The aircraft


“A ground-attack aircraft produced by the Soviet Union in large numbers during the Second World War. With 36,183 units of the Il-2 produced during the war … making it the single most produced military aircraft design in aviation history.” [1]

“Joseph Stalin paid the Il-2 a great tribute in his own inimitable manner: when a particular production factory fell behind on its deliveries, Stalin sent an angrily worded cable to the factory manager, stating ‘They are as essential to the Red Army as air and bread … I demand more machines. This is my final warning!'” [1]

The kit


Tamiya 1/48 kit [2].
