1/48 Smer FIAT Cr32
December 5, 2012 in Aviation
This is Smer’s FIAT Cr32. Many of Smer’s kits are old Artiplast re-releases and are very crude. They are usually in 1/50th scale. This one seems closer to actual 1/48th scale. The decals were useless (yellowed and only in Austrian Air Force markings), so I searched the internet and found and image of Cr32s fighting in the Balearic Islands at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. These markings were easy to paint, so my decision was made. This kit requires some modeling skills – there is no interior to speak of other than a seat, so I added interior tubing and an instrument panel. I think this is the best of the Smer Regia Aeronautica kits.
