While my modest collection of Soviet WW2 aircraft now contains not only fighters, ground attack and bombers, it lacks any transport capacity. The numerically most significant type of this period was the Li-2, a licence produced version of the DC-3 already operated by Aeroflot. As the Li-2 was basically identical to the DC-3, and I happened to have a kit of the latter (Minicraft) in stock, the result was rather inevitable.
|The kit went together nicely and required only slight de-flashing along some joints.|
|The kit consisted of about 30 parts.|
|I bought this kit in a sale a few years ago - I think it cost about £5.|
The largely completed model. I couldn't resist adding the gun turret with which some militarised Li-2s were fitted. Mine came from the spares box.
Painted and awaiting the addition of some big red stars. I'll have to order these as I have none in the decal box.
I plan to order decals this week (thus more than doubling the cost of the model...) and will post pics of the finished model as and when.
