Today we publish short review from the box about model of soviet WWII fighter I-16 Type 28 in 1/32 scale made by ukrainian manufacturer ICM. At this momet it’s second model in 32th scale by ICM. First was I-16 Type 24.
Box-art is very nice and colourful. Box contains three sprues with 109 plastic details, one clear frame with 8 details, decal sheet for 2 variants of fighter and assembly/painting guide.
Details are perfect and accurate quality. Pilot cabin and engine compartment is nice reproduced.
Decal sheet contains “red stars”, white numbers and dashboard.
I think, it’s very big and very nice model of soviet “Ishachok” I-16 fighter. Highly recommended for all modellers, who like models of WWII fighters in really huge scale.
Thanks, dear ICM team for one more nice and quality model!
Short info about Polikarpov I-16 by Wikipedia:
I-16 Type 28 was modified version of Type 24 with two ShKAS and two ShVAK.
The Polikarpov I-16 was a Soviet fighter aircraft of revolutionary design; it was the world’s first low-wing cantilever monoplane fighter with retractable landing gear to attain operational status and as such “introduced a new vogue in fighter design.” The I-16 was introduced in the mid-1930s and formed the backbone of the Soviet Air Force at the beginning of World War II. The diminutive fighter, nicknamed “Ishak” or “Ishachok” (“Donkey” or “Burro”) by Soviet pilots, figured prominently in the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Battle of Khalkhin Gol and the Spanish Civil War – where it was called the Rata (“Rat”) by the Nationalists or Mosca (“Fly”) by the Republicans. The Finnish nickname was Siipiorava (“Flying Squirrel”).
