FIAT BR.20 Cicogna, 1/48 - SO48068

Introduced in 1936 this Italian twin-engine bomber was one of the most advanced of its kind. The BR.20 was first used in both the Spanish Civil War and the Sino-Japanese war where its speed rendered it virtually immune to the fighters of the time. The Br.20 was also employed over England where it bombed the cities of Ramsgate, Harwich, Great Yarmouth and Ipswich sustaining only five losses throughout the campaign. The bomber was also successfully deployed over the Balkans, the Soviet Union and North Africa.

Markings for four Regia Aeronautica planes:
1. Regia Aeronautica: 9-5 of 9° Squadriglia, 25° Gruppo, 7° Stormo; Cameri, Feb. 1941.
2. Regia Aeronautica: 5-3 of 5° Squadriglia, La Malledeta, circa 1940
3. Regia Aeronautica: 5-6 of 5° Squadriglia, 43° Gruppo, 13° Stormo, Lonate, 1936.

IMAM (Romeo) Ro 57 bis, 1/48 - 48075

LIMITED EDITION

This aeroplane was designed in 1939 and remained in the prototype stage for a long time, despite the aeroplanes good performance in test flights.

Fiat G.50 Finnish Version, 1/48 - 48086

LIMITED EDITION

The Fiat G.50 is a Classic WWII Fighter. The plane was first designed in 1937 and entered service with the Regia Aeronautica in 1939 over the skies of Spain. It was the first all metal monoplane fighter to enter service with the Regia Aeronautica. Although not as quick or maneuverable as the Mc.200, its performance was nonetheless comparable to that of the Hawker Hurricane. In service with the Finnish Air Force the Fiat G.50 achieved legendary status, many Finnish aces used the type at one time or another and Oiva 'Oippa' Tuominen scored the majority of his 44 kills with the G.50.

This kit is a limited-run airframe with finely engraved panel lines, detailed cockpit, optional rudder/vertical stabilizers, optional ski or wheeled undercarriage, optional spinners, and injection-molded windscreen. Also includes resin parts (multi-part radial engine, cowling and additional details) photo-etch parts (ignition harness, instrument panel, seatbelts and other fine bits) plus film instruments. NOTE: this kit also comes with fully glazed canopy to build early Fiat G.50 Serie I and II aircraft. Can build any Fiat G.50 with this kit. One of the best kits on offer by Special Hobby.

Decals and color painting reference for nine (9) Ilmavoimat schemes: FA-25, 2/LeLv 26 (x2); FA-1, 2/LLv 26 (x4); FA-33, LLv 26 (x3).

Fiat G.55A, Post-War Version 1/48 - 48087

LIMITED EDITION

The G.55's increasing popularity amongst modelers and aviation enthusiast alike is a direct result of its increased coverage and exposure by modelers and aviation historians. Often forgotten in the past, the G.55 was a first-rate singe seat fighter with performance comparable to the best Allied fighters of the time. In combat over Europe, the G.55 maintained its own against overwhelming odds. Series production was also considered by the Germans who soon discovered the G.55 was the only Axis fighter available that could accept the new powerful DB.603 (1,800 hp) engine (a design limitation of the Bf.109). However, like so many excellent Italian WWII war programs the G.55 was built in too few numbers. The Fiat G.55 established itself as a premier fighter and was built in several variants and continued to be built after the war with purchase orders from Argentina, Syria and Egypt.

This is the post-war version of this excellent kit, referred to as the Fiat G.55A. The Fiat G.55A was armed with 4 x 12 mm machine guns. The Argentinean’s purchased 10 overhauled G.55s and 35 new aircraft plus 15 two-seaters and were equipped with VHF radios. The planes continued service until the mid-1950s. The Syrians purchased 12 single-seaters and 1 two seater. Increasing tensions with Israel, the Egyptians purchased 39 new planes and two two-seaters.

Kit has recessed panel lines, highly detailed cockpit, resin parts (gunsight, wing gun barrels, and optional upper cowling without gun troughs), photo-etch parts (instrument panel, seatbelts, radiator faces, cockpit enhancements and additional details), film instruments, and injection-molded canopy. Decals and painting guide for 3 aircraft: 5th Squadron, Royal Egyptian Air Force, December 1948; MM91167/55, Scuola Caccia, Aeronautica Militare Italiana, 1947 and C-26, Regimiento No 2 de Casa, Fuerza Aérea Argentina, 1949.

Fiat G.55 Sottoserie 0, 1/48 - 48066

The G.55 was the equivalent of the Mustang, Spitfire and Focke-Wulf 190. Fast, heavily armed and highly maneuverable, the plane was effective against Allied bombers. Series production was also considered by the Germans who soon discovered that the G.55 was the only Axis fighter available that could accept the new powerful DB.603 (1,800 hp) engine (a design limitation of the Bf.109). However, like so many excellent Italian war programs the G.55 was built in too few numbers. The Fiat G.55 established itself as a premier fighter and was built in several variants and continued to be built after the war with purchase orders from Argentina, Syria and Egypt.

The Sotttoserie 0 (pre-series) aircraft were armed with one 20mmm cannon and four 0.5 calibre machine guns. About 30 examples of these powerful preseries aircraft were manufactured and delivered to the Regia Aeronautica and the Aeronautica Nazionale Republicana. These planes took part in the air battles to defend Rome.

Comes with 85 medium grey injection molded parts on four frames, includes injection molded clear parts on one frame, resin and photo etch parts and decals for three aircraft plus four pages with parts plan, history, build instructions and painting/decal diagrams.

Piaggio P.108B Serie II, 1/72 - 72035

This advanced four engined strategic bomber was the only one of its type placed into production by the Axis powers in WWII. Produced in sufficient numbers, this bomber could have tilted the balance of air power in the Mediterranean. Heavily armed and with a good operational range, the P.108 would strike deep into the Mediterranean hitting Girbraltar and Algeria.

This kit, P.108B Serie II (Flying Machines P.108B Serie I) , comes with 85 medium grey injection moulded parts on four frames, 13 injection moulded clear parts on one frame, 33 resin parts and decals for two aircraft plus four pages with parts plan, history, build instructions and painting/decal diagrams.

Piaggio P.108A Artigliere w/ 102mm/40 Anti-Ship Canon, 1/72 - 72065

Designed and built in 1939, the Piaggio P.108 was one of the most advanced heavy bombers of WWII featuring remote controlled gun turrets, a heavy bomb load, and a good operational range striking deep into the Mediterranean; only too few aircraft were constructed due to a chronic shortage of raw materials.

The P.108A was a variant of the original strategic bomber and was equipped with a 102mm canon for anti-shipping work. The gun was capable of firing 20 rounds per minute and was feed by an automatic loader.

This kit comes with finely engraved recessed panel lines and beautifully furnished PE sets and resin parts. Decals for one Luftwaffe P.108A.

Although used in relatively small numbers by the Regia Aeronautica the Re.2000 was quite likely the best of the R-Programme fighters and even out flying the Bf.109E. The Re.2000 was exported in fairly large numbers to Sweden and Hungary. Yugoslavia, Spain, Switzerland and Finland all began negotiations to acquire the plane but these orders were automatically canceled when Italy went to war. Hungary also built a number of Re.2000s under license in which the Piaggio radial engine was substituted with the Manfred Weiss WM K-14 (Gnome-Rhône 14K Mistral Major radial) and hence the change in name to Mavag Heja.

This kit comes with finely engraved recessed panel lines and PE sets and resin parts. Comes with a detailed cockpit interior and decals for Hungarian Fighters.
