I haven't got any blue-prints, but what I've got is 'Aircraft Profile, Polikarpov I-16' Published 1982, by Profile Books Limited, Windsor, Berkshire England.

It's a twelve page booklet, lot's of text and some photo's. I could scan it for ya, but you'd have to be truly interested then!
Here's the cover:
And a pic page:
Scanning can be done in a higher resolution... so you can read the texts...

Just reply that you want them 12 pages, and I'll start scanning...

Here ya go. All 12 Pages.
I had to limit the size, as the Uploadit.org site won't allow larger than 200Kbytes...
But, it's still readable I guess.
Some of 'm are not lined up 100% but...
Have Fun!

Hehe, that lil' - cute - chubby - but loveable plane... Wonder what was the designer thinking when he started on the drawing board http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It's one cool, fat little bugger. When my friend, Gottfried Dulias transferred from the Western to the Eastern front, he regularly encountered I-16's in his Bf-109G-14/AS. He shot down 3 of them. (he got 2 spits on the Western Front) However, what would have been his 4th kill got him in the end. He hit the I-16 with his MK-108 cannon and it was leaking fuel, badly. He followed it across the lines trying to get its crash in his gun camera, but ground fire hit his plane and he was forced to ditch. He was captured one day later.

The I-16 is a noble fighter, best pictured, I think, by SeafireLIV in this cartoon:

"Ah, the I16 above. It gets bossed and booted and bullied about- yet still it comes back smiling. A wonderful character of an aircraft. I love this little plane. The first pic to get a reaction which was not expected, and , made me think about doing more"

Small bump...
The Fool's also got 'Aircraft Profile' booklets for:
- Henschel Hs 129
- .rumman F3F
- .urtiss SB2C-1 Helldiver
- Nakajima Ki-84
- Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien...

Who can make the Fool scan and upload all these pages?
And, if you can make him scan, which one first?
