1/72 Polikarpov I-15 Chato, Spanish Republic, Aviation Usk   

A new post of member content, words and pictures by Glenn Wilson.

When the Soviets delivered a ship load of this fighter the balance of air superiority shifted to the Republic. The Spanish also built them locally so they formed the bulk of the early – mid-war Republican fighter force.

I bought the Aviation Usk kit because it was available; it gives problems in the area where the wings meet the fuselage. Although not a particularly bad kit (after all, I was able to build it) it is no longer available and better kit are now available.
