Coot Dreams: An IL-18 Wishlist
Aeroclassics has to date made only 15 IL-18s using its fine mould for the type and even this doesn't illustrate the lack of representation since among the 15 there were 2 Air Koryos and 3 Interflugs really on differentiated by their registrations. With the reappearance of the mould under the Yu ModeL label there remains some small hope that some new IL-18s may appear.
Certainly there is plenty of scope for new IL-18s. The type saw wide service among the Warsaw Pact nations and other Soviet allies in Cuba and a surprisingly wide number of African nations. Here are 28 further options for the type.
I'd be keen to add many of these IL-18s to my fleet but for me the top 10 would be:

Air Guinee, Air Mali and Aero Caribbean would be stellar. That said, this post made me realize that both Ghana Airways and Cubana operated IL-18s and Bristol Britannias! Wouldn't that be exciting to model? A Britannias and IL-18 in the same livery? Wow! We're they operated at the same time? We're there any other airlines that flew both?
