    Product Description
    Water-slide Decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softener is also recommended at this stage. After applying softener, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
    I-16 type 18 belonged to the defense of Murmansk in 1941 and Lieutenant L.Surzenko flew with him. It was colour by a standard Soviet camouflage beginning of the 1940s - upper green, lower light blue. The front part of the engine cover and propeller cover were green and end the arc of the vertical tail was red, the front label trim was silver. Interesting was another shade of green on the part of the transition of the panel between the hull of the vertical tail, which probably occurred during the repair. Soviet Sovereign characters with black edging are located on both sides of the wing and on the hull side. There is a silver "3a CCCP!" in Cyrillic, on silver rudder number 13. In some publications, Lieutenant Surzenko's aircraft is mistakenly referred to as I-16 type 24, and the colour does not match reality. Mostly is drawn with a black engine cover, an improperly placed inscription, and the coat-of-arms features without trimming. Use the Humbrol HT1 Topside green, Humbrol HT2 Underside blue and HT5 Marker red.
