  1. Hi, Next from my Caproni shelf - Caproni Ca 311. Model made from Italeri kit, some interior details added. decals from drawer - markings are from 128 Squadriglia, 61 Gruppo Osservazione Aerea, Corpo di Spedizione Italiano in Russia, Zaporozhe, Ukraine, Nov. 1941. Comments welcome cheers... Jerzy-Wojtek
  2. Hi Mates, I started to assemble this IMAM Ro.37 bis Special Hobby kit: The kit is composed by six sprues of grey styrene and one of clear canopy parts, the styrene items are accompanied by resin and photo-etched details. The decal sheet offers markings for four eye-catching schemes which portrays machines in service almost throughout the world. The IMAM Ro.37 was a reconnaissance and observation biplanes and I'd like to do the airplane with the camouflage and markings of the Aviazione Cobelligerante Italiana (Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force), this being one o
  3. I fancy having a go at this with an Italian beauty! I will be building the SMER 1/48 Macchi MC200 Saetta. There are two finishing options provided on the decal sheet. One is a machine in a green and sand "mottle" with grey undersides, the other in green uppersurface with grey underneath, captioned as "Greece 1942". I shall be following many (if not all) of the entries for this GB. Looking forward to Saturday when it'll be "Tally Ho, chaps/Horrido/Banzai/insert appropriate fighter jock slang here"!
  4. Hi All! ZVEZDA (ex-Dragon) MIG in 1/72 My psychiatrist took a drink and left me alone. So I was able to do what I want for a while. Here is the result. Painted Gunze. Enjoy watching!
  5. Hi all, here's a set of RFI shots for the recently completed Re.2005. I'm sort of pleased with it, in spite of the several slips and trips along the way. It has at least been a learning experience, so hopefully I shall avoid repeating some mistakes in future builds. I deliberately held off going overboard with weathering this particular model, as I was concerned that the dark green top colour would have needed an awful lot doing to it in order to be noticeable. From what I have read these aircraft really came into the war too late to make much of a difference, so the am
  6. Hello! Here is my Fairy Kikaku 1:144 scale resin kit of the Breda Ba.65 A80 which I completed in 2017. It represents 159-17 of 12º Gruppo, 159ª Squadriglia, Regia Aeronautica, North Africa, 1940-41. It was quite a challange turning the lumps of resin into something resembling the Breda. The real make-or-break part of this kit was turning the ceiling fan that came in the bag into a propeller and one of my greatest satisfactions of this build. A couple of details were scratchbuilt from sprue. The kit was fully painted and varnished by brush. I managed to replace most of the awful
  7. Bf 109 G6/R6 - Regia Aeronautica - July 1943 - 364a Squadriglia, 150o Gruppo Autonomo, Pilot: Mario Bellagambi Built straight from the box, sorry for awful background....
  8. 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???
  9. Hello mates, this is my latest built. The IMAM Ro.37 A.30 was a two-seater Italian reconnaissance , a product of the Industrie Meccaniche Aeronautiche Meridionali (IMAM) company. Powered by the FIAT A.30 RA, a 600-hp, liquid-cooled V-12, the Ro.37 could reach a top speed of 199 mph (332 kph) at 13,120 ft (4037 m), could land at 67 mph (112 kph), and had a service ceiling of 21,976 ft (6762 m). The kit is the Special Hobby Ro.37 1/48 and is finished in a medium quality, grey soft plastic with recessed panel lines with a low level of detail. The kit contains a set of
  10. Hi Years ago the Revell CR 42 was the only one on the market. I made it for the first time about 40 years ago, and some 20 years ago I was not able to accept any longer it bad look. I removed old paint and tried to reshape as much as possible. I made wider rear part of fuselage by about 1.5 mm but still it remains too round, I am affraid. I reshaped the cowling and the undercarridge as weel as added some inlets and outlets of air. At present much better kits are available (Pavla - second hand and Italeri) so perhaps one day I will try again to model this very nice Fiat last biplane. Marki
  11. Fiat CR.32 Freccia/Chirri 1:48 Special Hobby The CR.32 was an evolutionary development of an earlier Fiat Biplane fighter, and was thrown into the Spanish Civil War on the side of the Nationalist forces against the i-16s of the Republicans. It was renowned for being nimble, and its aerobatic prowess meant that it stayed in service longer than it perhaps should have, as it could still shoot down more modern monoplanes if handled by an experienced pilot. A product of the early 30s, it was already obsolete by the beginning of WWII, but it remained in service with th
  12. Hi, Next rather archive bird from my Italian shelvs- more than 20 years from construction. Fiat BR 20 M, model by Italeri, OOB except decals (drawer mostly). Machine from 277 Squadriglia, 116 Gruppo Bomb., 37 Stormo, Lecce, Italy, Spring (April) 1941. Before posting I cleaned and added a coat of Vallejo matt varnish (acrylic, diluted with water). Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  13. Hi, The last one of Caproni family from my Regia Aeronautica shelvs: Caproni Ca-314. Some other Caproni (101, 111, 133, 100) are in stash... To be done one day . Ca 314 is the last production variant with Isotta-Fraschini engines (I think the Isotta-Fraschini was before WWII an Italian brand like let's say Maserati today - sport and limousine cars, etc...) I added some details mostly inside. Decals from drawer, markings for 40Sq, 76 Gr.OA (? - that is teken from a description of profile of this machine). Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  14. Hi, Next very archive models from my shelves. Almost forty years old... First is Fiat G50 bis, from Airfix - but with deeply reshaped fuselage. A bigger (enlarged by diameter) cowling, also a bit differently (upward) placed, the whole fuselage cut behind cockpit to lower a bit rear part of it. Markings of 351 Squadron, 21th Group, 56th Stormo, Regia Aeronautica based in Ursel (Belgium) during BOB, 1940. Decals partially from ESCI (squadron emblem for example). Unfortunately decals became yellowish with years. Second is Fiat G 55 from Frog, in markings of RSI, 1944, Northern Italy. Th
  15. Crickets against Rats - Regia Aeronautica in the Spanish Civil War 1936/37 vol. I KAGERO - Casemate UK While a lot is known about the German involvement in the Spanish Civil war with the Condor Legion in support of the Nationalists, and the Russians supplying arms to the Republican forces; the involvement of the Italy is less well known. Though reluctant at first, following a direct request from Franco and encouragement from Hitler Mussolini committed his Navy to the seas around Spain, his Army in the form of a Corps of "Volunteer" forces to the ground and the Regia Aeronautica to the a
  16. Hi, Second Italian bird from archive shelf for today - Breda Ba 65. Wiki tells about her things like that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breda_Ba.65 This is vacu kit by Rareplane, I made it about 20 years ago. The airplane was a ground attack machine, which was rather succesfull - 218 build (for pre-war time it was not few) and exported to some countries. Here markings are from 101 Sq, 5 Stormo, Regia Aeronautica from Autumn 1939 - spring 1940 period. Decals from drawer. Now there is a kit available (or not?) by Azur. Regards and comments welcome Jerzy-Wo
  17. Hi, here are some pictures from my Macci C.202,i have done this kit some years back, my models sit on shelfs, that means, they face a lot of dust during their"service live" From time to time they were refurbished and get some updates, i cleaned the clear parts, after that, they got a bath in clear, a new antenna wire was added.The weathering was kept at minimum. It is a typical Hasegawa kit, very nice, easy to build but somewhat expensive. These aircrafts are very special, Mario Castoldi constructed them asymetric with one smaller wing to overcome the propeller torque. My modelling is not
  18. My gesture of self-sacrifice for the modelling community - finished just in time Sword and then RS Models released their state-of-the-art Sagittario kits. Well, at least I wasn't then spoilt for choice and yes, I still managed to use a few Pavla parts (however, modified)... Some in-progress pictures:
  19. Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 Late Italian Reconnaissance Fighter 1:72 Fly The Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 was a single-seat biplane designed for the Regia Aeronautica during the First World War. It was named after the designers of the aircraft and the founder of the Ansaldo company - the S.V.A. acronym being formed from the initials of Umberto Savoia, Rodolfo Verduzio and Giovanni Ansaldo. Despite being one of the fastest combat aircraft of the era, it was found to be unsuitable for its intended role as a fighter. It was therefore adapted for armed reconnaissance, a role in which it enjoyed considerable su
