1/72 - Polikarpov I-153 by ICM - released - new boxing released


Recommended Posts

Hot damn!!! Finally, after 3 years of fading hope! Thank you so much for this information - I can't wait to get my hands on this one. I foresee another Begemot super decal sheet in the (I hope) not-too-distant future, too. This is excellent news - happy day! :thumbsup:

Thanks Homebee for pointing out the existance of the 1/48 kit but my wallet has taken a lot of beating this year and with just a month's bonus to boast,I have to wait for a cheaper version of the Chaika.Thanks again.

I'm concerned about the leading edge of the upper wing (which seems to have been moulded in one piece). The way the light is playing on it in the photo above. Let us hope that it is not warped.

The SBS resin/photoetch set looks very good; thanks for posting it. One thing no one makes yet which I'd like to see for this kit is a pair of main landing gear doors in resin - in real life, these have a noticeable tire clearance bulge and a slight curvature, but the kit parts are dead flat. Here's an image which shows what I mean:

To me, this seems more useful than a replacement rudder, having built two of these kits and modifying these doors myself on both of them.

So both the Revell kit and the Hasegawa kit are from the ICM mould. Interesting - looks like I'll be picking up some more Chaikas.

Regards,

Jason
