  1. Nicely done. When building the Tamiya kit, be mindful of the main gear doors, as you have reversed them with this kit. Cheers Randy
  2. Nicely done model. My only criticism is the way the clear parts look like an afterthought, as they do match the rest of the airframe. Clear parts and the way some modeller's address them are a pet peeve of mine. Cheers Randy
  3. You are not alone. I have also started the Type 17, but it languishes on the shelf at this time. Cheers Randy
  4. Thanks much. It is my understanding that Romania used only one I-16. Cheers Randy
  5. Thanks Joachim. If I were to do them again, I would probably weather them a bit more, as they are a little too pristine. Cheers Randy
  6. Thanks much. Can't say as I really love the Rata. This was just a phase I was going through. Cheers Randy
  7. Hi all There was a comment posted last week stating how you don't often see the Hobby Craft 1-16 kits. I think the rationale for that is the fact the kits are a mishmash and out of the box, do not accurately represent any specific variant. So, with that being said, I present five I-16's which I built back in 1999. I have tried to correctly represent each of the variants I modelled, but good references were not thick on the ground at that time, so I am sure there are some inaccuracies. Each kit received a Medallion resin cockpit (remember that company?), new exhaust pipes and vacuform canopy, as well as a litany of other small modifications. They are shown below in order of Type 6, 10, 18, 24 and 29. Many years after completing these kits, a found a photo which shows the Type 29 and it should have yellow wingtips on top as well. Oh well. Cheers and thanks for looking. Randy
  8. Here is my interpretation of a Far East Mohawk. It is finished in Dark Earth/Dark Green over Medium Sea Grey, as per the info found in Gerry Beauchamp's books Mohawks Over Burma and Curtis Hawk 75. Cheers Randy
  9. I built mine in 2001. I did not add any extra support, nor did I pin the legs and it is still holding up perfectly. Now don't get me started on the Scratchbuilders 1/32 Shinden. It came with white metal legs and after a week it looked like Bambi on ice. Cheers Randy
