Special Hobby 1/32 Fiat G-50
November 7, 2013 in Aviation
Here it is, SH’s newest big scale offering, Fiat’s first monoplane. Some may say it is,ah, lacking in pulchritude (how about THAT one?) but it grew on me as I built it and now I think she is bellissimo. Not too hard a build, the tough part being the engine/cowling installation, due to less than positive mounting arrangements. Other than adding pushrods and wiring to the engine, and brake lines, it’s done using all kit parts. The spots before your eyes are all Model master mixes. The markings represent 150 Squadriglia, 2 Gruppo, the first G-50 unit sent to the Libyan desert in late 1940. For you who like more Northern climes, a Finnish version is available. Ciao!
