IMAM (Romeo) Ro57 bis

Post by Icepol » Thu Sep 15, 2022 3:04 am

Hello everyone again !!
Today I present my new work on a plane that has always fascinated me for its clean and tapered lines, the Ro 57!
The kit is the special hobby in 48 and unfortunately nothing aftermarket, even if in the box there is a nice plate of photoengraving.

Image

As my custom, the kit will be heavily modified and for this project I will use the nomenclatore and the use and maintenance booklet.

I would like to leave out the tedious part of the assembly and instead focus on the changes I would like to make....soon some pictures of the works ....
stay tuned! :wave:

Bye!
Today I present some photos on the changes I am making to the model.
My aim is to open the engine compartment and upgrade the driver's cockpit

Let's start with the cockpit:

the seat proposed by the kit must be modified as indicated in the manual nomenclatore

The aircraft has a large window in the lower fuselage that shows everything inside so you have to arm yourself with patience and detail the cockpit floor, the rear part of the instrument panel and recreate the tubular structure of the frame.

In addition, the tank and the weapons compartment that are fixed between the front truss should also be recreated ... even here the use of the momenclatore is essential.

Rear instrument panel:

Now the final photos with all the inserts and colored elements ... the tank has been completely self-built in scratch and the weapons have been modified

Ok that's all for today, the next series of photos will cover the engine and .... much more!

In all the years, we don't have a single build of this plane in the Gallery despite selling many of these kits! Great subject. You're a master of detail.
