Eduard 1/48 I-16 type 29, pilot- Lt. P.Kharitonov, summer 1941

January 13, 2013 · in Aviation · · 16 · 2.6K

But freshly baked model, fresh from the oven :). Model in view of the company 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!
