Nice Builds...

Its been while since I was on this forum :oops: Fabrizio sent me 8 kits to review for Scale Aircraft Modeller Int.. Only five kits made it: 2 Aerfers, SM.1019, Ro.63 and CNA PM.1. All were tough builds apart from the CNA PM.1, which was the best of the bunch. The other three (RE.2006, FC.12 and Ro....

When You Communicate Again With Phillppe...

The molds for sure would have probably gone back to someone like Philippe Martin. I should shot him an email if he knows exactly what happened to the molds. The inventory to distributors and local shops who would have known Fabrizio. ...Tell him for me am down on hands & knees begging he'd get the ...

Do Hope That Was The Case...

Jean posted this a little while ago: https://stormomagazine.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1266 As to the molds and remaining stock apparently it was sold off, I don't know to whom but likely a distributor that may have had a working relationship with Fabrizio. ...More often than not from what I'd...

SEM Model Effectively Is Out Of Business

A bit late in the day admittedly, but I have tried to find out if anyone has put up a notice about the fate of SEM Models, whose products have appeared on this website quite a bit. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235067301-sem-model-shut-down-founder-fabrizio-catalano-has-passe...

Muito Obrigado...

That's a nice build. A 90 degree angle of 66-4 on the model would work the best but I can still work with this photo and the plans you provided. The 66-4 in the profile doesn't look right, and is different than the 66-4 on the model e.g., shape, the thickness of the 6s and 4 are different, assuming...

Can't Find That Photo On Internet...

That's easy enough to do. I'll get to when you start building. Do you have a photo of 66-4, often red appears very dark in orthochromatic film but you can still tell the difference between it and black. Gotta love Gavin Newsom, says he has no more tolerance for climate change deniers but asks Trump...

Here's The Color Guide...

What exactly is missing, maybe I can make them for you - I'll need to see the color guide that comes with the kit. Did you manage to make it through the fires? I thought I heard El Dorado got hit hard. https://i.postimg.cc/Ss6z4Jrp/IMG-20200916-0001.jpg All I need are the "66-4" fuselage codes, lik...

No decals?
BroPlan CANT Z.506C kit didn't have them either, AUT.18 & SM.95 kits do, latter post-war civil airliner verson.

BroPlan MS-76 Caproni Ca.111 Pre-Preview

Unsealed the BroPlan MS-76 Caproni Ca.111 kit this AM, looks inviting, NO decals despite "box art" paper & painting instructions depicting "66-4" a 66° Squadriglia aircraft presumably during the Second Italo-Ethopian War. Will check whether have water decal sheets squadriglia sets for any Ca.111 if ...

Oh My...

The style of unit codes is very distinctive. I'd like to portray 278-1 as seen in the Osprey torpedo-bomber book. Is there a source for unit code numbers? Richard I don't think there's an aftermarket sheet for the 1/48 S.79. The problem with all 1/48 bombers (not just the RA) is the sheer size of t...

Fabulous Modeling Work...

Stukas & Gustav Bf-109Gs for decades have been perennial likes of mine but decided not to build any in Italian liveries preferring instead to build those in stock in Luftwaffe including the horrid though sentimenally favored 1957-vintage Airfix Of America Ju-87, Lindberg's 1955-vintage 1/48th kit li...

There was only a single prototype that flew on August 1940 which is the one in the photo. ...To bad the BroPlan kit didn't have the decals, may had provided painting info as well. BroPlan CANT Z.1007 Asso build going quite well, may be done by the 12th. Even with A/C going can't do much building, 1...
