    Hello‚

    I keep working on my ICM Bf 109F-2 but, for the moment, let me to show you my 1/48 Special Hobby Polikarpov I-15 "Chato". This aircraft was flown by Spanish Ace Juan-Lario Sanchez‚ Segunda Escuadrilla de Chatos based at El Balaguer during early 1938.
    Comments are welcome.

    The green has a chalky look and the highlighting is superb. Great work.

    Bonjour Steph,

    Je profite que vous parliez français (je ne pratique pas trop bien l'anglais, malheureusement) pour vous féliciter quand à la réalisation du Polikarpov I-15 Special Hobby.Très beau boulot.

    Comme je n'ai pas réussi à acquérir le kit + deco guerre d'Espagne, j'ai quand même trouver celui avec deco russe.
    J'aimerais pouvoir le monter dans la version guerre Espagne, pourriez-vous me dire dans quelle marque existe des decals ou masques pour cette version.

    Si vous avez aussi sur le site, la suite de votre montage pourriez-vous aussi me donner le lien?

    D'avance je vous en remercie.

    Bien à vous,

    François

    Hello François,

    First, thank you for your nice comment.
    I don' t know if decal sheets or masks exist for Spanish version (maybe Begemot or Authentics decals but not sure?). But, I made my own decals and I have the original decal sheet from the box. Tell me what scheme do you want and I'll send you.
    Here are the different options
    Polikarpow I-15 Chato Special Hobby 48015
    There is no "step by step" on the forum, but, let me your email by private message and I can send you some pictures of my the assembly steps.

    Tout d'abord, merci pour votre gentil commentaire.
    Je ne sais pas s'il exsite des decals ou des masks pour la version espagnole (peut-être chez Begemot ou Authentics décalcs mais pas sûr?). Mais, j'ai fait mes propres décalcomanies et j'ai encore la planche originale du kit. Dites-moi quelle déco vous voulez et je vous l'enverrai par la poste.
    Voici les différentes options

    Il n'y a pas de "pas à pas" sur le forum, mais, laissez-moi votre email et je peux vous envoyer quelques photos de mes étapes de montage.

    Thank you all for your nice comment too :)
    Stéph
