Ok so I’m about finished a GB project and will have some more free time (we don’t count the other GB’s or projects I have going), so I’m looking at starting another long-term project! As most people who know I usually inhabit the GB or Whatif sections, so a build in this section is a first for me.

So I now want something I can work on in between other projects, something I don’t need to rush, another big long term project. There is an Arado Ar-234 (a 1/48th Ar-234 in P5 configuration, wt swept wings, turbo-props, it’s in the Whif section) that was meant to be a long term project, but at the rate I’m going that’ll be finished by the end of next month, was meant to keep me busy until at least Christmas!

Again for those that know me I have a great love of resin models and can think of nothing better than being up to my arm pits in resin dust (if you get enough of it you can lie down and do resin angels!). But I’m actually thinking of having a bit of a break from it…..sort of!

So I have two models of the same aircraft that I have just been dying to build, a Savoia Marchette SM.79, both in 1/48th. One is a Flashback model with resin and PE bits which is a bit hard to find, the other is a Vintage Models Resin one which is quite hard to come by! I have got lots of extra bits to go with either (they’re not made for these models, but there are always ways to make them fit!), pulls lots of decal choices.

So which to build???

I can’t make up my mind so I’d like to see what the opinion is? Has anyone built either of these models and their experiences, and what would everyone like to see being built?

They’re both really interesting models and the detailing on them is excellent. Accuracy…well I’m not sure, i’ll have to do some more research on the SM.79 to see.

Don’t expect this to be a fast build (opps I said that with the Arado!!!), it’ll be a project I come to when I want a break from other projects. But I do really like the look of this aircraft so I know I just have to build it. Worse case scenario, I’ll build the two together!

So please thoughts and choices…..I aim to start this in a couple of weeks….if not sooner!
