This is the plane flown by the Tenant(Lt) Giorgio Solaroli Marquis of Briona of the 74 ° Squadriglia,23° Gruppo, 3° Stormo at Habu Haggag in Lybia in 1942. The plane wears the recently applied badge of the Angry wasp, and the camo is typical of the mid production of Breda. The individual number is painted on the fin in a white triangle, the 74° Squadriglia being known for the many variations of style of numbers.

Not surprisingly, an excellent rendition of the beautiful Folgore from you :worthy::clap::clap:

 

Can I ask how you did the wheel wells? Scratch building or AM? They look excellent, anyway.

Ciao Giemme! This is the Eduard set for the wheel bay, a great departure from scratch! Ciao e grazie mille.

I definitely need to get one if I get round building another Folgore or Veltro. Thanks for the heads up :thumbsup:

 

Merci bien

 

Ciao

Stunning build of this graceful fighter. 

Paint work and weathering looks great and the mentioned wheel wells are really impressive with their details.

You should display it on a mirror.

Very nice build. I have an eduard limited edition in the stash. The green squiggles have scared me off. How did you do them?

free hand airbrush. Best regards.

Beautiful build of this elegant and racy-looking thoroughbred!

 

As usual, I'm a bit skeptical to paint chipping on the prop blades of an otherwise virtually pristine airframe. Was the Italian prop paint really that prone to falling off? ;-)

 

Magnificent modelling.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim
