    Very nice SH kit with plenty of details, did some scratchbuild on the wing gunbay, painted with alclad white aluminium.
    I decided to go with non camo Iraqi one cause it shows nice lines of this plane although it's quite weird.
    It's my first post here, hope you like it...

    Fantastic build! I have this one in the stash - I plan to do the Iraqi variant too. Hope mine comes out even half as good as yours. Where did you get the info on the wing gun bays - I'm having a really hard time finding references for the Ba65.

    Thanks you for your comments, I'm glad you like her.
    I found my reference in this book Ali d'Italia 7: Breda Ba 65. There are also drawings included so I could work on a part of the wing construction..
    A few pics of it in progress

    Very nice model. One simple thing that I find adds to the presentation is to flatten the tires slightly to add "weight" to the subject.
