  1. Hello all! This is my latest Italian project which, in turn, conclude my trip through the different camos of that lovely bird. On this one something special was requested as it depicts a plane from the 70° Squadriglia The hungry wasp, when Mussolini was dismissed, and before the armistice was signed. All signs of the fascist government had to be removed, on wings and fuselage and also on the Savoy coat of arms on the tail. The Silhouette tool comes handy in such a case, and was helpful too to do the white bordered 2 and 70. This camo was used by Breda in 43 when the fighting was more over the mainland than North Africa, so the green blotches were more packed and dense! Best regards. fullsizeoutput_2161 by jean Barby, sur Flickr fullsizeoutput_2162 by jean Barby, sur Flickr fullsizeoutput_2163 by jean Barby, sur Flickr fullsizeoutput_2165 by jean Barby, sur Flickr fullsizeoutput_2166 by jean Barby, sur Flickr fullsizeoutput_2167 by jean Barby, sur Flickr fullsizeoutput_2168 by jean Barby, sur Flickr
  2. Merci Jean-Mi! Very kind!
  3. Thanks for pointing out my mistake! I had removed from an Eduard part the small bulge that goes under the right MG hump, but the carpet monster had a day wit it! Cheers!
  4. Thanks a lot for your kind comments.
  5. This plane was on standby as my customer could not decide which livery he wanted. Then he asked for Graf plane while with the short-lived JG50, a special Mosquito hunting unit. So I did use Eduard's decals on the excellent Tamiya 109 et voilà! Best regards.

  6. Many thanks to you all for your comments.
  7. Hello gents. This built was a cool break, using everything from the box but the cooling flaps from Brasin, as they look more realistic. Those Eduard 109 are a real gem and can be turned into a great model without calling the Army! Best regards!

  8. Nice built but your rigging is not complete, sorry to point this. Ciao.
  9. Nice job but you have forgotten the IFF antenna! Cheers.
  10. Hello chums! Long time since no posting, so i am back with a classic. The A6M2 Zero. using the new material available by now, thanks to Nick Millman and some others, very much inspired by the great book "Eagles of the southern skies", I took the old but faithfull Hasegawa kit, riveted, the ultimate SBS resin cockpit, and made a plane of the 4th Chutaï from the famous Tainan Kokutai where great fighter aces were operating: Sasaï, Nishizawa,Sakai. The Ameiro varnish was home made using my own recipe of 60%RLM02, 35% Sail color, 5%white, all Gunze. No decals there as I did everything with the Silhouette tool. thanks for looking, cheers.

    Pretty nice job. The only point I will point up is the fact that the Fiat fighters inside color was Griggio azuro chiaro and not verde anticorrosione. best regards.Jean.
  13. Great stuff! The prop blades should be light blue (RLM 65 is a good match) I am eagerly waiting for this one in 48th!
  14. Many thanks fellows!
