    OK, somewhere between building a deck, putting a 4x4 back together, training a puppy, sorting out my ex/daughter and working my ass off to lose 20kg by Christmas... I'm going to enter the group build.

    The main reason for this is that I have an SM79 and 3 CR42's that I'd love to start, and need the push. All 1/72, all Italeri funnily enough! Wasn't planned, that's just the way it worked out.

    So now, as I know very little of the MTO, and much much less about the Italian air force (See, don't even know the proper name!:oops:)... I need a bit of help...

    Is there any pages with info on Italian squads, written in english, that I can refer to? I'm honestly not even sure what I'm going to do with the three, but if I can't find anything, I'll just do them straight OOB as both kits have MTO decal options... I've done the usual google/wiki searches, but not really found much.

    First problem though... finish off the P40 that I started 6 months ago and am yet to finish :shock:

    Yep, come October, I may have 3 opened boxes. And that's it. :lol:

    Thanks kgambit.

    I had found the Stormo! website, but hadn't yet had a good look through.

    STORMO! Color Guide
    -This is a super-helpful page.

    parsifal - some great reading and links hidden in there too! Thanks guys!
