I think Artesania supplies the Model Space (D'Agostino) kits.Don't forget the Hasegawa offering,and if you don't need the cowl and panels, there is also the Model Airways kit.
Cheers,
Dave.

Deagostini of Russia had a 1/32 Ilya Mouromets in progress last i knew. thing is though looking at the total price of the subscription, i'td buy several WNW kits. on ebay. today. including a Gotha G.IV. so i'm not *that* tempted.

but i could be talked into it. anyone know anything about this monster? if, say, the Ilya Mouromets is one of your favorite planes (like me for example) is it worth it? or should i, when my skillz get there (if ever).. scratch it Harry Woodman style?

Imagine what WNW would have done with it,sighing wistfully.

That airplane is worth its own topic..
I must admit that i have never even heard of the Ilya Mouromet before...
Looks very interesting and there is only the D'agostini i can see thats a wood build......

As for a scratch build i dont see any plans to work from either..
