Polikarpov I-153 'Seagull' (model 1938) (Směr 1:72)


Recommended Posts

Greetings, comrades! 
A new addition to the shelf and one of the iconic planes has been painted. I think there is no point in telling about the kit, it has been known to many people since the old days, it looks fine to me... Since the decals in the kit were fictional, I decided to train in painting by choosing a prototype I came across a long time ago. 
Model modifications: made cockpit, door, sight glazing, finalized engine cowl (intake, machine guns, flaps, coupler, nozzles), finalized propeller, made landing gear recesses, finalized struts and wheels, made PVD, swashplates, BANO, aileron and tail loops. 
Painting: GSI Mr.Color urethane-acrylic, Tamiya lacquer, futura, +plain pencil. Decals from kit. 
Enjoy the ride!

Nicely done, Sir.

 

Whatever might be said of the kit's accuracy (and trust me, there's lots) this old Heller kit is so superbly engineered I would far rather build another one than any of the new modern ICM kits.

 

Great model.

Oh I like it.. Ive got one of these on the way and was trying to figure out a scheme. You made the decision for me. 

 

These came out of the factory in a handsome scheme: aluminum dope fabric and pale grey metal surfaces.

Excellent job on that Chaika! Some of those early Great Patriotic War schemes were quite interesting!
