LIMITED PRODUCTION because I don’t like to pull canopies and I feel I should not sell this short kit without a canopy.  This short kit is cut from LIGHT balsa (6#-7#).

Soviet WWII fighter. Also flown in Spanish Civil War. One of the first with cantilever wings and retractable landing gear. Model Eligible for Peanut, WWII, or WWII Peanut. Model is a little short-coupled, but can fly.

My Polikarpov I-16 “Rata” WITH vacu-formed Canopy and Spinner AND a 3D-printed Spinner (you can choose which spinner you want to use). Laser-cut parts in LIGHT 1/16″ balsa sheet.
