  1. Hello, This is the second of aircraft of my AMI collection following the F-104G model. I always thought about FIAT G.91 as if it was a Cinquecento in the aircraft industry. Small, versatile, agile aircraft well serving its role. And of course Gina was a great success of Italian aircraft industry in the post WWII era. The aircraft represents 103° Gruppo, 2° Stormo based at Treviso-Sant'Angelo in the 70s. The aerodrome is not used for military purposes anymore. The Meng kit is a little simplistic, while having perfect fit throughout so could be assembled very quickly. I read that it has some geometry inaccuracies. I do not remember exactly what is particularly wrong though. To improve the model I used Pavla cockpit set that was originally intended for Revell kit. The set was a little too small for the space available within the fuselage so fitting it properly required some beams added inside. I also went forward with minor improvements and drilled through side camera windows which I later sealed with Krystal Klear. Landing lights and navigation lights on wing tips are also made with drops of Krystal Klear. Decals are from Xtradecal set. The kit only provides a Frecce Tricolori option for AMI aircraft. However the quality of Meng decals looked suspicious so I decided to do a camo version to accompany my F-104 in the same colours. To have Italian insignia colours conforming to the F-104 I used Sky Decals roundels here. The only thing I was not able to fully get clear for myself - whether AMI used Matra rocket pods or not really. Seems that these pods were standard for NATO air forces but whether these could be used on AMI Ginas - that is a question for me. Anyway I decided to put Reskit Matra pods to make the model look armed. Group photo with F-104 as a bonus: Thanks for looking and best wishes! Dennis
