Helo, A freind of mine is building an I-16 type 29.
Eduard proposes this decoration:



with this text:

It is believed this “Red Nine” served with 16.IAP at Moscow in the tough days of fall, 1941, when the German offensive on Moscow
was revved-up. The aircraft wears the standard early war (1941-1943) camouflage pattern with dark green/black upper surfaces and
light blue lower surfaces. The spinner, as well as the tail tip, was painted red, and the inscription (“Death to Invaders!”) was most
probably yellow. No significant weathering is seen on this aircraft. The aircraft has the early type of front cowling, with the single
squared bottom right-side oil cooler air intake.

I never see pics of this plane; does anyone have something about it ?

Thanks

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Hi Xan,

I had the same questions when building mine, see my post at http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=1386.0

Let me pick up the quote from KL:
Quote
True, nice model.  Too bad the real plane did not exist...   Except in Pilavskii's imagination...
Eduard's I-16 Type 29 relayed heavily on Pilawskii - 3 out of 4 decal options are Pilawskii's interpretations (fantasies)
Happy modeling Wink

Regards,
