Il-2 Type 3
This is 1/72 Eduard Il-2 Type 3 kit, Profipack version which includes PE and resin parts.   I have decided to build it in the colours of Yugoslav AF.  Yugoslavia was the third biggest Il-2 operator and received its first examples in 1944. They were painted in standard VVS brown/green camo. 'White 14' which I build was used in some night ops training in 1946 and its upper surfaces were given an overall darkgrey layer which was a bit transparent, so an original camo was seen under it.
