1/48 Flying Machines Fiat G.55

March 3, 2019 · in Aviation · · 14 · 2.2K

1a Squadriglia, Cascina Vaga 1944. The Flying Machines kit was created by / CMK and is the same plastic as the SH kit but comes with extra resin cockpit and photo etch parts and also parts to do the torpedo bomber version. They screwed up the hood portion of the canopy so I used an old Falcon canopy and cut the hood from that. I kept weathering to a minimum as this camouflage scheme, which was experimental, was on the aircraft for a short period of time before the 74, 75, 76 scheme was applied.

  1. Dale, its always fun to see something new and/or unusually. Its extra special when its done this good. Well done !

  2. Another good one, Dale.

  3. Nice ! You did it again and posted up another beauty... This plane looks much better in my opinion wearing these colors over the standard RLM 74/75/76.

    Italian camouflage is always unique.


  4. You've done some very cool subjects but this one is by far my favorite

  5. Yes, a great color scheme, nice!

  6. Awesome camo job on that Fiat Dale. I like it

  7. It's nice to see a non-standard scheme. A very well-done build and finish on this.
