Overview
 
1/144 scale. Lisunov Li-2NB Night Bomber. Eastern Express. A Soviet license-built version of the Douglas DC-3, the Li-2 was produced under the direction of aeronautical engineer Boris P. Lisunov, who personally spent two years, from 1936-1939, at the Douglas Aircraft Co. in the US translating the design. Orignially a civilian transport operated by the Soviet airline Aeroflot under the name PS-84, a large number of the aircraft were taken into the Soviet air forces after the German invasion in the summer of 1941.  Renamed Li-2, the aircraft were armed and somewhat redsigned for use as long-range bombers, and many specifically did duty as night bombers.
