SM-79 Ser. I Tercio des Extranjeros - Italeri 1/72


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

This is my way to build a Sparviero, I'd like to show you.
The SM.79 introduces in the Spanish civil war in the side of general Francisco Franco. Of course these were given from Mussolini's Italy, suh as the counter side helped by the Soviet Union.

As far as I know the forregin forces was organised in the unit called Tercio des Extranjeros.
In the box I've got 4 markings option, 2 with Spanish markings.
My choosen one is the three tone scheme with sand yellow, green and brown, needless to say all of the in they realy super special Italian tone. Duhh.

I started this construction in February, just before the start of the spring semester of the university, so its going slowly.

In the next weeks I will guide you throught the ongoing building work with updating posts so guys, keep stand by.

Dudes, U R pleasing me :D

So. Here is some update:

The constuction is going on the orthodox way more or less. The interior first, put together the fusalage halves, and so on.

But because of the openned windows, doors ans so on, some parts going to be built in only at the end of the art.

Watch the gaps. The lower wing was been (this is the correct way to say? -so no longer-) deformed, glueing to the upper side took three or four steps, starting from the wingtip.

Gonna be huge, aint it?

Two PE sets are used; Part and Eduard interrior. Actually one sheet was missing from the bag from the two. I was sad. I had to scratch.

Very interesting!

By the way, Legion Condor never used Savoias. It was German unit, using German airplanes.

Italian aviators in Spanish War were called Aviazione Legionaria ("Legion's Aviation" - pretending to be air part of the Spanish Foreign Legion).

In Spain the italian forces where hidden as part of the 'Tercio des Extranjeros' (the spanish Foreign Legion) for political reason ; Germany forces, arrived later, don't had the necessity of this masquerade and formed the so called 'Legion Condor'. Italian and German forces used only national equipment; no S-79 flow for the germans..

I'd suggest simply "was deformed".

Hey, a Matchbox Savoia (look at those trenches...)!

You're doing jolly nice work there Boris, looking forward to the finished article. Maybe you'll post your pics of it when it's ready in the "ready for inspection" section ?

Attention with the shading ! The wing of the S-79 was covered in plywood and with fabric glued over : no trace of panel lines or other similia, only a continuos smooth surface.

I 'd like to post those pics in the "RFI" section, but You'd better stand by :)

Actually I wanted to shade not only the panel lines but some random other spots. As a pre-weathering.

I used this photo as reference

I can see two thin dark pararell lines. Between the slat's and the aileron's.

But I'll make a revision.

Now I have to stop again for some days. I found the last bottle of MM Italian sand maybe all over Hungary but it takes some days for one of the local campanies to take it to the closest store from the further... I guess they lost it :D

OK then. I have two pics about the 28-11. Those two shows different camo. Similar, but not the same, so I made something based on the photos. Maybe a littlebit what if, but I tired of investigating evry pixels.

After one thin layer:
