This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Special Hobby models are limited run kits which consist of plastic, resin and metal parts. For intermediate to advanced modelers only, they will require extra work to build successfully.
The Polikarpov I-16 was the backbone of the Red Army Air Force for a very long period of time, since the mid 1930's until the second half of WW2. Improved versions of this fighter aircraft were gradually put into service. The I-16 Type 24 was one of the latest versions.
Four frames of plastic parts plus an injected windscreen are accompanied with a PE fret and most importantly with a huge set of resin parts. These last mentioned allow you to build the model with its engine replica, open fuselage guns and deployed control surfaces. The decal sheet brings you two machines, the one with "Za Stalina - For Stalin" inscription on its fuselage was flown by an ace and the best Soviet fighter pilot at the time, B.F. Safonov, while the other machine, adorned with "Za SSSR - For the USSR" inscription was piloted by S.Surjenko.
