This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.
Tamiya gets ground attack-happy with this stunning ALL-NEW release of the burly tank-busting Ilyushin IL-2 Shturmovik Russian attack aircraft, the most-produced aircraft in history! Again, this is a completely NEW TOOLING from Tamiya, not a reboxing of any other kit. The model represents the swept-wing version of the Shturmovik, and includes 23mm wing cannons with 2 options for fairings, 100kg and 250kg bombs, RS-132 rockets (with choice of three types of rocket launchers), figures, and stunning detail in the cockpit, landing gear, and exterior. Markings are provided for three variations. Includes masking seals for painting the canopy.
