    One of our Polish paper modelers has shown his amazing new project - airliner IL-18 (1:50 scale).

    Wow... He writes "I am new here and want to show this to you" so casually...
    It looks absolutely great. The interior must be so tiny!
    Whole model should be about 75 cm long (and wide), if I am counting it right...
    This will be great if it is released (any possible way) :)

    (I am still gathering courage for the Il-14 from Konradus, which is only twin-engine, but in glorious 1:33 scale :)

    You Europeans really have this modeling ting down. I too have been trying to build courage to make the Il-14, and this looks like a beauty also. Incredible!! :)

    That is a stunning piece of modelling! I've always been of fan of Soviet era propliners.The Il-18 is an impressive aircraft and especially in this scale.

    Cheers,

    These models are impossible to get in the U.S. at a reasonable price, so, there goes another one! :(

    Oddly enough Orlik's online shop carries a bunch of other publishers including GPM. They sell this plane for $27.13 plus shipping. The shipping is what will get you, but you can reduce the damage by ordering several kits at once to defray the costs.

    BTW-their shipping cost estimator is a little funky. What they do is estimate the shipping, shich is a very highball price, then refund the difference when it is shipped. I placed an order for the USS Ward for $16.96, and the Michael Wittman Tiger for $17.64. The initial estimate for shipping was $15.60. They shipped it, refunded $6.95 in shipping 2 days after the order was placed, and I recieved the kits 8 days after placing the order. They also shipped registered mail in a very heavy package.

    I was very impressed with their service and value.
