I-16 Models




Builder's notes: "This particular machine should represent an I-16 Type 10 of G. D. Tsokolyaev, Hero of the Soviet Union, who flew it over Leningrad in 1942.  The original plane had wheel covers removed, but they were installed all the same on the model because (the) I-16 looks much better with wheel covers.  Actually I had Hobbycraft kit originally but as I saw that it is just a toy model I swap it for MPM kit. It is harder to be assembled but I didn't regret (it)."
