Savoia Pomilio SP3 - 1/48
« on: March 31, 2020, 09:06:05 PM »

I chose to make the model of the Savoia Pomilio SP3 engaged on the war front in 1917.




Therefore the heraldry of this plane had to be reproduced.




soon,

I begin with the construction of the cell with the cockpit and the machine gunner housing.






The next step will be the creation of the upper fairing of the cockpit and the motor.

As Italian I'm always happy to see someone to decide to build one of our planes.
In this case, one of the most difficult to build.
So, I will follow your work.
I see that the printed parts are near to the real one, the only things missed are the serial
numbers on the two inner sides of the external fins and the two on the central one.
Not difficult to draw before assembling.
Cheers,
Roberto

You're absolutely right, I forgot about it. Grazie

You guys and gals want to watch a real paper model master...this is the feed to watch!  This is such a neat plane and it's, again, amazingly rendered.

Amazing layout and printing on these card models, but being able to cut, fold and assemble them into anything resembling an airplane is a skill set beyond my dexterity and patience. I am in awe of the talent and looking forward to each step as you present it.

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

A really cool starting!
As a plastic modeller, sometimes I used printed paper parts from this kind of kits, for example dashboards, because they are better
looking than my plastic parts!
I really enjoy your build.
