Kit: Karaya (1:48)
Enclosed , you'll find some in progress shots of my 1/48 Ansaldo Balilla
(Karaya). The model is really superb and it's a resin model that could be
build as an injection molded one.
Kit: Eduard (1:72)
Enclosed are some pictures from an Eduard 1/72 DH2 I've resisted to smash
after an hair dry session (to accelerate the varnish drying
process,AVOID!!!). Just notice how the rigging induce some particular
stress on the plastic ;-)

Kit: Choroszki Modelbud (1:72)
Here is a SVA 5 (1/72 model from Choroszki Modelbud) painted in the wellknown
italian scheme. Some of the photos are a little bit fuzzy and I'll try to
provide better shots.
Eduard 1/72 Spad XIII. It's really a pleasure to built it, the fit is almost
Kit: MAC (1:72)
Enclosed you'll find some pictures of a recently completed Spad VII from MAC
Distribution (1/72). The Guynemer markings come from the Carpena decal sheet
devoted to the "Escadrille des Cigognes". I've followed the painting
instructions depicted on this decal sheet mentioning two colors for the front
area: Olive green (Hu 155) on the metal lic parts and Buff (Hu 94) under the
cockpit , the rest of the airplane being Doped linen. The MAC model suffers
from injection problems (at least mine....) on the wings, otherwise the detail
is very good.
Kit: Special Hobby (1:48)
Enclosed are some pictures of a Special Hobby 1/48 Spad 7 from Ruffo di
Calabria (91a Squadriglia) . I've done minor correction to the model (the
starboard panel near the cockpit should be removed ), but there is other
mistakes that I left uncorrected (probably I'll try to fix them on another
model): the cockpit aperture does not have the correct asymetrical shape
(in the special hobby model it looks like a Sopwith Pup...). The major flaw
is the position of the exhaust pipes and the shape of the upper cowling
area (difficult to fix)
Anayway the fit is almost excellent and the resin cockpit is really beautiful.
