Eduard 1:48 I-16 type 24

March 2, 2014 · in Aviation · · 17 · 2.9K

Hello everybody!
This is the model I won on November random award, The type 24.
It is really a nice kit to build, went on without filling and sanding. Maybe, the most tricky stage was the undercarriage with all of those covers.
As always, I painted the model with Gunze acrylics and weathered with oils and pastels.

Hope you like it!

Best wishes:

  1. Congratulations on winning the award and congratulations again for doing such a nice job with it. The finish and wear is great and I have always liked the look of this stubby little aircraft.

  2. Good job: both in the build & finish.

  3. Great Rata!

  4. Wow. That's a great looking model. Great paint and shadfing. I-16's seem to photograph well. something about the "stance" maybe? I like the straight up shot, a real "fly (Mosca) on the wall".

  5. Hi,

    Wonderful little plane, congratulation for this beautiful job.

  6. Hey, that looks great. Good build, great paint too.
    I like the weathering especially!

  7. Thank you for showing us your well deserved prize, Emeterio, it looks just great.

  8. Some real good shading on the ailerons and elevators to bring out the details. While some of the lighter greens on the leading edge of the wing and at mid-span are subtle and to the point. The kit really is a jewel.

    Two thumbs up.

  9. fabulous job on that model...the bottom really showed off...i totally love your art

  10. Exceptional workmanship and nicely displayed...outstanding detail work, sir.

  11. Great job. And I like this I-16

    Sincerely, Vlad.

  12. Beautiful paint work and finish on this.

  13. Emoteio,
    Absolutely stunning.

  14. Nice clean build, killer paint application on the underside of the aircraft. Some folks (like me) tend not to put a lot of effort on underside detail. Great job!

  15. One of my favorite planes and it looks great! I have the Type 10 in the stash, just waiting for time to build. Your model is fantastic!

  16. Emeterio,
    Many thanks for posting. You have done a great job on this most important airplane. It makes me want to give the Eduard kit a try. A little airplane that was really something in its day.

  17. I like it! Is this a upgraded re-release of the old Hobbycraft kit, or an all new tooling?
    I was fortunate enough to see one flying at EAA about 10 years ago. It really is a neat little plane! (I really thought the gear retracting method was novel! Nice to see it on your model!)
