I recently picked up several 15mm resin airplane models from Armaments in Miniatures (AIM). Originally I intended to assemble and paint them, and then create a new posting on the WWII Aviation Product Reviews board. Somehow, I ended up here (flattered I am).

From the kits I picked up, I decided that I would assemble and paint three Polikarpov I-16s for the Workbench project. These are quality resin kits, and come with several parts.
