Hi everyone!

I just finished this plane last night! It's a Hasagawa Polikarpov I16 Type 18. I am going to use it to straiff Iggys men until they are bloody red smears on the battlefield! :mrgreen: I hear that he's claiming too many victories that never really happened. ... oh, hi Iggy!

Image
This plane is in 1/72nd scale and I am using it in the Rapid Fire games that we play at my hobby store, Monster Hobbies.

Image
Although the paint scheme is not entirely historically accurate, (I combined some era correct Russian paint schemes from other Soviet fighters) it should still hold it's own in a dogfight.

Image
Since there was no pilot in the airplane, I modified one from an old ESCI tank kit.

Image
I also used my hobby saw to cut the "Down Position" landing gear appart and re-glue it in an "Up Position". I also mounted it on a clear Games Workshop base, although I think I will change this in the future because the plane doesn't fly high enough!

Image
A night flight?

Image
And one up the nose!

Hope you liked them!

That! Seriously love it. Way before I even knew this hobby existed, I was painting model planes, so it hits a soft spot.

These are some soilders I found in a bag at home. I had these since I was young, but because I only have 13 of them, I have decided to sell them at my store. I just wanted to paint up some of them because the figures were so nice! Whoever buys them gets 6 pro painted guys!
