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.

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.

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

T.B. Yes for what its worth,with the glass in place you can see the seats. lol

M.M. The top seam I use 000 steal wool been useing it along time. These airliners are a different skill set I like the change.

Hi Crown rn7;

    Yeah, I will build one in a break from everything else. I like the plethora of A.M.decals for them. But If I can show off the office, even better.

T.B. I started the decal process with Funderkals very thin and tricky. 

the 1st side was the tial and the red band that goes on in 2 sections.

the left side I applied the windows. Thats one of the tricky parts once its goes on it can only be adjusted for so much then it breaks in to a mess of folded windows.

Airliners you gotta love them.

John and Jon. thankyou.

I gave the plane an over all wash with black pastels, I'm working to get that eastern European winter look. Last year at this time I was in Budapest airport snowy and wet. Those planes got dirty. I placed the flaps in the down position more to follow.

The wheels are in place and gear doors. I gave a pastel wash over all then some raw umber oil paint streaks and what not, still some stuff to do.

I'm pretty much done with the weathering part. I did spray a light coat of Tamiya semi-gloss its the same effect I get when I shoot Tamiya's flat clear thinned more then usual any way I had to gave it a try.

Will post finished pics after the 12/17 maintenance.

Nice model, crown r n7!

When I was in my pre-teens in the mid-1950s, I bought what I recall as a special edition of Air Progress magazine. It consisted of nothing but hundreds of small line drawings of international aircraft, perhaps 10 or 15 per page. I literally wore out that magazine, memorizing names and shapes of the most interesting aircraft. I was living in remote Southwestern New Mexico at the time, where aircraft of any type were few and far between.  

I remember noticing that the illustrated aircraft were mainly German, British, French, and American. I assumed that meant that those countries were the only ones that were building airplanes — more evidence, to my politically immature mind, that the Soviet Union, the “Russians,” were so technologically behind that they couldn’t build airplanes! It’s not wrong to say that I was…wrong! Or that American and Soviet propaganda had effectively prevented me from knowing more about Russian aviation. Except for one plane, the MiG-15, which newsreels assured us were being downed by the score in Korea by superior Americans aircraft and pilots. 

A few years ago, at a flea market here in Vancouver, I bought a plastic bag of perhaps 20 used Russian air letters that had been posted to various addresses in Canada and the U.S. Every one of them had a cachet (printed designs, text, and images at the left of the envelope) picturing Russian airliners. Here are two that pictured the IL-62:

Bobstamp. Thanks for stopping by and you comment. The airmail envelopes of those days brings back those memories and with onion skin paper ! The IL-62 was their flagship plane to our 707 until 1968. The IL-62 was to complete with the commet and the 707 but the IL-62 had some problems and was delayed.
