It's a conversion of the ICM I-16 type 24 kit.

The major changes are: spinner, airscrew, air intake, oil cooler outlet.

I have used drawings by M. Maslov as reference material.

The wheel covers are photo-etched parts from ACE, and I have made a vacuformed windshield.

The Decals are from PrintScale, but the tactical number with digits of different sizes as offered by PrintScale is not correct. So, I have made a normal tactical number "51".

It is a subject for debate if this plane carried stars on upper surfaces. My compromise is: overpainted stars.
