IMAM (Romeo) Ro.37bis [1/48] Special Hobby

Post by Rod The Fixer » Sun Aug 11, 2019 4:02 am

Glad to see the forum back up again... :thumbup:

Hi Mates,
I started to assemble this IMAM Ro.37 bis Special Hobby kit:

Image

The kit is composed by six sprues of grey styrene and one of clear canopy parts,
the styrene items are accompanied by resin and photo-etched details.
The decal sheet offers markings for four eye-catching schemes which portrays machines in service almost throughout the world.

Image

Image

The IMAM Ro.37 was a reconnaissance and observation biplanes and I'd like to do the airplane with the camouflage and markings of the Aviazione Cobelligerante Italiana (Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force), this being one of the last Ro.37s to see active duty.
(S/No.MM.10889, 'Cocco Bello', Aviazione Cobelligerante Italiana, October 1943)

First steps in cockpit assembling:

I had to remove the central upright because the upper wing was too low, and then I applied a coat of primer.

Having built a few Special Hobby kits I know they are difficult. You have done a brilliant job. Great work.
