  1. Farman F.190 was fairly successful interwar utility/transport/passenger aircraft. First flown in 1928, it evolved to several subtypes; altogether 158 were built. Crezan.ne has quite a bit of material of the type. The site has several ”biographies” of individual planes. I have SBS Model’s ’Air France’ boxing of F.190. It depicts F-AIJZ, which had longish career. Built in 1929, it was finally written off or lost sometime in 1942. First an airliner it flew mail and passengers in central Europe for C.I.D.N.A. airline. Later it was used as a trainer for Air France pilots. I’ll be doing F-AIJZ in orange-and-silver C.I.D.N.A. livery when it was rented by Paris-Soir to cover the 1932 Tour de France. This could’ve gone to French Fancy GB as well, but I think I will need the extra weeks this GB has before the deadline. Cheers, -M

  4. Piaggio PC.7 Pegna, resin miniature by SBS Model. Painted with Gunze Super Italian Red and Vallejo Liquid Gold. It was my first purchase from this company and I am positively surprised by the quality. The cast is sharp with amazing detail and excellent fit, on part with Tamiya and Finemolds plastic sets. The crude wooden trestle is scratch built, as they didn't have the SBS ones at my usual hobby shop
  5. SBS models Piaggio PC7. lovely little gem of a kit, went togther really well. I also got the SBS laser cut wood trestle set, which you really need to show off this kit. thank you for looking

  7. From 2 years ago, an iconic French plane superbly kitted by a small manufacturer in what I consider one of the best casts I have ever seen. The level of detail, precision and research that this manufacturer put on this kit is undoubtedly up there with the best on the market. Honestly, I was in awe when I started to look at the parts and during the build. This is a jewel seldom seen in terms of sharpness and cast standards. I have also built from this manufacturer their remarkable DH88 Comet, Macchi MC72, Latecoere 28.3 and Caudron C.600 Aiglon.

  11. Caudron C.450 1:72 SBS Model The C.450 was a racing aircraft designed and built to take part in the 1934 Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe race. It was developed from the C.362 flown in the race the year before. 1 C.450 with spatted undercarriage and 3 C.460s with retractable undercarriage were built for this race. The aircraft were mainly spruce and birch plywood with metal engine bearers, cowling and fuel tanks. The aircraft would be further developed into the C.461 for the following years race. As a racer the C.450 set a world speed record of 268.21 mph and did win the 1934 Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe race. The Kit The kit from SBS is a full resin kit, with resin clear parts, photo-etch, pre-cut masks (not shown) and decals. The resin parts are exceptionally well cast and look to be easy to remove from their pour blocks. The reviewer is building the SBS Caudron C.600 and the parts in that kit came away easily and cleanly. Construction starts with the cockpit and placing in the front and rear bulkheads along with the floor, seat, controls, and instrument panel. A tip is to put the internal in and check the fuselage alignments before doing any sanding of the fuselage halves. Next up the wings can be added to the fuselage. A tip from SBS here is to join the wings and then add them to the fuselage as there are slots for them. Once the wings are on the spats and wheels can be added. At the rear of the plane the fin, rudder and tail surfaces are added, along with the tail wheel. At the front the engine is added, along with the front, props & spinner and the exhausts. Decals Only one scheme is included which is the winner from the 1934 Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe race. Conclusion This is a fairly simple little kit, much like the real aircraft. If should pose no problems to a competent modeller and maybe a good starter into resin models. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of Insert other media
  12. Ju-87B Stuka exhaust + radiator cowling set for Airfix kit (72053) 1:72 SBS Model The Airfix kit is a good one, however resin replacements can add extra details, this is a drop in set once they have been removed from their blocks. Conclusion This is a good set and should pose no problems. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of Insert other media
  13. Hawker Hunter wheel set for Revell kit (72054) 1:72 SBS Model The Revell Hunter is great kit, but like a lot of kits the wheels are a not as good as resin replacements can be, this is a drop in set once they have been removed from their blocks. Conclusion This is a good set and should pose no problems. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of Insert other media
  14. South African Air Force in East Africa WWII Vol.1 (D72036) 1:72 SBS Model This set is for the Gloster Gladiator and Curtis Mohawk Mk IV used by the SAAF in East Africa during WWII. There are decals for two Mohawks and two Gladiators. There are enough markings on the sheet to build all 4 schemes, Mohawk Mk IV 2522 "Northern Transvaal", 4 Sqn Kenya 1941 Mohawk Mk IV 2524, 3 Sqn 1941 Gladiator Mk II, N2287 / E, 3 Sqn Gladiator Mk II, N5813 Kenya 1940 Conclusion This is a good sheet with unusual aircraft used in East Africa by the SAAF. The decals look to be in register, colour dense and should pose no problems. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of Insert other media
  15. Bf 109G-10 in Hungarian Service (D72029) 1:72 SBS Model This set is for the Bf 109G-10 as used by the Hungarian Air Force. 4 Options are provided for aircraft in different years of service. Black 7, 101 Vadaszszazad, Neubiberg, May 1945 White 12, 101, Vadaszszazad, Zeltweg 1945 Red 12, 101 Vadaszszazad, Neubiberg 1945 Yellow 13, 101 Vadaszszazad, Neubiberg May 8th 1945 (This aircraft is the only surviving Hungarian 109, now at Planes of Fame in the US. Conclusion This is a good sheet with a fair spread of G-10s used by the Hungarians. The decals look to be in register, colour dense and should pose no problems. Recommended.

  22. Fieseler Fi 156 Storch in Finnish Service 1:72 SBS Model SBS Model are a producer of kits, aftermarket parts and decals from Budapest, Hungary. This sheet is the latest in a growing range of high quality decals, covering four different Storchs in Finnish service. The schemes on offer provide as much variety as it reasonably posibble, and it's particularly pleasing to see a post-war example on the sheet. The following aircraft are catered for: Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-113, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, August 1940. This aicraft is finished in overall RLM 02 Grau; Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-112, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, June 1950. This aircraft is finished in Olive Green over aluminium dope; Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-113, LeLv 14, Tiiksjarvi, December 1942. This aicraft is finished in Olive Green and Black over RLM 65 blue-grey; Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-112, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, June 1950. This aircraft is finished in overall Olive Green; Aside from being an interesting collection of schemes, the decals themselves look to be of very good quality. The printing is crisp and sharp, while colours are bold and solid. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well. Conclusion This interesting sheet has been nicely executed. If you have an Academy or Airfix Storch in your stash, then this sheet may well tempt you to build one or two aircraft of the Finnish Air Force with an interesting variation in markings. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  23. Messerschmitt Bf-109F-4 in Hungarian Service Vol. II 1:72 SBS Model SBS Model are a producer of kits, aftermarket parts and decals from Budapest, Hungary. This sheet is the latest in a growing range of high quality decals, covering four different Bf 109 F-4s in Hungarian service. The schemes on offer are all more colourful than the standard Luftwaffe fare, with the winter camourflaged V-07 looking particularly appealing to my eye. The following aircraft are catered for: Red 2, 1/1. vadászszázad, Poltova, early 1943; V-07, 1/1. vadászszázad, Rossoh, January 1943. This was the aircraft flown by the ace Sgt. Dezso Szentgyorgi; V0+30, 1/1. vadászszázad, Ushyn, early summer 1943; and Yellow 7, 1/1. vadászszázad, Poltava, early 1943. This plane was also flown by Sgt. Dezso Szentgyorgi. Aside from being an interesting collection of schemes, the decals themselves look to be of very good quality. The printing is crisp and sharp, while colours are bold and solid. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well. Conclusion This interesting sheet has been nicely executed. If you have some of the AZ Models Friedrich in your stash, then this sheet may well tempt you to build one or two Hungarian aircraft with interesting variation in markings. Highly recommended.

  24. Fiat G.50 in Finnish Service (D48032) 1:48 SBS Model The Finns purchased and acquired military equipment from all over the world during World War II, including from Italy, whom they ordered 35 Fiat G.50 fighters from, although two were destroyed on their way to Finland (I wonder who paid for them?), so only 33 saw service with 26 Squadron. As is common with many decal sets, the sheet arrives in a ziplok bag with the multi-page colour A5 instructions doubling as the header-card/protection, and a long sheet of decals protected by a sheet of translucent paper. From the sheet you can build any and all of the following, as there are enough of the roundels to complete them all if you have enough models to apply them to. FA-11 of 3/LLv 26, Lunkula in Autumn 1941 FA-21 of 1/LeLv 26, Kilpasilta in Spring 1943 FA-22 of 2/LLv 26 Joroinen in Summer 1941 FA-26 of 1/LeLv 26 Kilpasilta in Winter 1942/43 Most of the options retain some vestiges of the original Italian scheme, and there is evidence of overpainting in places. Yellow lower wingtips and tail bands are present on all options, with some having yellow cowlings, and a mixture of finishes on option B. Decals are printed with the SBS logo, and have good registration, sharpness and colour density, with a thin semi-matt carrier film cut close to the printed areas. On my sample there were a few tiny areas of black printing that showed signs of spreading, although this was only really visible under magnification, so of little issue. Conclusion It's good to see some unusual decal options for the G.50, away from the standard Italian schemes that are usually seen. The Finnish aspect of WWII is less-frequently depicted in the West, so it's nice to see these available. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  25. After the 1/48th PZL P.1 kit (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234954879-148-pzl-p1-resin-kit-by-arma-hobby-released) and to fill the gap in releasing models after the delaying of their new 1/48th Iskra ( http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ts11iskra.pl%2F2014%2F07%2Fnowe-plany-iskry%2F&h=sAQEVXoQo&s=1 ), Arma Hobby is now working on a 1/72nd PZL P.1 resin kit.
