Fieseler Fi 156 Storch in Finnish Service

1:72 SBS Model

SBS Model are a producer of kits, aftermarket parts and decals from Budapest, Hungary. This sheet is the latest in a growing range of high quality decals, covering four different Storchs in Finnish service. The schemes on offer provide as much variety as it reasonably posibble, and it's particularly pleasing to see a post-war example on the sheet. The following aircraft are catered for:

  • Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-113, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, August 1940. This aicraft is finished in overall RLM 02 Grau;
  • Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-112, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, June 1950. This aircraft is finished in Olive Green over aluminium dope;
  • Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-113, LeLv 14, Tiiksjarvi, December 1942. This aicraft is finished in Olive Green and Black over RLM 65 blue-grey;
  • Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-112, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, June 1950. This aircraft is finished in overall Olive Green;

Aside from being an interesting collection of schemes, the decals themselves look to be of very good quality. The printing is crisp and sharp, while colours are bold and solid. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well.

Conclusion

 

This interesting sheet has been nicely executed. If you have an Academy or Airfix Storch in your stash, then this sheet may well tempt you to build one or two aircraft of the Finnish Air Force with an interesting variation in markings. Highly recommended.

Nice review, thanks, but I believe there´s a typo in the second option; ST-112 in Olive Green over Aluminum Dope should be in March 1942, not June 1950 🙂. This is how one of them looked in Aviation Museum a few years ago. V-P
