Hi,

Hi Misos,
this drawing is interesting.  My impression is that the spinner should be wider. On the photo, I see a linear protrusion over the nose too.
I wonder if there is some way to scratchbuild this prototype by recycling parts of obsolete kits.

Hi Massimo,
I have found this photo on the net:

According to what I read this plane was designed with the closed cockpit, not with open one.

Hi Misos, this is good. It seems that the canopy had to be removed manually, as on I-200, 211 and on Yak-/4. I hope it was jettisonable from inside.

Beautiful profile, Michal (it's for my upcoming book 'Soviet Fighters of the Second World War')! Massimo, Omega do a rather nice resin kit of the I-28. They also do the Pashinin I-21, which I also have, and is also a nice all-resin kit.

Regards,

Jason

Hi Jason, I have an I-30 of that firm. Looks very nice, apart for the canopy that was vacuformed badly and has an irregular surface of the windscreen. I could use it as a base for a new mould, or try to adapt another canopy.
