Homage to the lovely little Yak 3 and Polikarpov i-16. Realistic Ikea chopping board.
Needed to do this but space for 1/32 builds is limited. Very nice little Eduard kits. Fiddly in bits but fun. Amazing that USSR could produce such modern cockpit canopies (on the Yaks) when you compare birdcage Hurricanes and even Mustangs. Not to mention “Car Door” Typhoons! The i-16 is amazing. Looks like s**t but gave 109E’s a bit of a fright. Also helped in the battle against Franco. Wind up that undercarriage!
No weathering. Come on! I’ve only just learned how to not get canopies covered in gluey fingerprints!
