Hi, good photos indeed. Is there any photo of the plane 420 of the profile?

That will be nice when finished, OM! I built a SCW I-16 from the ancient Revell kit many years ago. It's probably in storage now. I may have to do one of my several ICM kits now as a SCW example.

Regards,

Jason

Thank you! I might have to get this. It would make an interesting little diorama.

Best Regards,

Jason

Hi,
I've received a photo of a SB exhibit of some Finnish musum forom Tapani. Another image of the same piece was lying in my HD.

Thank you, Gentlemen. It's good to see you. I have occasionally seen this project  mentioned elsewhere when a type 10 in 1/72 comes up. That's part of why I finally decided to finish it.

Here is how things stand now:







Since the Spanish re-paint got me out of a jam on the under surface, I redid the uppers as well, in a more olive green (an old Pollyscale remnant I believe was 'French Khaki'). Once decals were on, a good pray of Tamiya matte.

Demarcations were touched up in the process.

Exhausts have been put in, just little bits of 0.75mm round. There's some slips of their color here and there need touching up.

I have two A-Model I-16 decal sheets, and they are a treat. One subject is a CM-125, and with four of these I could piece together the CM-225 serial. These provided the rudder striping as well. Because the A-Model kit is huskier over-all, I expected these to be a bit over-size for an ICM's rudder, but they were undersized, and I had to bolster the purple field with a piece of another rudder decal. The cadmium red tube acrylic used for the markings seems a fortuitous match for the decal red.

I have the undercarriage bits painted. Once that touchings up are done, more Tamiya matte spray and then it will time for propeller and windscreen.

   I seem to understand that other SB interiors can be found or left unpainted, or covered with a transparent varnish, but I would like to be assured that I understood well.

First aircraft of the 1936 production (it has a nameplate) has an exterior paint, presumably silver. There are no signs of any paint inside, including primer.
The second aircraft (three-bladed propeller) has a light-gray exterior paint and inside it is completely painted with A14 steel-gray.
The third aircraft (two-bladed propeller) is also light-gray on the outside, but inside the skin is covered with transparent varnish. The frame and all internal elements are not painted (exept steel parts).

Dmitry,
   Thank you for the beautiful photos and the new information.
   Mr. Maslov book is of 16 years ago, and research is always evolving, I would say that at this point we have these facts:
- From archeological evidence, we have a SB produced in 1936, that was primed with zinc chromate and painted with silver aluminum paint.
- From archeological evidence we have a Russian metal bomber that was originally painted with light gray paint, that was subsequently overpainted with silver aluminum paint.
- From documents, we have that the first ANT-40 prototypes were not painted.
- At the moment we lack archeological evidence or documents proving that serial SB were not painted.
   I hope to have summarized the facts correctly.
   I understand that there are a few samples of light gray painted planes with the interior in steel gray.
   I seem to understand that other SB interiors can be found or left unpainted, or covered with a transparent varnish, but I would like to be assured that I understood well.
   I would be very curious to know a date for the crash of each plane, but I suppose that I am pretending too much.
   To have an idea of how it is possible to make an excellent restoration of an historical plane, you can Google "Restaurer-les-avions-de-musee" to see the wonderful Yak-3 of Le Bourget, that recently has been repainted on the left side, while the right side is showing the various paints and insignia used during its career.

Daniele
