    Hello Everyone!
    I would like to show off my first model originally recolored by me but greatly improved by Sergey. Its my personal livery from the game IL2 Sturmovik 1946. I have another livery (or two I may do later if this proves popular)



    I am hoping someone can beta build this for me as I have yet to see it built. If someone can take this I will send it to them for free. I would like to see this built right away so keep that in mind of you would like to take this on! Your pics will be used on the sales page with proper credit of course and a link back to your build thread here!

    I typically have lots of models I need beta built for the shop (to get pics AND to help the designers verify their designs) so if you cant beta build now but might be interested in the future please do let me know.

    Chris, you know you can count on me. You also know I have a few other things going on right now, but if need be, I'll take a crack at it. Corsair's have always been a love of mine. My Dad worked on them at the begining of the Korean war. Still have a pic of him sitting in one he worked on. He pasted away last May. Still miss him. My best.

    Sorry to hear about your loss :( do you have any info on that plane he was in? Might be able to work something out :)

    I know you are pretty bust with other builds but look me up when free and if the beta is still available you got it!

    Hello Cgutzmer,

    I also play Il-2. Great sim! :thumb: I think it puts some of the card models I've built into context; knowing a little of how each plane is to fly makes it much more interesting.

    What's your callsign? (mine is [^]Romanator) Maybe we could do a coop or dogfight?

    Glad to see the model up on your site. I'm finishing another Beta so I can't help out. For anyone interested in this model, the coloring is very cool and promises to be a real sharp-looking model.

    Its actaully quite a bit different than it was back when you tried it - its much neater :)

    nice colour scheme, be interesting to see what a P51 lightning would look like with a similar colour scheme.
