Good day,

Has anyone see a kit for this plane ?

see information at http://www.ilyushin.org/en/press/news/ev3030/?print=y

The plane did not successfully fly from Moscow to New-York, to attend the World Fair but crash landed on Miscou Island, a few kilometers from here. I have several photographs of the plane on Miscou Island, including it's dismanteling before being returned in pieces to Russia.  I wrote an article on the subject for our local history association. It's in French but I still include a link to it: http://gofile.me/218ZA/TnKs3PEE . 

The plane was painted in two tones of red. It seems correctly represented at http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/db3-il4/tapanidb3/moskva.htm .

The closest I've found is a Maquette Db3 but it would need some modifications, mainly to remove the gun turret.

Thanks

I've never seen this plane before, but a conversion of the Db3 you mentioned would be a pretty neat build to watch.

Well, I'm making progress.

Found this last week: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/131757128726 

It seems the mask is simply for the white letters  "MOCKBA". Not sure how the mask would be applied underneath as the lettering goes over the engines etc.

Ordered this and a db3 kit (seems to be a reboxing of the Maquette kit) :http://www.ebay.ca/itm/172133906974?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT 

Your comments welcomed.
