    Hi everybody, this is my first post on this forum, so firstly I briefly introduce myself.
    I'm Italian and live in Milan.
    I’m sixty and I retired from business two years ago, so now I some time to dedicate to my hobbies.
    My interest is in history and WW2 aviation (mostly).
    My most recent models were dedicated to Italian subjects, here following a couple of them.
    The first one is a Fiat G 55 fighter obtained form the Pacific Coast Model in 1:32 scale
    The insigna are those of the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana in 1944.

    The second is a Sabre (Canadair CL 13) obained from the Kinetic kit, still in 1:32

    By the way, the main reason for this post concern the magnificent Spitfire Mk IX just released by Tamiya in 1:32 scale.
    I just purchased it and, in order to make it a little different, I’m considering to leave the gun bays open and show the 20 mm Hispano cannons .
    Does anybody have a detailed picture or a drawing of this cannon? I will appreciate very much if he can share it with me.
    Many thanks in advance and apologize for my bad English
    Alberto
