Revell 1/72 Fiat G.91 Tiger Meet Nr5452


Recommended Posts

Hello,Filipe - I hope I'm one of the first to compliment you on a splendid looking build of your 'Gina'.I saw this aircraft at 'RIAT'.Your build is a perfect replica of that and I love the detail and level of finish in the clean and sharp paint scheme.Very nice indeed.All the best,Paul.

That's a very pretty model. I too saw it at RIAT, think I have some pictures of it somewhere.

Looks great Filipe! Makes me want to get mine out of my stash and start it. (Ho ho ho, yeah right.)

And if anyone takes Kampartiger up on his offer, I can supply scans of the instructions.

Hi Guys

Thanks everybody for the support!

very nice, always loved this scheme ! can you tell me who is making the decals for it? or is it out of the box? thanks :)

They are out of the box. Unfortunately they don't correctly reproduce the tiger stripes. Most of them were brush painted.

I think Carpena has some for another version of our G.91 Tiger Meet, the 5454 if I´m not mistaken.

Very nice indeed - that's not a re-boxing of the old Matchbox kit is it?

I don't think so. I think its revells own!

I´ve made files for the 3 views of the correct stripes based on this great walkaround by João Gomes https://plus.google.com/photos/100151557626402732381/albums/5829947008859336417?banner=pwa

My stripes was based on these photos.

If anyone wants them, please ask, I think they are somewhere around the bench!

Best regards

FIlipe

Matchbox made the twin-engine G91Y.  This one used by the Portuguese is instead a single-engine G-91 R.  The general lines are therefore different as well ... And thank you Matchbox for doing it ... Greetings
