  1. While looking through the many excellent entries into this deservedly popular GB I noticed that there was something missing, that being the omission of anything built in Italy. Now with Italy being one of the big players in WWII I felt that something needed to be done to rectify this so I started to have a look around as to what is available, and to be honest its not a huge number of designs to choose from. Plenty of single engines aircraft and a fair amount of tri-motors but not a lot of twin engined aircraft, we have some fairly old (but still very buildable) kits from Italeri in the form of the Fiat Br.20 and Caproni Ca.311 and 315 and I was just about to click on one of these when I stumbled upon a much more modern kit of the Caproni Ca.311 by Special Hobby which comes with etched brass, resin pieces such as the engines and most importantly a mask set for all that glazing! And all of this came for the princely sum of £22 delivered, so a couple of clicks later one on was on it's way to Minion towers. So lets have a look shall we. Starting with the very nice box art; The contents of the box, you can see the bag of resin with the engines in it, the balck coloured mask set and the very nice looking decal sheet. And part of the reason for the mask set, the extensive glazing which Special Hobby have dealt with very cleverly by producing the fuselage halves in clear plastic; The kit comes with 3 schemes, 2 of which are in a very tight mottle which scares the hell out me in 1/72 and the other in a much simpler scheme with larger mottled areas and can be seen in the picture below; Even that one gives me reservations as I struggle with this kind of thing in 1/48 never mind 1/72! I will have a go at one of those though and if it is beyond me I will cobble some marking together for one flown in the solid green over grey scheme that comes in the Italeri kit. I probably won't start this one for a little while as I want to get Mabel's Mossie closer to the finish line first and there's also the Baby Boomers GB which I have committed to that I need to decide what to build for, that may also end up being a WWII era twin. Thanks for looking in and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
