1/32 Azur Polikarpov I-16, Repblican Forces, Spain, September 1938

Recommended Posts

I wanted to have a "play-mate" for my previously posted Eduard Bf109E-1 from J/88, so I built an Azur I-16 I had in the stash. Not a bad little kit, the wing attachment was a bit fiddely, and since there is no seam where the parts join, it took a bit of work to smooth out the curve at the wingroots and the underside of the fuselage. The kit is OOB except for the gear retaction wires (made from fishing line) and the pitot tube. I still need to do the gunsight one of these days, but it looks good in the case with the 109 nonetheless :)

Great looking Mosca, Doug! The Ishak has always been one of my favourite planes. I need to get one to put next to my Hobby Boss IL-2 (whenever I finish it).
