HobbyBoss 1/32 scale Il-2 Sturmovik on skis

HobbyBoss supplies a decal instrument panel that fits the kit part perfectly and responds well to setting solution, settling over the raised detail.

HobbyBoss’ newly tooled Il-2 is molded in medium gray, slightly soft plastic. The kit’s 11 sprues are individually bagged with the exception of the weapon trees, which are both in the same bag. A separate box inside contains the clear parts, some photoetched metal, and vinyl ammunition belts for guns. The kit’s surface detail includes finely engraved panel lines and rivets.
