    For I-16 planes made before the war ... A-14 Stalnol (steel, in fact dark grey) - FS (2)6187, during the period of 1940-41 many I-16s had cockpits painted with AII Gałuboj (light blue) colour - FS (1,2 or 3 depending on when the dope was applied , the older the more matt) 5466. Many cockpits were painted with primers only - Wood Aerolak FS (2)6320 - 6176. Metal parts - primer ALG-5 FS (3)4670. The indicator panel - black.

    If you want to make the l-16 Type 29 - AII Gałuboj or Wood Aerolak. If the type 10 - A-14 Stalnol for main parts in the cockpit

    Please check the link with a few pictures for the I-16 type 24 model build.

    Here you are two pics that show my ways of making these cockpit panels..The two first ways I use for small models. In the second pic you can see an effect of the third way I use for bigger models..The difference is that for the panel I used a kind of a mask made of a piece of black plastic thin sheet obtained from a 3.5" MF 2HD diskette.It was used instead of the painting black showed for the second way. All indicators were printed on a clear foil as a negative and glued to a white background made of a piece of a phone card.
