Thanks, everyone.  :-flo

I must say that the camouflage is a "best-guess" at what it should have looked like. I found some profiles and three-views of other RHAF aircraft and used the basic pattern for this model. I enjoyed doing it this way as it is something different, but it still doesn't exactly represent history, just my interpretation of a historical event. I usually don't care to speculate on military models, but this airplane was so unusual that I did it anyway. :-roll If I ever find some really good photos of this ship I will definitely correct my mistakes. Until then, I'll put it on the shelf and dust it now and then!

After doing some research on the Hungarian Air Force for this project I find the need for a Reggiane Re.2000 kit........ :-love

I have been searching out different schemes since I got back into building. Captured airplanes are very interesting to me. For example, I would like to build a Luftwaffe-operated P-47 or Spitfire. Another fun choice would be one of the German aircraft flown by the RAF or the hand-painted Fw 190s captured by the USAAF later in the war. In fact, I still may paint my little Fw 189 as the Soviet operated airplane that No.1 sent me a photo of.

When I first saw the Hungarian insignia on the Il 2 drawing I knew I wanted to build it, and I'm glad y'all liked it. Doing the research on the Sturmovik has gotten me quite excited about building some more RHAF machines in the future.
