Brilliant! Incredible job considering what you started with. I love these old SMER kits and what you can do with them.

That's really amazing! I never imagined that a SMER kit could look that great....

I love the Fiat G.55, especially in Luftwaffe colours.

Best regards from Germany

Hey! I agree, looks very tidy build and great camouflage.

Those are Humbrol enamels, with various post-shading. Let me go home and I'll be able to tell you which numbers I used for the 74/75/76

Amazing!!
Those SMER kits can be quite rough out of the box.
You have done a brilliant job! One of the best G55s I have seen.
Vincent.

Grazie per il w.i.p. un lavoro straordinario, ho salvato le sequenze, dato che posseggo da anni il kit, da
quando era ancora Artiplast (sc. 1/50 non 1/48) e credo che presto vi metterò mano finalmente grazie a te.
