it is my Hobbycraft Polikarpov I-16 Type 10 in 1/48 scale. The kit is very
simple, a real fast build. Almost no putty was needed on this one, and the fit
was excellent. I used acrylic paint by a now defunct brand, Sicko, which were
made locally here in Argentina. The exhaust stains were painted using very low
pressure, around 12 psi.
I decided to use the kit decals, the Popeye and the code letters and numbers. This was an old boxing, not a "black one", and to my surprise, the decals went on perfectly. The red stripes were all painted. All in all, the kit was a very fun build, and I enjoyed it a lot.
Enjoy the photos.
