Special Hobby 1/32 Fiat G.50-II Freccia

By Angelo Picardo

This is the Special Hobby kit right out-of-box. I painted her with Tamiya acrylics, and Humbrol enamels. To try and replicate the worn paint on the fuselage, I first sprayed the fuselage Humbrol polished aluminium. Then I put a cote of Klear on before the camouflage colours. The intention was to peel the top colours away with tape to reveal the aluminium, but it didn't work. So I applied aluminium over the top with torn sponge and scourer pad to get the worn effect.

The kit is a beauty to assemble, even though it is a typical Special Hobby limited run kit.
