IL-2 SHTURMOVIK PLANE
I finished off my Soviet Shturmovik plane last night, quite pleased with the overall look of it. It was fun painting on the black lines and took a while to get right but I like the result.
The decals were a pain to put on, never really liked using decals, having always opted to paint my own tank markings etc before now, but with these markings looking quite hard to paint I gave it a go. Stuffed up one of the numbers on the side of the plane where it folded back on itself as I slid it off the transfer sheet and try as I might, I just couldn't rescue it. So I had to paint it on, looks ok I think. Also based and painted my flying base to match my tanks with cobbles, so picturing the plane low flying down a street strafing transport teams as he goes.
If anyone has got any tips for me on using decals I'll be interested in reading them, as I am going to be painting up my P-40 Warhawk next.
Also if any one wants to have a plane swap I'll be keen, as I have another two P-40 Warhawks I cant do anything with. Need a German Stuka if anyone wants to swap for it. Already got a British Hurricane so don't need one of those.
