Omega Models 1/48 I-207-3 (aircraft designers Borovkov and Florov, 1939)

Hello! This time I present a model of the Soviet experimental I-207 aircraft from Omega Models. The plane did not go into the series, because the era of biplanes was already drawing to a close. (Caliber bombs under the wing by the way 250kg).
The model was a terrible castings of resin, from the photo you can get an idea;). But my customer really wanted this particular model, I had to suffer)). One way or another, the work is done, the result is in front of you, and a pleasant, I hope, viewing!

  1. That is a beautiful little plane

  2. a one of a kind subject is always fun, and the Omega kit is also kind unknow to me at least. Despite the poor casting you mention, the finish model is perfect. The extra parts you scratch add to the quality and the paint work looks spot on. What is really y stands out is the size of those bombs hung from a tiny wing… wonder if they would not stressed in flight with the extra weight?

  3. Unique subject, nicely done!!

  4. Lots of work but a great end result

  5. Very cool! Excellent work. Love the obscure subject.

  6. I have a new favorite now.

  7. Another triumph of talent and skill over materials. Beautiful work as usual Maxim. A very unusual subject.

  8. Boy, two cantilevered wings, no rigging or interplane struts. If it weren’t for the bombs I would say this thing is ready to run at Cleveland! (My brain hurts trying to figure out how the wheels retract into the bays though. I need pictures, probably animated!) Great job on this Maxim!

  9. Beautiful!
    I was actually looking for this kit, but you cured me Maxim… 🙂
    Don’t think Tamiya is releasing this one soon, so we can assume that we have here world’s best looking BF I-107 model!

  10. Great subject – great work.

  11. Great job. That looks like it was a rough road, but you beat it!

  12. Beautifully done model of a very rare subject. Fantastic.

  13. Thank you colleagues!
