Italian Models

Ansaldo SVA 5

This modell is basically out of the Spin resin kit. The parts supplied with this kit have been of very fine quality. Regardeless of this some modifications have been done. The Cockpit got some additional detailing and the fuselage was covered with real veneer. I usually apply birchwood veneer. The mahogonny shade was realized with e few layers of shellack. This particular aircraft took part on the famous ride to Vienna in mid August 1918, with Gabriele d`Annunzio. The insignias are of the 87th squadron "La Serrenissima"
