    1/72 Metal Aircraft WWII


    Recommended Posts

    Not really military modelling, as with this collection of 50 metal aircraft of the WWII the planes are already entirely made when bought, only have to glue a few pieces, such as the wheels, the guns, antenas, and some minor stuff, anyway I guess this would be the right place to post a few.

    Starting with the Polikarpov I-16 (USSR)

    Dah..... :sleep: I guess you would be right!! :P

    1/72 is my favorite scale for military.


    Yes, a nice scale, and the one for which one can find almost everything for helping on dioramas, and probably with the largest variety of items to chose from. It's also a nice scale to stock stuff ;) I just don't know where I'd stock 50 of these birds if they were on 1/32 scale :P

    Who makes these items and can you post a link to their website?


    They are made by "Ediciones Altaya" in Spain, and distributed in different countries in Europe, as far as I know at least in France, Spain and Portugal.

    Here is the direct link for this particular collection, on their site in Spain:


    They have many other collections and as I don't know if you can read Spanish that's why I'm directing you to the exact link to this "Combat Airplanes of WWII" collection.

    Right now here in Portugal #38 was released last week, so next week #39 (another USSR plane, Ilyushin Il-10) should be available. One new aircraft every two weeks, 9.99Euros each! That's pretty cheap if compared with similar aircrafts from other well known manufacturers.

    I have no idea if these are available in the US, anyway hope it helps,

    Latest addition to the collection.

    Ilyushin II-10 (USSR)

    The pilot of this aircraft was Captain V.A.Alekseyenko, of the 15th Aerial Attack Guards Regiment (not sure if the translation is 100% accurate!), March 1945.

    The Guards Badge can be seen painted on both sides of the plane.

    Captain Alekseyenko was twice awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, and as can be seen he had the Gold Star painted twice on both sides of his aircraft too.
