I 16 type 24

This is a I 16 type 24 in 1/32 scale by ICM with Eduard’s photoetch for interior and exterior. This is a “no paint” version. I found some reference on line about the construction materials of the soviet airplane of this period. This is a link http://www.redbanner.co.uk/History/surface/I16_surface.html

    Hard to believe this is simulated wood.

    A very illustrious model in every angle Carlo.
    The wooden panel effects and the aluminum sheen makes for a prominent and visually striking contrast so well accomplished. This really is a delight to watch.
    Thank you for sharing these images.
