Fiat G.50 1:72 Airfix

Another oldie from the shelf. This is the venerable Airfix Fiat G.50 with some improvement. I made this kit years ago when this was the only g.50 around. I scrachbuild the cockpit area and the wheel wells, intakes etc and rescribed the surfaces. The engine is surprisingly good. I made the gear doors from thin aluminum sheet and cut out/repositioned the flaps. The painting was made after the box art by airbrush, the kit decals were used. All C&C are welcome. Cheers!

  1. Another outstanding build, Gabor…..I like it.

  2. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Great work Gabor, very interesting scheme and aircraft. Thanks for sharing the images.

  3. Nice work Gabor, the airfix kit is a bit basic and very old, but otherwise not too bad. Fantastic work on the rescribing, and all the little extras such as the air intake and the piping in the undercarriage bay. (I need a replacement prop for my G.50 if you know where I can get one please let me know). Great little aircraft and colour scheme – thanks Gabor

  4. another excellent example of your work! I built this same kit and although simple it does provide a satisfying result!

  5. Nice build of an old kit Gabor.
    Excellent finish, the paint job looks really good.
