  1. Those new year/new project/new cutting-mat feels! Special Hobby's Fiat G50. Just a cool looking plane, and I'm going to finish it as the aircraft depicted in the box art, so it should be a lovely challenging paint session. The contents of the box are miles ahead of SH's Heinkell He100 (Which I've just finished), being crisp and well detailed. This kit comprises plastic, resin and photo etched parts, all quite well detailed, albeit all requiring some cleaning up to some degree. I'll be using MRP paints for as much as I can, hopefully I've deciphered STORMO!'s colour guide accurately! This is the scheme I'll be having a crack at. Should be fun. Cue the Fiat A74 radial engine noises! Denzil.
  2. This one has moved back to the bench almost 2 years to the day since beginning! So here's where we kick off. The cockpit can't be fitted after the fuselage half are closed (which is my normal preference), so everything (except the seat harness, is being installed Let's see if I can get this across the line this time! Denzil
  3. Well, here it is, back again for the third time. In between wresting the Infinity Helldiver, little bits of work have been done to get this thing across the line. Previous attempts can be found here Can't rush these things... Anyway, the G50 is too cool looking a plane to let go to waste, and besides, THIS paint scheme is screaming to be replicated! Where I last left, the fuselage was together and work has begun on straightening the elevator hinge lines. Here's a quick summary: Easy fix, right? File down the leading edge of the horizontal stabilizers to pivot them forwards, to make a straight trailing edge. Derp. This made a large gap between the elevators and the fairings. Nothing a bit of shimming and sanding can't fix In this pic you can also see the soft corners of the fairings where they meet the elevators. I made a razor saw cut down the middle of the fairings, superglued in some parts from a photo etched fret and filed them to a fine point. Also installed were representations of the control surface hinges. This was all sanded and trimmed to size and primed, and now the tail end is done. Test fitting parts Primer coats to see where surface details need re scribing. And that brings us to now. Some more surface detail work is needed, but she IS getting close to paint Denzil
  4. Special Hobby Fiat in finnish markings. This paintwork required some work on tail. Unfortunately higher vertical fin isn't supplied in the box so i needed to scratch it. I made some corrections and adjustments to match finnish planes: - pilot seat is moved backwards - guns have metal tubes made from syringe needle - shelf between IP top and bottom is added I used these additions: - Yahu IP - Techmod hakaristi decals - Montex masks (plane number) Surface is riveted and wheels are weighted. I can really recommend this kit to everyone who likes Italian planes - it's simple, and construction goes without any big problems. Photos from the bench:
