Piaggio P.108-Serie II *finished*

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
my scale

A must see! I take a seat
7. December 2018, 19:27
never seen one like this one before, you really choose uncommon subjects :)

Das ist aber kein Japaner !

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....

Anybody knows where to get italian Airmen of WWII in 1/72?

Christian Keller
Interesting project, I will keep watching ;)

Bart Goesaert
Intriguing one, never heard of it, but will be following with interest...
23. December 2018, 10:49
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, 10:56
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!

There was an american bomber too with this feature B-25 with a Sherman gun in the nose: [img1]

Daniel Klink
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

Alex-Ovidiu Mihailescu
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, 05:58
Daniel Klink
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.

Daniel Klink
Welcome guy(s) and thanks for your interest
@Soeren.. this thing will take a lot of time and patience so no speedbuild.
14. August 2019, 17:51
Roland Sachsenhofer
Just stumbled over that- most interesting! You will make a marvel out of this, that´s for sure- and I will follow for sure

Taking a seat. Glad this one is back on the bench

Hi James, and a warm welcome and thanky you for your kind words
MAsking ...

David Januska
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 2019, 11:30
Dave Flitton
Watching this one! I have no idea where you have been storing such large builds.
22. August 2019, 11:46
Sergej I
Call me utterly ignorant, but I never knew Piaggio was making planes aswel :D Looking good, this one :)
22. August 2019, 12:18
Daniel Klink
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 2019, 14:01
Daniel Klink
@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 2019, 14:02
David Januska
Nice image with the Me 109. I can't imagine how huge it is.
22. August 2019, 17:01
Daniel Klink
Hi DAvid.. It is really a big plane and the 109 looks like a bug or something on its wing :)

Hi Holger, jo extrem massig auch von der Form her 10 Tag noch, dann simmer quasi Inselnachbarn... ok SPiekeroog hängt noch dazwischen

Daniel Klink
Welcome Slavo, and nice you join the crowd
Did some Blackbasing, the Big italian Blackbird
25. August 2019, 18:23
Daniel Klink
Thank you James Now the usual marmorizing with filtered and softened insignia white
26. August 2019, 12:03
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 2019, 15:07
Daniel Klink
Do this, it is really easy and is a good preparation for the final coat.
26. August 2019, 17:03
Stephan Ryll
Looking very good Daniel
26. August 2019, 17:45
Beautiful work so far and interesting bird, count me in Daniel!
27. August 2019, 04:58
Daniel Klink
H STephan and Sascha.. Thank you mates and welcome.
How do you like the green color? First layer
28. August 2019, 12:25
Slavo Hazucha
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 2019, 12:52
Daniel Klink
Thank you Slavo YAp i added more layers. What Do you think? Does the color fit the original thing?
28. August 2019, 15:17
Roberto Rocat
Great progress, the paint job looks good from here!
28. August 2019, 17:28
Urban Gardini
The big bird is coming along great mate!
28. August 2019, 17:55
Daniel Klink
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 2019, 11:31
Stephan Ryll
Looking very good Daniel
1. September 2019, 15:44
Roland Sachsenhofer
Great Daniel!
1. September 2019, 15:58
Daniel Klink
Thank you Stephan and Roland much appreciated but I got stuck with the Props now
4. September 2019, 22:32
Slavo Hazucha
Looking really good, the shading seems great on the pictures & I really like the "zombie cheers grinder - look" exhaust flame suppressors ;)
5. September 2019, 06:10
Daniel Klink
Thank you Slavo and James! Feel honored that you like the paintwork????
6. September 2019, 15:47
Daniel Klink
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 2019, 18:10
Almost ready for take off. Another great bird to your record, Daniel !
8. September 2019, 18:24
Roland Sachsenhofer
Just great Daniel, in every aspect!
8. September 2019, 18:38
Slavo Hazucha
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 2019, 19:37
Bart Goesaert
that one is for sure in dire need off a plastic surgeon for a new nosejob... weird looking aircraft and beautiful work...
9. September 2019, 12:05
Daniel Klink
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

Sauberes Ding, Daniel!

24. September 2019, 18:48
Guy Rump
Yet another excellent build :)
24. September 2019, 19:30
Very good job: beautiful color, fine details in the cockpit!
25. September 2019, 16:12
Daniel Klink
Thank you Holger, Andy, Nikolaos, Stephan, Roland, Guy and Neuling
Better pics of the plane alone will follow
@Andy yes i have a heart for the forgotten and not so succesful Constructions, Glad you like it
