Hi Bernard,
you have made models of high interest.
Is the emblem on the tail of the UTI-3 made by a printed decal? What is written on it?
About the plane TK, is the cowling longer than usual I-16 Type 5?
Regards

Hi Massimo,
This acronym stands for UTI-3, Ути - 3 in printed cyrillic , and    in italic cursive   . The T turns into M. I was able to reproduce it on hand made decal. I was unable to understand the 3 signs on the star, so I reproduced them as I saw.
The cowlings of both planes are NACA and this changes the aspect of the planes . For the I-16 V, I  used  the drawing of Maslov and the cowling has the same length than the ICM, 15 mm  For  the UTI-3, I used  the side picture  and the cowling is longer, 17mm.

Regards
Bernard

Hi Bernard,
thank you for the answer.  It's difficult to imagine what is written inside the star.
About the hinge line between fin and rudder of the UTI-3, I think that it should be covered by a two-piece strip of thin sheet as on TsKB-12 and Type 4. You could add it with a stripe of paper.
Regards
Massimo
