The video showing one of these flying has a beautiful engine sound that really appeals.

I like this kit, and might try to be extra good(or bad, as in Mae West's famous, "when I'm good I'm good, but when I'm bad, I'm very good") for Mrs. Claus for next Xmas.

However, my question is, the crew included in the kit are wonderful, so I'm wondering if they could possibly be offered separately as a kit all their own for those of us who would like this? I'm pretty sure that other types in 1/32 might like crew as well, although I have been known to be wrong on a few occasions(ask my wife, because she's always right, no matter what)

Here's some impressive "new" footage of I-16s. Computer animation is getting better.
