    Default Official Ilya Muromet Painting Thread

    These are Shapeway 1/144 Ilya Muromets type V made by Kampfflieger models. They are fantastic models that are very easy to work with. I hit them with a few coats of spray primer and painted away. The decals are from 1/144 Direct and are gorgeous. The gunners are Shapeway 1/144 Standing Observers (Entente) made by Reduced Aircraft Factory. Thanks to Keith Upton, Oberst Hajj, for the fantastic bases. The Aerodrome makes it so easy is to do custom base design. As special thanks to Zoe Brain for a paint recommendation. Zoe suggested using Chroma's Josonja Artists' Colours Moss Green. You were bang on as I think the color is perfect. I need to thanks Dave. Flash, for the great Russian Air Force Book he sent and was a great reference.

    Awesome. These look great Jim.

    Reading about the Ilya Muromets I see a version had a gunner at the end of the tail. Now to find a photo or drawing of this. Maybe the Shapeways version could be modified to have a tail gunner.

    Great job, Jim.
    I bought some of those (and other) gunners from RAF, intending to use them in my Fe.2bs but decided they are too small for my shaky hands to finish properly.
    Maybe if I get another pair .... (planes , not hands)

    Must. Stay. Away. From. Russian. Front.
