  1. Fiat CR.42 LW (32021) 1:32 ICM The Fiat CR.42 Falco (Falcon) was developed in the late 1930s at a time when the more modern monoplane fighters were starting to outstrip bi-planes in performance but it was felt they still had a place. The CR.42 was a development of the CR.32 which were used with success in the Spanish Civil War. The new aircraft would feature a supercharged radial engine and be of simple clean strong construction offering good manoeuvrability. The CR.42 was considered to be the best bi-plane available at the start of WWII although that
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Fly Models Fiat G.50bis, built from the box. This is a multi-media kit consisting of plastic and resin parts. I painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, mixed to match the Italian AF colors. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. A full build review will appear in an upcoming edition of Scale Aviation Modeller International. Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna! Roman

  4. Today, I quoted the following messages in the AvantGarde Model Kits (AMK) facebook page in the last topic about the Fouga Magister. Source: https://www.facebook.com/AMKHOBBY Conclusion: AMK has - most probably in 1/48th scale - a Fiat G-91 project in progress. As I can't imagine AMK only producing the G-91T or two seats version from the Gina... Long life to this project. V.P.
  5. With this plane, I completed the planned series of Italian hunting planes. The model is old, but I liked to work. The images are a bit of a bad quality, because, whatever I do, the pictures are dark. So much of me. Enjoy.
  6. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my 1/72 Sword Fiat G.55 of 2. Gruppo, 1. Squadriglia, flown by Ten. Drago at Cascina Vaga airfield, in May 1944. Built for the "Italian design special display" at the upcoming IPMS GoModelling show (March 9-10, 2019). I added photo-etch seatbelts from MPM and resin upgrades from AP Modely. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, representing the so-called "experimental splinter scheme". All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. The round squadron batch on the nose has wrong color, it is too light. It should actuall
  7. I have been tortured for some time now that even though we have many Air Forces represented by our aircraft builds in this GB, we don't have any from the Regia Aeronautica - no aircraft collection is complete without those distinctive fascios on that gorgeous 3-colour honeycombe camouflage! I think that there is time to fit in this simple build - wheels up of course. This particular type of Fiat G.50 flew in the Battle of Britain, I believe. Also has a pretty extensive kit Check List included - just how many of these has this GB covered???
  8. I'd like to introduce to you the model I completed this morning. It is a model of the FIAT G.50 BIS plane that was part of the Yugoslav Air Force during the Second World War. The pictures are here and enjoy.

  10. Hello! This is my second model car and once again I'm shooting for a post apocalyptic theme. I picked the Fiat Topolino because, well, it's super cute guys and it comes with a dog! The other selling point for me was the open roof, because I'm gonna shove a machine gun in there. I'm trying to go in a bit more prepared, so I treated myself to a copy of the 'Underhaulin' ebook from the Model Junkyard website (here: http://shop.modeljunkyard.com/product/underhaulin-junk-model-car-ebook/) for some guidance on doing more realistic weathering. I also got some much needed tools
  11. I started this kit several years ago and unfortunately it found it's way to the shelf of doom. However, I dusted it of for just such a group build over on LSP as this is an aircraft far too nice looking to let sit half built...and it was an expensive model!! The kit has excellent detail straight out of the box, fit is ok, probably one of PCM's better, but it still requires a little elbow grease to get everything fitted nicely. The decal sheet is really nice, although I didn't use any of them, rather I used my compass cutter and some red stars from the spares box for the Syrian insignia. Overal
  12. It was already evoked in another (Blenheim) topic but I open a dedicated one. Hannants has just reissued the Classic Airframe CR.42 1/48th kit - ref. CF4157 Source: http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/CF4157 Box art V.P.
  13. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is Sword's new 1/72 Fiat G.55, a kit presented at ModelBrno Show in June. I bought two boxes (each box containing two model kits) plus an aftermarket bag, containing resin seat, air intake, wheels and a vacu canopy. There's seven rather colorful marking options included. The model fits reasonably, but has shallow and washed-out details and soft panel lines in some areas. I found the assembly of the multi-part landing gear most challenging. I found an original photograph of this machine in "Aviazione Nazionale Repubblicana Italian Ai
  14. After a long battle Fiat is finished. Markings are my own work + old masks and decals from other models. Work in progress topic: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69719&hl= My Spanish collection - Cricket, Rata and Stuka. All beautiful in their own way :
  15. Finished this 1/72 Airfix Fiat G.50 today. Not sure what year my kit was from, I used a red stripe header bag release. It's entirely box stock with the exception of rescribing entirely with recessed panel lines and utilizing Sky Models aftermarket decals. I used a combination of Life Color, Italeri and Tamiya acrylics for paint. Also an artists oil panel line wash. It's a simple kit that was pretty cleanly molded and didn't require a great deal of fettling or filler to get ready for paint. Can't speak to accuracy, but I think it looks the part pretty well.
  16. I just got the urge to start on my Italeri 1/48 Fiat G.91 R1/3/4 "Gina" Kit 2645, and was wondering which aftermarket MB Mk.4 ejection seat would be correct for it. There are a number of different "variants" of the seat listed on Hannants, but none state that they are for the "Gina" I am thinking about doing the Portuguese R-4 variant, if that makes a difference in seat types. I was thinking about a cockpit set, but the Neomega and Small World Accessories cockpit seta are designed for the Heller & Ocidental R├ęplicas kits.. Larry
  17. Fiat CR.42 Falco. One of only four survivors Regia Aeronautica aircraft MM5701 is on display at the RAF Museum in Hendon, pics mine. This aircraft was captured on 11 November 1940 when it suffered an overheated engine and was forced to land on the beach at Orfordness, Suffolk. During the summer of 1941, it was flown by the Air Fighting Development Unit in mock combat. At the end of 1943 all testing was complete and the aircraft was marked for preservation.
  18. North American/Fiat QF-91C In 1961 the US DoD authorised the loan of two Luftwaffe Fiat G.91s for trials by the US Army. These were flown alongside Douglas A4D-2 Skyhawks and a Northrop N-156 (F-5 prototype). One was an Italian built G.91R-1, c/n 0052 that served with the Luftwaffe (BD+102) whilst the other was a German built G.91R-3 (c/n 0065) Luftwaffe EC+105. Although all three types were highly regarded none were deemed suitable for the role of Close Air Support or Forward Air Controller. Rumours abound that this decision was based on political grounds as the US Army could not be seen to
  19. I have a Heller Magister taking up shelf space, however I have a big reluctance to build it OOB because it's hardly inspirational as such... Option 1: Patrouille De France 1978, could there be a more colourful scheme? Or a more common combination...(tied perhaps with a Red Arrow Hawk) Option 2: All silver West Germany WS50 19966. Could this be the most boring Heller scheme? So without buying an AM decal sheet what could I come up with? 1. Put it back on the shelf 2. Build but don't paint/decal 3. Spend more money on decals, and blowing apart the idea of cheap + cheerful. 4. Wiff... Whi
  20. The Corpo Aereo Italiano - the Regia Aeronautica's expeditionary force sent to assist the German Luftwaffe in bringing Great Britain to terms - probably owed its origins to two factors, the first being RAF air raids on Italian cities in June and September 1940 which stung Mussolini's sensitive pride and the second being the potential for Italy to make gains in the Mediterranean and North Africa at the expense of the British Empire once Britain had been forced to a negotiated surrender. Sadly for Mussolini and fortunately for the British, it didn't quite pan out that way. The CAI was beset wit

  23. A little background: The Gran Chaco War (or sometimes just "Chaco War") was a war fought between Bolivia and Paraguay over a region of scrubland, swamp, and semi-desert called the Gran Chaco. The land was of little use or interest until oil was discovered near it, in the foothills of the Andes. This led Bolivia to believe that oil was also in the Gran Chaco and they asserted their claim to this land, which had belonged to the department of Bolivia when most of South America was owned by Spain. The region had, however, long been inhabited and used by the Paraguayans, who had de facto, if not ac
