AerMacchi C.202-205 Folgore-Veltro - HB0078
Warpaint Series No 78
With the introduction into service of the Macchi C.202 Folgore and the C.205
Veltro the Regia Aeronautica had caught up with the major combatants of WWII.
The C.202 and C.205 are considered by many to be the most elegant fighters ever
produced, and proved to be excellent dogfighters possessing superb speed
and maneuverability. While the C.202 was widely employed within the Italian air
force during the two years of combat between its introduction in July 1941 and
Italy’s Armistice of 8 September 1943, the C.205 saw limited service after its
introduction. It was to become a protagonist once more in Northern Italy serving
with the ANR. Apart from their pleasing aesthetic features, these fighters
provide modelers with a wide choice of color schemes and markings, and this
volume catalogs available kits, accessories and decals. Illustrated with 60
full color profiles, 57 b/w photos and unique 1/72nd scale plans. War Paint
Series No 78; Caruana; 38 pages.
Fiat G.91 - HB0049 Warpaint Series No 49
Richard J. Caruana. Developed in the early 1950s to participate in the NATO tender
for a lightweight fighter, the G.91 was designed by Giuseppe Gabrielli (who also
designed the Fiat G.55), and drew his inspiration from the F-86 Sabre, then
produced under license by FIAT. While there was no follow-up to the NATO tender
(won, as it would turn out, by the G.91), the aircraft nevertheless went into
production and was ordered by both the Aeronautica Militare Italiana and the
Luftwaffe; some G.91s were later ceded by Germany (reluctunatly) to the
Portuguese air force and it was here that they first saw action during
operations in Angola. With the Aeronautica Militare Italiana the G.91 had a long
career with both operative squadrons and the country’s aerobatic team, the
Frecce Tricolori. The last planes were withdrawn from service in 1992. Illustrated with 50+ color photos
+ 30+ color profiles; 36 pages.
