Hi Bernard,
I have not particular suggestions for the painting of these models. For the first one, you have some I-16s already built, you can use the same paints for a consistent result.
Have you any photo of these planes?

Hi Massimo,
There are numerous pictures of I-15 in Spain, but I have not found one labelled for sure "1936". Compared to the I-16 known as belonging to the  first batch, I suppose that they were not marked CCxx on the fuselage and had only a bort number lower than 31 on the rudder. For the paint, as you suggest I will use the pre-37 green and light blue I used on the I-16 type 5, different from AII Z and G.
For the Falco plane , it was described by his pilot  and there are numerous profiles. No problem for the markings. The question is the underside of Spain made I-15. AII g, light grey, aluminium.  Xan suggest aluminium.

Hi Bernard,
I would guess that a typical Spanish color for undersufaces would be light blue, but I don't really know. What are the sources of Xan?
On photos, light blue and aluminum should be distinguishable.

I don't know the sources of Xan. Here on SWP he discussed in several posts of 1938 planes painted AII aluminium and /or Ae9.  He think probably that spanish planes followed the same rules as VVS and changed from blue to aluminium in 1938. Falco's plane is from 1938.

Hi,
personaly I don't think that Spanish had painted any plane undersurface in a color different from blue, unless they had received them already painted. This is only my personal guess.

Hi Massimo,
I have not find photos to support aluminium. So I will stay on blue as the profiles and models published.

Hi Massimo,
here is a post on SWP where Xan  said that the I-15 had silver undersides:
KL and you discussed the green shade, but not the silver

Hi Bernard,
I see, the interview looks convincing on this point. That discussion was interesting, I don't know better references on this topic.
Regards
Massimo
