    Accurate Miniatures IL2 1/48

    Alrighty then... This is my first model in well (thinking) I am 37 now and the last one I did was an F14 when I was about 11 or 12.

    I bought this kit off a local hobby shop a couple years ago and its been sitting in my garage since then. The paints and stuff are a mix of stuff I bought off of Craigslist and a few things I picked up myself.

    I do have an airbrush (benefit of being an art major in college I guess) but I never did really get the groove on with it because I never bothered to follow through with trying to learn it at the time. But hey its a double action Badger so I sure it will work. I'll figure it out...

    I almost bought a Dauntless or Wildcat yesterday as the paint scheme would have been easier but I need to finish this and I really like the VVS aircraft. I also have no directions for this kit. I emailed Accurate Miniatures and told them what I had. They sent me back a link for the 2 seater. I emailed back and told them I had the single seater with wheels not skis and requested the instructions. I have yet to get a response. I figure I'll get my with the directions I have. After all its just one less seat right???
    :rolleyes:

    So here it is 10/07/2009 Post 1 to show what I have. Friday I shall get busy and post more shots as I go along.

    Any critiques, hints and tips along the way GREATLY appreciated.

    Hiya LN, this place sucks you back into model building doesn't it? (same thing happened to me).

    Really looking forward to seeing your work - great choice.
