The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Polikarpov I-16 without paint


Recommended Posts

I'm really enjoying this proliferation of aircraft laid bare.  

I've just ordered some of Uschi's Super Fine Veneer Plywood which might suit this kind of build too.

Dude, you are a hero!

 

Also...oh man...diagonal? That won't be a massive pain or anything...(but it should look awesome if I can pull it off)

 

....piece of piss! ;) Uschi decal? Soft pencil demarcation and strips made up from a combination of Knotless rich and pale decal.

Doogs,

Bare in mind: if you pull it off....     you're pulling it too hard!

Today my Vector Resin full engine and engine bay/cowling arrived.

Just beautiful chuncks of lovely resin...

I already had a Vector engine for this kit, but that is useless unless:

- you're content with having a resin engine of 20+ euro's only to be seen through the small cowling louvres,

- or you're willing to scratch the entire mounting frame and cowling panels. 

 

The wood grain decals are on their way. James taught me a great trick. Drop them in Cava instead of water. I brings out a richness. He discovered this by accident I have to add.

 

Cheers!

Jeroen

Hang on !???  Are you allowed to start this yet??? What about the Ninak ??

Hi Grant,

the misses said it was alright. As long as I clean up after me :)

I did some rigorous rigging on the Ninak today, but after one glass of wine I switch to the more... well... crude chopping on the I-16.

 

This is the page I'm using as a reference by the way. Bookmarked it years ago for a day like this...

OH!!! PLEASE tell me you're doing skis as well - in which case  you're forgiven for switching builds.

I absolutely love the one that's shown on that site, it's gorgeous - I wonder whether the skis were made of wood???

 

@ Johann: Like your Russian User banner, It's really cool?

Skis were made of wood, the bottom is finished with aluminum
 
I hope that I have not violated by placing his version banner?

Not at all... Most of the banners on LSM have been made by Jeroen

Hi Johann,

 

Thank you so much for this info! 

All small pieces of info are welcome, but you're bringing it by the truckloads!

And, on top of that, I found a f*ckbuddy when trying to download the pdf :)

 

Love your signature banner too. 

 

Cheers,

Jeroen

Hi Johann,

Just finished downloading both books. Really cool and much appreciated.

I just got a pop up window with a naked lady but I'm not complaining :)

 

Thanks again. Especially the drawings in the first book are welcome. They show me how the wood panels turn around the fuselage.

Ah the stage has been set, let the Polikarpov commenceth....

 

Cees

Hi Cees,

Set... and taking shape.

The nose has been cut off. The gun fairings have been cut out. And the forward lower wing fairing has been removed with brute force.

Resin sidewalls in place. Doors cut out (these will feature PE open doors).

 

In reality the cowling slitted over the forward fuselage and that feature is nicely replicated in resin. Very thin.

 

And yes... this baby will have skids.
