Today arranging my old stuff, I've come in my hands my older aircraft models that I built many years ago when I was a boy.
I was always fond of military history; usually I write in other rooms of the forum but I decided to show you some examples that I consider interesting, non for the capacity of realization, but for the type of subject involved.
Below are two examples of Savoia Marchetti S79 "Sparviero (Sparrowhawk)", dubbed by British pilots and sailors "Damned Hunchback " for the characteristic dorsal hump that houses the machine-gun.
It has had an interesting history: born in the 30s as a civil plane for fast airlines and competitions, it was converted for military use in WW2 period, first as a bomber, but with poor results, subsequently as a torpedo bomber, and in this configuration proved very effective because of its maneuverability and stability, soon he became a legendary aircraft in the history of 'the Italian Air Force and also very loved by crews because thanks to the reliability of three engines and its ruggedness often managed to go home even with severe damage.
These examples were made from old kits 1:72 scale of the 70s, but modified and improved with details and accessories reconstructed by hand (ex:Alfa Romeo engine, Whitehead torpedo, antennas, generators, etc ..)
As I said, nothing special but I was still very young and the basic models were not very good, however the subject is not very common.
Thanks for looking
