details of the kit and accessories can be found here. The scheme is from the AML decal sheet 48 026 "Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik single-seater". The fuselage inscription reads "Valerij Chkalov", the name of a famous Soviet test pilot who was killed testing the Polikarpov I-180 fighter on December 15th 1938. The aircraft carries a small tactical number, White 82, along with a white identification strip on the rudder. The rear of this aircraft is seen pictured on page 15 of Squadron/Signals Publication "Il-2 Stormovik In Action" ISBN 0-89747-341-8 (1995). This is a machine belived to have fought in Estonia in 1944.

 

This model is displayed on a base of hard-wood with a top of air-drying clay shaped to represent the wooden logs used as planks to create temporary runways on the eastern front during the Great Patriotic War. I could find no visual reference to these planked runways and have only read descriptions. So this was guesswork - but it looks reasonable. Grass tufts are by Joefix. CMK bombs. Crates/oil barrels from EBay.
