Those clear parts don't look great TBH

On a test shot, I don't expect them to look crystal clear. I'm sure before production begins they'll get the final polish on the molds done.

Were IL-28's NMF? Or were they painted silver/aluminum lacquer? I'd love to do a NMF, but of course only if it actually existed...

Wow, that box art is really something. I'd love to have a Hi-Res version. That would make a great desktop background.

Every pic of a "silver" colored I could find online appeared to be painted. You can tell by the monotone color. Still looks nice, but NMF would have been cool :dontknow:

Yes, I would have thought it's painted, in keeping with other USSR machines of the era. Just the box art suggests NMF, and it looks so good...

So many of the early Soviet/Russian jet aircraft were such ungainly looking machines. This one is really rather attractive. Clean smooth lines. Balanced symmetry. And now, torpedoes! What's not to like. I agree with you Jeffrey, it would look really good in NMF.

 I had a discussion with the Head of German Airforce Museum (Gatow/Berlin), Lt.Col. Leonhard about their Il-28. They got this plane camouflaged (see Diego's post) as a target tug, flew in early 80's. Today the Gatow-Il is silver painted - and I'm not convinced that this was originally  the case. Lt.Col. Leonhard mentioned that they found during restauration layers of silver colour under the camouflage. Another hint  could be that the radome (on some pics) seems to be silver as well (originally green plastic). So my POV is still - delivered NMF, maybe later painted. It is known that East German AF made experiments with at least 4 silver painted MiG-21F-13 at this time.

Floggerman, thanks for posting the link to the Gatow museum. An amazing collection of aircraft.

My memory may be incorrect, but I understood that Soviet aircraft were delivered in natural metal, but all had a protective clear sprayed over the finish as corrosion control.  This clear protective coat was a clear with silver pigment mixed in.  Not enough to make it opaque and that panel differences would show through the protective coating.

My grandfather flew the Beagles (sadly, he's passed a long time ago); they all were unpainted (except markings) and unpolished, as my father remembered. An aluminium paint was used on a museum airframes.

And if I understood it correctly, an anticorrosion finish was applied on a Soviet planes in late 70s or an eary 80s. So it's a bit different times.

Balanced symmetry. I thought symmetry was usually pretty balanced.
