I was tempted to get this cheap from the discount hobby suppliers before the eBay scalpers went to work, but I already had one, and it's enough. Alas, Eduard made some dumb mistakes on the cockpit which really broght this model down. I don't mind doing the fixing once, but x3 is not to my taste. Rest of the model is pretty good. Should have been definitive. Pity.

DAMN, the title "well off" made me think this was a real Rata on sale! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

There are some in New Zealand and Russia if you have a couple hundred thousand dollars to spare!

Mosca

If you like the I 16, it is the Mosca

If it is your adversary, it is a Rata

Ah, but therein exactly lies the problem because no-one recognizes the positive nickname! Hell, I just talked to a flightmate the other day - and the geezer has flown the Mosca a lot - and he was like WTF; the guy had never even heard the name http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

So it's a bit problematic isn't it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I believe some of these (http://www.nzfpm.co.nz/article.asp?id=aircraft) might be up for sale, or were previously at any rate. The price is/was around 350000NZ$ per plane IIRC.

Believe me, if I had the money I'd f*n buy one today. And I ain't joking either. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I hear ya. I'd buy one if I had the ready and stick it in my living room and sit in the cockpit. By the way, to true I-16 cognoscenti, BBB462cid, it's neither of those debased foreign names, but the Russian Ishak (mule). To me, it's the I-16. The Chaika and Ishak are my favorite mounts. Hot late war stuff is for nancies.
