Hello everybody!

The old ICM kit (repack by MSD). The main problem of the kit, it's the absolutely wrong canopy form. So the canopy and some of the other elements were made by hand. 
List of the handmade parts: 
- gun barrells and pito tube were turned of steel;
- exhaust tubes were turned as well of copper wire and then painted by lifecolor acrylic;
- restraining strap on the bonnet was turned from aluminium rod as a thin ring. Yes I know, to cut out from aliminium foil is more simple way, but so it's looks better.
There is no historical prototype for camouflage scheme.

With as much detail as some put in to 1/32 builds, that is a great model, mate.

Hi Maverick,

 

Lovely I-16.

 

Would you mind providing more details of how you did the bonnet strap? It looks great (and I have an ICM I-16 in my near future).

 

Regards,

David

Hello, David!

 

Bonnet strap in this case, it's simple aluminium ring was made on the lathe. Thickness approx. 0.05mm, width something about 0.8mm and diameter equal bonnet diameter.

 

With best wishes,

Sergey

That's a real beauty and some fine modelling.  I know how small this aircraft is in 1/72 which makes the paint finish even more impressive.

Hi Sergey,


Thanks for the information. I hadn't considered using a metal lathe (although I do have access to my fathers lathe...). 

 

Kind regards,

David
