Hi all fellow modellers.

This is my latest work, the nice but wrong Hasegawa kit. Perfect fitting, but some inaccuracies in wings surfaces, tail and rear fuselage width.

I didnt fix these issues, and still looks like a I-16!

The build was very easy and pleasant with almost no putty, except a few fine lines in the wing roots. The nightmare come when I choose the ICM decals, which shattered at minor contact with water, didnt stick, didnt conform and was about to ruin this model.

Hope you like it:














Bye for now...

..considering how tiny this kit must be in 1/72, built some in 1/48 and they were already tiny
nice work and greetings to Argentina!

I like it very much!
I noticed the subtle yet convincing lights-and-shadows job you did on the clothed areas of wings and tail.

Beautiful model all around. I love it!

Saludos,

Fabian
