Lisunov Li-2 - part 2 - complete at last

You may recall me mentioning this model a few weeks ago.  The sheet of red star markings arrived and several days later, I applied some of them to the model.  Another week passed before I got round to varnishing it, so here, finally, it is!
The MG turret I added has turned out rather well and sets the Li-2 apart from it's US built brethren.
The marking scheme is entirely made up, but big red stars and a number seemed a safe bet!

Or maybe just give the Flak gunners a bigger target?

Is this a DC-3 lend-lease or something built under "contract"?

The LI-2 was a Soviet-built device - they acquired a licence in the 1930s.
