Looks not bad other than the overdone sagging fabric effect on the wings. The Gavia kit is far better in this respect. The throttle detail looks flat and will need replaced, the engine looks nice but not sure about these nice comfy cushions on the seats. Cant see any wheels on sprues so assume skis only? Think I'll hold on to my Gavia one for now until I read more reviews.

Maybe now ICM will concentrate on the 1/72 I-153 which was on their 2011 release list. :tumble:
