opus999 Posted August 27, 2022 Share Posted August 27, 2022 "Blink and you'll miss it" because I hope this goes quickly. Having just come off two Yak-38 builds with extensive kit rework and scratch built detailing which together took about 12 weeks, I picked something with a low part count and that I don't feel compelled to super-detail. Since the cockpit opening is so small, I don't feel an urge to work on the cockpit besides assembly. I'm just going to build and not over-think it, which will be a welcome break! I did some research earlier in the week and figured out that the paint scheme that Airfix gives you is not correct for this aircraft (most probably). I figured out through research and some discussion here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235114273-fiat-g50-352-squadron-camo-question/ that it should be green and brown stripes (for lack of a better term) over tan. Something like the build at this page: http://hsfeatures.com/features04/fiatg50ws_1.htm Although I don't know mine will look as good. So here's the box: and the sprues, after I started cleaning up parts: This is a "Vintage Classics" release and the date molded on the inside of the wing is 1967! I wasn't expecting it to be terrific. It is workable -- the fit isn't terrible, but not outstanding either. Some minor flash to clean up. I am looking forward to this one, and I hope you are too! 17 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
