Eduard I-16 Type 24
« on: September 07, 2014, 04:40:01 AM »
Here's another sweet little Eduard jewel that was on great discount! I had no strength to resist another I-16..... :-jump

Just a few minutes and the wing was assembed and fuselage trial fitted. The first Eduard I-16 I built didn't fit perfectly due to a slightly warped fuselage half. This one is perfect and all slides together beautifully:

Nice kit, indeed, but I've changed the title of this thread to reflect some change in my plan.

It turns out that the kit, as packaged by Eduard, is really more of a Type 24 than the 18. I base this on the radio compartment door and right side cockpit entry hatch. These were not (usually, at any rate) found on the Type 18 according to the research I've been doing.

Changing to a 24 also gives me some more flexibility in markings choices, and I intend to revamp the whole project to reflect this change.

Lest everyone think I no longer spend any time at my bench, here is some progress on the little I-16. Nothing special here, just a great fitting kit..... One thing I did do is replace the Eduard engine. This isn't very detailed at all, nor is it really that visible in the close-fitting cowl. However, I didn't want to build a set of shutters for this one so I took an old Monogram B-17G engine and modified it slightly.

Here is the completed I-16. Again, this Eduard kit is such a pleasure to build. Just a little filler on a few seams and the replacement engine, otherwise it is right from the container. The national insignia are from the Eduard sheet, the numerals I made myself:

I'll simply add this next I-16 to the existing thread since it is exactly the same kit with different boxing. Again this is the excellent Eduard Weekend Edition that has been in my storage for some time:

No sense in boring everyone with the buildup--it went together beautifully and is almost ready for primer:
