Very impressive though not very successful Machine in my opinion.
now the italian Phase goes along with the japanese
This kit will be a good challenge i guess. Rescribing etc. filling, sanding and so on... But nevertheless: Thank yo Special Hobby für realizing this one in

never seen one like this one before, you really choose uncommon subjects
7. December 2018 at 19:28:38
Das ist aber kein Japaner !
7. December 2018 at 20:14:51
Still, Japanese planes are my favorites, but i won't look away when someone is building something special that you don't see very often! There is a lot of resin involved i see. That will be interesting....

I still got some big Hinomarus in my stash
Thank you for your apperances Gentlemen
Olivier your german is perfect btw.

Intriguing one, never heard of it, but will be following with interest...
23. December 2018 at 10:49:40
What kind of paint scheme will you consider? I had never heard about this bomber before. I checked with Wikipedia and I saw there was a mottled paint scheme at least.
23. December 2018 at 10:56:35
Now that's something you don't see every day (or ever).
Interesting looking aircraft - I've not seen it before. Just read that one had a 4 inch anti-shipping cannon!
23. December 2018 at 11:21:54
There was an american bomber too with this feature B-25 with a Sherman gun in the nose: [img1]
23. December 2018 at 12:55:41
Welcome guys and thanks for your Appearances
@Treehugger i will do the "navy" paintscheme of the kit black undersides (field applied) and Olivegreen.
ALso have the Flying machines Kit which is the early version I.seria with the mottled camo scheme and
the nose turret.
@Gorby Yes that was the A version which special hobby also produced and i own. The german Luftwaffe used it after italian capitulation
24. December 2018 at 14:04:52
Well Daniel, this is nice ! I wish I had one ! Plus the messerschmitt 264 , as these were the first strategic bombers of the axis. Unfortunately they came in to being too late to make a difference. I'll be watching this!
25. December 2018 at 05:58:35
You are right Alex
I am sure the P. 108 will be reissued, but the Me 264 hm... Whatever thes are no very well done kits at all.
But the only games in Town for these types.
26. December 2018 at 18:50:26
Just came across this one Daniel, watching with interest.
10. August at 11:11:43
Count me in!
Are you becoming a new speedbuilder?
14. August at 17:39:05
Welcome guy(s) and thanks for your interest
@Soeren.. this thing will take a lot of time and patience so no speedbuild.
14. August at 17:51:08
Just stumbled over that- most interesting! You will make a marvel out of this, that´s for sure- and I will follow for sure
15. August at 14:11:15
Taking a seat. Glad this one is back on the bench
15. August at 14:51:34
Thank you Roland glad you found it and i will try my best
@Alec yap thank you mate! - encouragement is needed with this kit
Lets stick together, come on, come on...
16. August at 17:03:54
An interesting aircraft Daniel. Never heard of it before seeing this build. Looking good so far.
20. August at 09:59:19
Hi James, and a warm welcome and thanky you for your kind words
22. August at 11:16:46
Wow, another interesting project. Looking great. I was suprised that there were only 24 planes built of type I and II and 16 were lost during operations. I've read in one review that engines are not so good as a rest of the kit. Is it true? Looking forward for next pictures.
22. August at 11:30:55
Watching this one! I have no idea where you have been storing such large builds.
22. August at 11:46:52
Call me utterly ignorant, but I never knew Piaggio was making planes aswel
Looking good, this one
22. August at 12:18:18
Hi David, nice to have you here and yes the kit engines are crappy and also the surfaces of the main parts is let us say ok. But the clear -and Resinparts are really top.
Thank you for your interest in this project
22. August at 14:01:00
@Davewelcome mate and added some pictures and you are right.. It is indeed a big Bird.
@Sergej Take a seat and thank you
22. August at 14:02:19
Nice image with the Me 109. I can't imagine how huge it is.
22. August at 17:01:21
Hi DAvid.. It is really a big plane and the 109 looks like a bug or something on its wing
23. August at 14:23:27
Hi Holger, jo extrem massig auch von der Form her
10 Tag noch, dann simmer quasi Inselnachbarn... ok SPiekeroog hängt noch dazwischen
25. August at 16:12:11
Cool topic & a jolly good start
Joining the beholders crowd!
25. August at 16:56:03
Welcome Slavo, and nice you join the crowd
Did some Blackbasing, the Big italian Blackbird
25. August at 18:23:36
Looking awesome just in primer!
25. August at 20:16:53
Thank you James
Now the usual marmorizing with filtered and softened insignia white
26. August at 12:03:29
Fun seeing you guys add varied shading to the hull before adding the final layers of paint.
I have to try that out.
26. August at 15:07:22
Do this, it is really easy and is a good preparation for the final coat.
26. August at 17:03:50
Beautiful work so far and interesting bird, count me in Daniel!
27. August at 04:58:11
H STephan and Sascha.. Thank you mates and welcome.
How do you like the green color? First layer
28. August at 12:25:20
Compated to the cucumber-esque tones of the Betty, this one has a dedicatedly more fruitful and zesty touch...
Seriously - looking very good - big plane-big playground, the shading comes out nicely - a great base for further blends & techniques!
28. August at 12:52:16
Thank you Slavo
YAp i added more layers. What Do you think? Does the color fit the original thing?
28. August at 15:17:17
Great progress, the paint job looks good from here!
28. August at 17:28:44
I have no idea if the colour is accurate or not but it looks superb mate. Nice contrasts in colour depths. I like it.
29. August at 18:30:09
Thank you Robert, Urban and James...
demasked, some Decals added and now i can go for the washing. I am also quiet satisfied with the color choice.
The Props will be a real challenge, Resin and kit parts mixed and with super glue you have usually only one shot.
1. September at 11:31:43
Thank you Stephan and Roland
much appreciated but I got stuck with the Props now
4. September at 22:32:08
Looking really good, the shading seems great on the pictures & I really like the "zombie cheers grinder - look" exhaust flame suppressors
5. September at 06:10:02
You've done a great job again on the paintwork Daniel
5. September at 19:05:49
Thank you Slavo and James! Feel honored that you like the paintwork????
6. September at 15:47:50
The question marks are an keyboard accident mates..sorry.
So with a little help from a friend finally got the props done. Now the final bits and pieces, paintwork, washes and final coating of some areas will be done
and the finish line is within sight, for this monster.
While waiting for some ordered washing stuff started another Bomber project
8. September at 18:10:58
Almost ready for take off. Another great bird to your record, Daniel !
8. September at 18:24:49
Perfectly timed along with the Ferrari triumph at Monza comes this fabulous top-tier product of Mussolini-era Italian engineering - grande!
Really great treatment of those big surfaces and a model with quite some "presence" - well done sir!
I quite do not completely understand some design decissions on the plane, like the shape of the nose and the two small bubbles on the back (2 crew guiding the nacelle mounted defensive guns left/right?), but I surely do like the result!
8. September at 19:37:54
that one is for sure in dire need off a plastic surgeon for a new nosejob... weird looking aircraft and beautiful work...
9. September at 12:05:51
Thank you Olivier, Roland, Slavo and Bart
And yes if it wasn't for the historical look i would have given it a new nose Design
24. September at 08:46:06
24. September at 09:14:34
Love your choice of 'left-field' subjects and their superb constructions, Daniel...
