ICM Polikarpov I-16 of Col. Ivan Romanenko HSU in 1/72 Scale

I-16 Type 18 of Col. Ivan Romanenko HSU, CO of the 61st Fighter Brigade, Soviet Navy Baltic Fleet Aviation, September 1941.  Romanenko was credited with 28 individual and 1 shared victory.  Romanenko survived the war and retired as a Lieutenant General.

This is a photo of Colonel Ivan Romanenko HSU in front of his rather uniquely camouflaged I-16. The colors used here are debated, I’m seeing five shades. Comparing the darkest color to the wheels, I went with a dark green rather than black.
