  1. A usually reliable russian source announces ICM is to release in 2017 a 1/32nd Polikarpov I-16 kit. To be followed.

  3. Another one off the production line.... Polikarpov I-16, Type 10, 1. Squadron, Lina Base, Spain, April 1938. The kit is somewhat daunting when you're first presented with the sprues and care will be needed throughout the build, there are no major problems it's just a bit of an old school build, meaning filler on every join and wing roots with a large gap etc. I used super glue as a filler which worked quite well, the few panel lines were then re-scribed and I added a few rivets around the engine cowling. The cockpit is sparse, as the real thing and you can't really see anything other than the chair. Seatbelts are supplied in etch metal and resin exhausts are included. For the silver ring on the cowling I used a thin strip of foil tape which works from stand off scale but would have been better painted. Painting was quite straightforward and done in a day with MRP standard soviet colours from WW2. There are decals for the fin but I chose to paint this instead, the rest of the decals are nice, maybe slightly thick for the scale. For finishing I used a different method by buffing the paint back with a cloth and sanding sticks, then I rubbed pigments lightly all over the airframe to give a dusty look. I'm trying to get a bit of realism from my larger models and I've started experimenting with techniques such as not having dead straight lines on paint finishes, building in imperfections in the finish and trying not to use the conversational gloss coat, matt coat etc. and instead buff the paint back with a cloth and fine sanding sticks. I would have preferred paint masks for the markings on this build so I may move to that for future builds over 1/48. Anyway hope you can see what I'm trying to achieve Kit: Azur Polikarpov I-16, Type 10, Super Mosca Scale: 1/32 Built: OOB Paints used: MRP RLM 62, MRP-024 A II G Light Blue, Xf 7, MRP White, MRP Black, Xf 58 Weathering: Mig pigments European Earth, Desert Sand, Flory Dark Dirt Wash

  9. Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 - 1:48 ICM

    Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 1:48 ICM The I-16 was a Soviet fighter of revolutionary design. It was the worlds first low wing cantilever monoplane fighter with retractable landing gear to achieve operational status. The designer Nikolai Nikoleavich Polikarpov designed the aircraft optimised for speed with a short stubby fuselage similar to the Gee Bee racer. It was to feature cutting edge items such as a fully retractable landing gear and an enclosed cockpit. Work began in June 1933 and full scale production began in November of the same year. The aircraft was designed around the Wright Cyclone SR-1820-F-3 nine cylinder engine. The construction was a mix of wooden monocoque and wings based around chrome-molybdenum steel alloy wing spar. Original armament was a par of 7.62mm machine guns mounted outboard of the main wheels. The Type 24 aircraft featured Four machine guns, two in the original wing positions and two synchronised in the fuselage. Landing flaps replaced the original drooping ailerons, a tail wheel was also added. This variant was powered by a Shvetsov M-63 engine developing 900hp. At the start of WWII Russian had 1635 I-16 variants. During the first 48 hours of Operation Barbarossa Luftwaffe attacks on I-16 bases reduced this to only 937 aircraft. The I-16 was surprisingly good in combat against the Bf 109E with Russian pilots using its superior horizontal manoeuvrability. However later versions of the 109 would prove to be much faster, and more heavily armed. One advantage in the Russian winter was the I-16 had an aircooled engine and were more reliable. In all over half of the produced aircraft were still in service when they were replaced in 1943. The I-16 would also serve overseas with China. Germany, Romania and Finland would operate captured examples. The Spanish Republican Air Force used I-16s supplied by Russia, and after the Civil war these would be used by Spanish State Air Force, amazingly only being retired in 1952. The Kit This new tool kit arrives on two sprues with one small clear sprue containing the front windscreen, in a robust box with a lid under the outer cover. The parts are all very well moulded with nice engraved detail. There is no evidence of flash anywhere on the parts. Construction starts surprisingly enough not in the cockpit but with the wings! The bottom wing is one piece with upper left & right parts being added. The ailerons can then be added to each side. Now construction moves to the cockpit and interior. The rear cockpit bulkhead is attached and is placed inside the left fuselage half along with the front bulkhead. The cockpit floor has the seat base and rudder pedals attached and is slid into the bulkheads. The instrument panel is built up and fitted along with the pilots control column. Other controls and the lower part of the seat are then added. The engine bulkhead is then attached and the main fuselage can be closed up. The front decking with gun troughs is then added in front of the cockpit, and the rudder is now added along with the cockpit side doors. The main fuselage is now mated to the wings. The tailplanes are also added. Construction now moves to the front of the aircraft with the engine being built up. The main bearer has the engine mounting ring attached which is followed by the gear box and intake manifold. The cylinder bank is now added along with the front push rods and exhaust pipes. The engine is then fitted. The propeller then has its boss fitted and is attached to front engine cover through the vents which control cooling air to the engine. This assembly can then be fitted to the front of the fuselage along with ths side and top engine covers (these can be left open if required). The main landing gear struts and doors can now be attached along with the tail wheel . Finally the main wheels are attached. Decals A medium sized decal sheet printed by ICM is supplied with the kit. The decals are in register and appear colour dense. These aircraft did not carry many markings and this is reflected in the kit. There are enough national markings for all 4 decal options provided; 13th Sqn Baltic Fleet Aviaion, Summer 1940. 16th Fighter Regiment, South Front, Summer 1941. 72nd Mixed Regiment Northern Fleet Aviation, Summer 1941. 4th Guard Fighter Regiment, Baltic Fleet Aviation, Winter-Spring 1942. Conclusion There is no doubt this will build up to make a good looking model. I for one am a fan of this stubby looking aircraft. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  10. Hello fellow modellers, I hope you are having a pleasant weekend. I am building a 1/72nd scale Amodel Polikarpov I-16 Type 5. Unfortunately something strange happened to the canopy. It is no longer clear, it has gone a milky white and is now opaque. I live in Queensland Australia and had stored it in a little parts tin. I feel maybe humidity or some other factor related to heat caused this change, as it hasn't happened to canopies stored in normal kit boxes or zip-lock bags. It has probably been cooked! I have tried emailing Amodel and they cannot provide a canopy, only complete kits. I then found out that Falcon list an I-16 canopy in their Russian canopy 1/72 set. Unfortunately it isn't listed as an individual item in the Squadron range, so I would have to buy the complete Falcon set. It would be better value for money to buy this set than another I-16 kit, but I can't find any pictures of the Falcon set and wondered if the canopy included is the correct early type I need? It needs to be quite 'tent' shaped and fully enclosed. Does anyone know what type is in the set? Finally, I am hoping to model a Spanish Civil War Example (I know the kit has probably the wrong type of wings. I can live with this - this time ). I did wonder if anyone knows of a picture showing a SCW Polikarpov Type 5 (6?) with the later, open, round windshield rather than canopy? So far I have only seen this on type 10's, but if any type 5's like this existed my problem is solved. I have a good non-fogged one as I left it in the kit box rather than in the 'cooking' tin! I wonder why it became so fogged in that little tin, was it really that warm in there? Thank you for reading All best regards Tony
  11. Hi. Just finished my Polikarpov this morning so obviously, thought i’d share. Straight out of the box in the colours of Borsi Safonov. Finished with some olive green i had left over over from my Hunter and some UK Azure for the bottom. Lost the wee thingy on the side unfortunately but apart from the small spaz i had over losing that, has been most enjoyable. So enjoyable that I’m going to attempt it 1/32 next. Hope you enjoy the pictures. Cheers (Temporary pics due to Photobucket) Thanks for looking! Simon

  13. My old project which was started more than two years ago has undergone a sort of renaissance recently, and it's finally starting to look like it will actually be released. The subject is the Soviet biplane fighter I-3, developed by Nikolai Polikarpov. It was produced in significant numbers and served in Soviet Air Force for several years in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The model was build using old-fashioned modelling techniques without employing 3D modelling and printing (except for one part). Fuselage. Tail surfaces. Lower wing. Upper wing. One of my first experiments with 3D printing. The quality of the printed parts leaves much to be desired, but I managed to use them anyway. Radiator. Wheels. Other stuff. Sprues (those that are currently completed)
  14. Hi all, I finally gathered the courage and decided I'd join the group build. Common sense prevailed and I stuck with a project that would not take up too much space. Namely, I'm going to clean my stash of all remaining Hobbycraft I-16s. I made a few of these in my youth, unfortunately they were dumped in the bin by Mother dear after I left home . Only one survives and that's because it was being refurbished. Unnecessary bits from the Eduard and Ark kits ought to simplify things and improve accuracy. Unfortunately it seems I'm already off to a rocky start and today's work will be mostly undoing the damage I've done yesterday. The first specimen is meant to be a Type 5 and has had some work done on it, well below the 25% threshold I'd say: (In the background you can see the lone survivor, but it will not enter this GB). Reinforcements from the rear: the Eduard type 29 does not need these. I still need to raid the Ark kit for any piece it can shed. Now for my own embarrassment:undersurfaces from the other kit which I mean to build as a rocket-armed Type 24. I must have been modelling DUI because I thought at first that I could move the entire exhaust area to its correct location and only later I saw the folly of my actions. So I blanked the existing exhaustes and drilled holes in the new wrong position! I have plugged the holes with stretched sprue, now I'm left with the reinforcement and rescribing of the port side. In short I made a dog's meal of the piece. I'd like to say things can only improve from here, but I know myself...

  22. Polikarpov I-16 - 1:48 ARK models

    Polikarpov I-16 1:48 ARK models The I-16 was a Soviet fighter of revolutionary design. It was the worlds first low wing cantilever monoplane fighter with retractable landing gear to achieve operational status. The designer Nikolai Nikoleavich Polikarpov designed the aircraft optimised for speed with a short stubby fuselage similar to the Gee Bee racer. It was to feature cutting edge items such as a fully retractable landing gear and an enclosed cockpit. Work began in June 1933 and full scale production began in November of the same year. The aircraft was designed around the Wright Cyclone SR-1820-F-3 nine cylinder engine. The construction was a mix of wooden monocoque and wings based around chrome-molybdenum steel alloy wing spar. Original armament was a par of 7.62mm machine guns mounted outboard of the main wheels. At the start of WWII Russian had 1635 I-16 variants. During the first 48 hours of Operation Barbarossa Luftwaffe attacks on I-16 bases reduced this to only 937 aircraft. The I-16 was surprisingly good in combat against the Bf 109E with Russian pilots using its superior horizontal manoeuvrability. However later versions of the 109 would prove to be much faster, and more heavily armed. One advantage in the Russian winter was the I-16 had an air-cooled engine and were more reliable. In all over half of the produced aircraft were still in service when they were replaced in 1943. The I-16 would also serve overseas with China. Germany, Romania and Finland would operate captured examples. The Spanish Republican Air Force used I-16s supplied by Russia, and after the Civil war these would be used by Spanish State Air Force, amazingly only being retired in 1952. The Kit Ark seem to have taken over from Frog in Russia, as well as models under the Ark name (some of which are old Frog kits), they also represent Eastern Express and MSD. it also looks like they are now producing their own kits. From looking at Ark's website they currently have 8 different boxing's of the I-16 with different types, and markings. Markings range from Russian aircraft, Nationalist Chinese markings, through to those used in the Spanish Civil War. The ones they have sent us are 48001 a Type 10 flown by Russian Ace Valey Chkalov, and a type 18 flown by Russian Ace Vasiliy Golubev. The sprues seem to be identical for both kits, though there will be parts not used. The kits arrive in very sturdy boxes with lids that slot closed. Instructions are A4 sized (which are a bot too big for the boxes, and the sprues are not bagged. The sprues are well moulded with a mixture of raised and engraved details. To be honest the real aircraft had few details and what there is seems to be well represented. In particular the fabric details do not seem overdone at all. There is no flash present, sprue gates are normal and ejection pin marks all seem to be on the reverse side of parts. Overall in the box the parts look good. There are two main sprues, two smaller sprues; and one very small clear sprue. Decals are minimal (the real aircraft did not carry much in the way of markings) and are printed by Begemot. Construction starts with the addition of the exhaust stubs to the inside of the fuselage halves. Once these are in the instrument panel can be placed inside and the fuselage haves joined. The top cowling of the engine area is then attached. The instructions have the modeller installing the gunsight at this point, though I suspect most will leave this until near the end. Next more exhaust stubs are attached to the underside engine cowling, and then this is attached. The tailplanes, rudder, and tailcone are then added. The next step is to assemble the main wings. The lower wing is a conventional one piece, to which the two top outer parts are attached. Machine gun barrels are added to the wings. The cockpit floor is then attached to the centre section of the lower wing. To this is added the control column, and the pilots seat.No rudder pedals are supplied. Once the wing section is complete this can be attached to the fuselage. Next the engine is assembled. A fair representation of a radial engine front is provided to sit behind the front cowl (not a lot will be seen in any case), as the moulds cover more than one kit he modeller will need to take care to select the right engine cowl. The propellor and hub are attached via a pin from behind. The last stage is the construct the landing gear. This is fairly basic with the harder part being the positioning of the door parts, the tail skid is also added. Lastly engine is attached, along with the canopy is added. Canopy From some research it appears the Type 10 was fitted with a canopy to replace the windscreen. Also the Type 19 was a re-engined Type 10 so I think these should come with a canopy as to the supplied windscreen. However a small windscreen is all we get. This is well formed and clear, however the frame lines are very indistinct. Decals Decals are provided for one aircraft per kit, they are printed by Begemot. I have used Begemot decals before with no problems. They do though appear to be of continous carrier film. 48001 - Valey Chkalov - This aircraft was overall Silver with red scalloped details. The small decal sheet just supplies the red start for all 6 locations, through the ones for the upper wing are silver outlines to go on top of the red. A set of printed masks is supplied to mask the red which is a great idea. These will need to be cut out but it is much better than trying to sort this making out for yourself. 48034 - Vasiliy Golubev - This aircraft was standard Green over light blue grey. Stars are provided for 6 positions along with code numbers and a badge for the right side. Conclusion This is the first kit I have seen from ARK and I am impressed. While the I-16 has been done in this scale before this kit is a good one. The kit seems to be an accurate representation of the I-16. It is not too complex so should appeal to the newer modeller, or the more experienced wanting an easier build. The aces boxing with the masks to produce the red scalloped markings is a nice touch. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of ARK models are currently seeking a UK distributor. If anyone wishes to look into this feel free to contact them, or get in touch with Britmodeller and we can make an introduction.
