  1. New SBS resin kit in 1/48th scale is: - ref. 4008 - Macchi M.33 Source: https://www.facebook.com/story.php/?id=100059696543808&story_fbid=875320511134492 V.P.

  3. Hi there! After almost three weeks I have finally persuaded myself to post photos of the finished Miles Sparrowhawk, which I have built during the start of January... I prefer building over the taking photos! The complete progress was documented here: In the end of the build I forgot to post the latest progress, but it consisted of masking, painting and doing the final touches so nothing really to show. Overall, the build was straightforward, the only serious issue with the building process was my incompetence of gluing the parts together precisely with the CA glue. All the parts fit perfectly and I really appreciated that the joints of cockpit parts had enough space between for the layer of paint. The only blemish on beauty was a matt surface on the wings and fuselage parts which was easily smoothed out with very fine sanding paper and water. However, the SBS model company is really far ahead of other resin model manufacturers and they really know their craft well. Here are the photos of the the tiny Miles: Thanks for watching and have a nice weekend!
  4. Happy New Year 2024 to you all! A few days ago I have started this pretty little kit from SBS model and so far it's going quite well. I wanted to build something easy and fast, so the Sparrowhawk was a quick choice. I have never build a kit from SBS models, It's my first time, but I have quite a few models by them in my stash. I am making the 1935' King's Cup - G-ADNL aircraft in the cream finish. This is my progress for now, have a nice time!
  5. The Finnish Air Force bomber command had a total of 23 Ju 88 A-4's. The bombers were bought from the Luftwaffe and they arrived in Finland during the spring of 1943. I built my model from a 1/72 scale Revell kit. The Finnish markings are from a S.B.S decal set. The model depicts the plane reg. JK-256. The bombers arrived in Finland in the Luftwaffe splinter camo and with the German markings on. In a hurry to get the bombers into action the three colour Germa camo was not overpainted but only the Finnish markings were attached to the wings and the fuselage. The German Balkenkreutzes on the under sides of the wings were hastily covered with white paint but the black ones on the upper side of the wings were left uncovered. For the splinter camo I bought LF Model's masks and for the german dark green, black green and light blue camo I used Xtracolor RLM paints. However, I must frankly say that I am disappointed at the outcome and at the too similar hues of the two greens. To my eyes they are almost indiscernible. I don't know if the Xtracolor dark green and black green paints are simply too similar. But what can you do! The FAF planes during the so called continuation war also carried the yellow eastern front identification stripes in the wings, the fuselage and under the engines. The cockpit of the plane is a real green house. There are dozens of tiny window panes and without the Eduard masks it would have been a nightmare to paint the frames. Otherwise the model was easy but rather time consuming to build.

  12. Hi there Here are some pictures of my 1/72 Seafang recently completed. A number of changes were made to the AZ plastic parts in the kit. The following parts were stolen from. Special Hobby Seafire FR 47: Spinner and propellers, spinner tip shortened by 2 mm Cylinder head covers Carburetter intake Complete tail section and tail wheel SBS exhausts and cannons were used as well as Barracuda Resin wheels Plastic card undercarriage doors were made. Decals came from Modeldecal. And here are 2 pictures with the Seafang and an Airfix Mk 1 Spitfire I built at the same time. Regards Toby PS There is a build thread as well but my linking skills are not too good.
  13. 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

  16. 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
  17. 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

  19. 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.

  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
