I may have to add that to my airliner collection.  Great looking bird and love the LOT livery.

Hello!

Lookin' good! Those bad boys were once the pride of Polish national airlines (LOT). Unfortunately two of them crashed killing everyone onboard - one in 1980, other in 1987. Here's a photo in the Polish livery:

Good luck with your build and have a nice day

A friend flew into mainland China and told me the IL-62 he was on souded like the engines were rusted when they started up!  He said it was the only airliner he had flown on that scared him!

But the IL-62 looks like a VC-10, and both are aesthetically pleasing designs.

I will follow your build with interest.

What I see of this kit I like. I'm going to try some new or old tricks for me on this build. I still have the dilemma of what livery East German,Cuban and two types of Russian? but that's down the road. Thanks for stopping by kg4pg.
