Fly Model Nr. 53 I-16

I-16

The same issue of FlyModel also includes the Shturmovik Il-2 and Ju-87 (not assembled yet). The model is simple with a total build time of about 20 hours. Fit is very good except for the wheel wells, they are mismatched with openings in the wing skin and should be corrected. Another flaw is a slightly oversized canopy and wrong inscription on the right side. The white "11" insignia was the plane flown by the russian ace, Safronov. On it's right side was written "Смерть фашистам" ("Death to the fashists").
