ICM 1/72 I-153 (Winter Version)

December 17, 2021 · in Aviation · · 12 · 1.3K

This has been lying in it's box incomplete for 2 years, but has finally been completed.
Primed with Neutral Grey
Painted with Tamiya Flat Aluminium, Light Grey Nato Black and Flat White.
Citadel Nuln Oil and Seraphim Sepia washes.
Exhaust staining Tamita Weathering pastels.
Finished with Newton & Windsor Matt Varnish and Precision Ice and Snow Krycell.
Rigged with Uschi Van Der Rosten Standard.

A nice little if fiddly kit but I really seem to have problems with plastic.
I find it very soft and takes a long time to set with Tamiya Extra Thin so I switched to using Contacta.
Thanks for looking,

  1. Another really fine model, Alistair! Nothing better than tackling an already started model and finishing it!

  2. Looks very cool covered in snow (no pun intended)! Well done.

  3. Nice work Alistair @alistairfgauld.

    I have not had problems with ICM and Tamiya Extra Thin - dumb luck?

  4. Very nice little kit, Alistair @alistairfgauld
    The winter camouflage looks amazing.

  5. The watercolor winter distemper camo is one of the harder paint jobs to pull off. It looks real good.

  6. Nice job, the snow on the winter scheme came out great!
