Intermission – Impulse buying?

Last time Jeff, the Inch High Guy, posted his rendition of Tamiya IL-2 in 1/72.

I was wonderting if Tamiya made a 1/48 version…

Jeff said I was in luck when he replied to a comment I made on his blog.

So I got curious…

 

I should have stop searching for information on Tamiya IL-2…

This 1/48 version gets rave reviews.

This is last review was the clincher!

Highly recommended.   This is another winner from Tamiya. I really enjoyed the build.  The fit is fabulous, and detail is fine to boot.  I don’t normally build Soviet subjects, but I’m glad I built this one, and I’m very proud of the result.

Review kit courtesy of my wallet. The kit isn’t cheap, but you get what you pay for. (And if you shop around, you can get it for less than MSRP.  I got mine at the local shop for 40% off during their end-of-year sale.)  

Amazon just keeps on reminding me it’s just a click away for CDN$ 54.89 with free shipping, and I know there is only one way to stop it…
