    Hi everybody,
    do you know if I can find on the market any kit in 1:32 scale for the Hispano Suiza 20 mm cannon installed on wings of several WW2 aircrafts?
    I searched the main producers I know (Aires, Eduard) and on the web but I found nothing.
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Alberto

    You might try Quickboost products. Pavla makes them in 1/72 and Cutting Edge makes them in 1/48 but I don't recall seeing them in 1/32. Sorry I can't be more help.

    I just checked Quickboost - sorry no luck there. They have a few different gun barrels but not the Hispano Suizas.

    If you won't find any of the rasin sets you can make it yourself.A cannon of the scale shouldn't be a big problem.

    Good work Dwight; that's the reference I used when I made the cannon for my Spit XIV. Also, I think it was Peter (Ozhawk) who recently posted soem execellent material on the cannon BFM, which should help. As Wojtek stated, the cannon, being mainly tubular with a few projections, is fairly simple to make in 1/32nd scale.
