According to ICM homepage new version of Rata is to be out in January - Polikarpov I-16 type 28

 

Even more on Hannants as future releases ...

 

Polikarpov I-16 type 29 WWII Soviet Fighter NEW - IV quarter

Polikarpov I-153 WWII Soviet Fighter (100% new molds) NEW - II quarter

Polikarpov I-153 (winter version) WWII Soviet Fighter NEW - IV quarter

Bucker Bu-131D WWII German Training Aircraft (100% new molds) NEW - I quarter

So looks like we finally have a company that will bite into Soviet WWII airplanes...Yaks...LaGG-s.. Lavochkas hope they are coming !!!

I guess I had better build by Silver Wings kit. Before the plastic version arrives.

 

how about just a straight up I-15?

Oh the I-153 and Bu-131 will need to happen 

 

I love the Bucker 131 and 133 and I am not all that copacetic with the Planet Models kits so this should be awesome. 

 

I too would like a I-15 (and maybe an I-5, I-3 and R-4 but who am I to beg.....pretty please [especially the I-3] )

I'll take IM every time.  Glad ICM is filling this void.  Resin is is good with details but not so okay with price when you are talking full kits.  Unfortunately Silver wings kits are pricey.

I hope these sell well and encourages them to do more LSP's. Imagine them upscaling their Do-17 or their Mig-25 :frantic: Not too crazy about the Bucker myself (purely personal taste) but I definitely want the I-153.

That's the thing with ICM, they're quite easy on the wallet. B)

Those same thoughts crossed my mind a few months ago, when I learned they had more in the pipeline.

I'm just happy to finally see some WW2 Russian stuff finally getting mainstream appeal. But the I-15 will be very welcome if they do one someday soon.

IMHO, the ICM I-16 is Wingnut Wings quality at a Revell price. . . Wish it had been an earlier version (Spanish Republican Rata), but I like the I-153 (as opposed to the I-15) just fine.  The Finnish version would be especially appealing!

If neglect of the I-16 type 5 and 10 persist then we may have to start a kit bashing/how to thread using special hobby kits.

Hopefully they don't include the same problems their 1/48 kit had in 1/32.  Vector released a set that pretty much replaces the entire front end to fix the issues with the 1/48 Chaika
