  1. This looks superb Bogdan !
    What are these SBS kits like to build?

    • It was my first resin kit. Not too easy, not too hard to put all the pieces together.
      I'm quite sure that I will build another one, Finnish this time.

  2. Great build and a very nice presentation. Can you share how you did the graphics on the display base? I'd like to do something similar for my current project. I'm a trained graphic designer but I haven't settled on a method to translate my design to a wooden base.

    • The base was realized by one of my friends, Ovidiu Cupse. I really don't know what program he use to design his wooden bases.
      I will ask him about it.

  3. nicely executed camo clouds...that's not easy

  4. Beauty! Nicely done splotches in small scale. looks like a nice kit. I am one of the few that thinks the G-50 is good looking. Ciao.

  5. Beautifully done model,wasn’t aware they did
    Model aircraft in resin kits. 2 thumbs up!

  6. I agree with the masses - nicely presented and an exceptional job in that scale as well.

  7. Looks good Bogdan.

  8. Marvelous!
    Makes me want to try a resin model, too...

  9. Great looking G50, SBS really is the best when it comes to resin kits!


  10. Very nice! I hope SBS does this in 1/48.

  11. Great great great! Beautifully build and finished! I like Your painting work. I built this kit twice so far (and I have two more in my stash). It's a cleverly engineered kit but with a bit difficult breakdon because of the lot of options.

    • Thanks.
      Putting the engine in the right spot it's a little bit tricky. I've had to replace the original propeller with one from a CR. 42 because the blades were curved.
      I'm thinking of a Finnish one now!

  12. Cracking work, Bogdan! Absolutely stunning - I have been back and looked at this a lot. Should be winning prizes with this !
