    Somehow that just doesn't seem right.

    Hmmm, maybe I'll have to up the ante and consider doing a second kit. How about a Caproni Ca.311?

    LOL Yeah she's kind of an ugly duckling at that. Haven't decided yet if I am going to do the Ca.311, a Sm 79 or possibly a Fiat G.50 (the open cockpit version).

    I have been looking for an Italian bi- plane. All I have found is a couple of German ones.

    Great pic!

    I'd love to do an Italian one, but there is no way in heck I could do the camo.

    We'll see how the cockpit work goes on the Hs-126 first. If it goes faster than I think, maybe I'll be able to do another kit.

    GO THE CAPRONI!!! Ok, she's no beauty, but what a great variety of aircraft will be in the build!

    Yep, it'd be nice to have more Italian Jobs (!) in the GB. Kits in 1/48th scale are a bit thin on the ground, al;though I was considering a CR42 myself. I doubt if I'll have time for the research and build though. I had thought of doing the Mc202, in 1/32nd scale, from 21st Century Toys, but they've all disapperared from the UK shelves now.

    Strange, the Macchi was the one which didn't seem to move, and was still around when the other kits started to dry up. Then - poof! Gone, never to be seen again! I wanted to get their JU87 too, which was my first choice for this GB, but you've got more chance of finding Hitler's dog!!

    I have a Classic Airframes CR.42 in the stash, there is one paint option for a training bird based in Italy 1942, dark green over grey with a white band on the fuselage. Or the nightfighter scheme is straigtforward. A lot easier than that 4 colour camo scheme!
