    Well friends!

    This is my last model built on the scale 1/100. The Polikarpov I-16 Type 10 in the colors of the Republican Air Force during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). This model published by Aeroteca Barcelona was originally on the scale 1/48 put the scan and to reduce my favorite scale (1/100). It is a simple model but with some errors of fitting, and the editor of this characteristic lack of undercarriage that had to do a scratchbuilding.

    An interesting comparison with the English Vickers Jockey prototype of the fighter aircraft developed at the same time that the I-16, the appearance of the Jockey archaic in comparison to I-16 is obvious ...

    Great work.
