Eduard offers several variants of the I-16 in 1/48 scale. This kit was the I-16 Type 10 Over Spain Dual Combo which came with a small photo etch fret.
There was very little not to like about this kit. Eduard kits have gotten better and better over the years and this kit is no exception. The level of detail, molding and value-added extras they offer set them far ahead of most of the bigger model companies in my mind.
I built the kit out of the box, but to be honest I can’t see where aftermarket bits would have improved the kit. This kit came with a small photo etch fret, which I used just because it was there. I will probably leave it off the second kit that came with this combo though, except for maybe the seat belts. Very little can be seen in the cramped cockpit (even after opening the side door) and the wheel covers are nice, but not really that much nicer than the plastic kit parts.
