Eduard 1/48 I-16 type 29, pilot- Lt. P.Kharitonov, summer 1941
But freshly baked model, fresh from the oven :). Model I-16 in view of the company Eduard is probably not needed, all it knows. I added a some cabin equipment and replaced the vacuum canopy. Forehead etched hood, from the little-known (yet))) Russian producer Gonza. Yes, still made hanging tanks.
As a prototype, I chose I-16 Lt. Peter Kharitonov. This pilot is one of the first hero of the Soviet Union at the beginning of the war, made two rams, and ended the war with 14 victories.
Gunze acrylic painted model, the colors green and black bothered by eye, in a fairly similar. Decal from the firm Бегемот- 100 variants of I-16!
I hope you enjoy the model, all enjoy!
