Invest in some harnesses for the cockpit and a little scratch work on the undercarriage legs and you will have a visually stunning model.

Having build one of the previous version, it is a great kit. Other then what Darren mentioned, lining up the exhausts can be a bit tricky.

My goodness, I didn't realize how many versions of the I-16 there were!
