Good to see this one coming together Pat. Seems a lot of aeroplane for only two bombs though :lol:

Exactly my thoughts as well. Did they have to save weight on the payload so they could fit it with a reverse gear?

OK OK,  yes there are other bombs but they go under the wings which I need to paint first :coolio:

 

I can't put off facing the camouflage on top much longer  :frantic:

Hi Pat,

 

Looking forward to seeing this. No doubt you have already worked out the paint scheme, but according to my refs it is likely to be Giallo Mimetico 3 - close to FS33434/Hu 81 (per IPMS Stockholm), Verde Mimetico 2 FS30092/Hu 149 and Marrone Mimetico FS20140 - a mix of Hu 113 and Hu 119 on top and Grigio Mimetico FS 26293/ Hu 140 underneath.  I think they are the same colours I used on these, though all mine are from the Colourcoats range, and I put a thinned wash of their Giallo Mim 4 over to tone it down a bit - Giallo Mim 3 is lighter and more yellow, and the green is applied thinly as a mottle and not as dark/dense as it perhaps should be, but it might give you an idea.

In fact I have just found a pic of my test shot using Giallo 3, Verde 2 and Marrone - it is the lighter patch on the left.

Are you sticking with the kit markings for what I believe is 50o  Gruppo, 16Stormo?

 

No doubt some of our Italian modelling friends can give you more accurate info, but I would just go with what you like as it is your build.

Hi Pat,

 

your CANT is indeed taking shape and the twin rudder model is the more exciting.

The yellow cowlings look perfect. Did you use Humbrol enamel paint?

Looking forward to the next installment.

 

Cheers mate

Thanks JR

I used white car spray paint underneath, then Tamiya Camel Yellow from a spray can.

Considering my track record with yellow this result is nothing short of miraculous :rofl2:

Cheers Pat

Hi Pat,

 

The camo pattern looks very good so far, but I can't tell from the pic whether or not you have put a coat of yellow on the uppers before starting on the green, assuming you are still going for the 3 colour scheme. Still, everybody has their own way of doing things and quite rightly so - should look stunning when complete.

 

Best of luck.

Freehand with a brush, if there's an easier way, now would be a good time to tell me :fingerscrossed:

Oh you silly man!

The bush around is full of massive spiders!

Harmless and easy to train, I could have sent you a box-full. With eight legs and a saucer of green paints, the camo is done in no time!

Glad to see nonetheless that your Italian is becoming fluent. You can now order a light hazelnut ice cream (gelato! REPEAT AFTER ME!)

And the Camel yellow in spray is perfect. Great to use for yellow wing US Navy airplanes too...

 

Looks great!

Have fun.

Excellent work on the camo Pat.

 

I was looking at the crew figures, which seem similar to the ones in Supermodel's SM 81 that you kindly let me have. They are not bad, but the ones they gave you in their BV-138 4 years later were even better as they had seperate arms for posing. For a small company they really did try to put as much detail in as possible it seems. By modern standards they may seem a bit crude, but they really were good for their day - better perhaps than say Airfix. Maybe I am confusing them with Italeri, but I think I read somewhere that the company was set up by a couple of modellers who were frustrated that nobody was producing Italian aircraft they wanted to build themselves and it shows! Certainly it seems that is how Italeri started and I think they bought out Supermodel a few years later.
