    In the early 70, the italian company Polistil, a toy factory, made a few model kits in 1:72. Were not so accurate and went out of production soon.
    I had a lot of fun trying to improve this obsolete kit: not sure to have had success... :mrgreen:

    This is the personal aircraft of Sgt. Ancillotti, pilot of the Aviazione nazionale repubblicana (the fascist army, allied with germans, after the italian armistice).

    'Fasci' on wings were not specular on the A.N.R.'s G55
