    Hi people, so an out the box build, with just a little mod to open up the hump, otherwize a stright foreward job......but then came the camo....the model is all brush painted so took a few days to paint needless to say. Yes it's clean as I'm not good at weathering and when I used Humbrol matt varnish on other builds now that they are old the varnish has a yellow tint to it, so I'm leaving it alone for now. Hope you like.
    ohhh and the decals were a nightmare as they would not peel from the backing, theres only 10 of them and 6 gave me trouble but all was fine in the end, I elected to have the codes on the white panel because TBH you could not see them on the camo otherwise. So not bothered that it's wrong like that.
    Found me a hot sunny airstrip [​IMG]

    nicely done. Can I ask about the processes you used to apply your camo scheme. I have a MAVAG Heja to finish with a similar mottled scheme to apply and never having done one and eager for any tips I can derive.....

    Thanks for your comments people

    Hi parsifal,

    I guess these count as a sort of work in progress, but I just wanted to record the build with the painting and the build up of the camo and in the early stages how I was still going with a closed up hump but I'm very pleased I modded and opened it up

    I find it amazing how, for the most part, you kept the camo division lines the same size while brush painting

    So... How did you get the trim lines around the colors so even?

    That Marchetti was one strange aircraft. Like "all birds are aerodynamic" I guess so are all airplanes. But that one sure looks ungainly.

    Nice job on the model.

    No 1/48 Italian ground crew out there so volunteered a few Germans :LOL:

    To make my display a little more interesting, found myself a cart that was ideal for the torpedo

    That's good work there, those Italians did like their three-engined planes.
