Amazing scratchbuild article of a 1/72 Polikarpov R-5:

The translation is not very good, but the photos are truly impressive!

Hi John,
and here are some photos of the cockpit of a Kor-1 of the same author. He made a beautiful He-70 too.

From this thread on Scalemodels.ru, it appears that maybe the R-5 parts in the Dishmodels article might somehow become masters for new 1/72 kits from either South Front or ICM - the online translation is hard to understand:

Wow - I hope so! A series of kits of the R-5 family would sure keep my Visa card busy! Wink

These authors name is Valentin Muchichko. He is very famous in Russia and Ukraine, the author models. In his master models are made to suit the I-1,TB-3, SB, Ki-27 ICM.

Hmmm - so he does a lot of work for ICM, does he? Very interesting! Maybe he might be working on a 1/72 I-153 for them some time soon! Wink

And a La-9/11? Don't forget this beautiful plane. I hope that more decent kits will be released.

John, you and your Chaika!  I do have to agree with you on that one, though.  And whilst we have someone working on an accurate I-153 in 1/72nd scale, how about someone doing one in 1/32nd scale!  Instead of another Bf-109, say (what are there, 100 different kits of the Bf-109 in 1/32nd scale now?).

Regards,

Jason

I think that anymore. ICM has moved to technology 3D modeling master models. Rejecting all of the handcrafted items.

Hi Musa! That is interesting, and I don't know if it is good news or bad news. It appears that the older handcrafted masters were truly great works of craftsmanship, judging by the finely-detailed kits which resulted - I-16, I-15, Su-2. Perhaps the new method will allow ICM to produce their molds more quickly and possibly issue new kits more often. I hope they don't forget about 1/72 scale!

Hi John! Unfortunately the tendency towards transition to the scale of 1:48 and foreign aircraft types.
