Breda Ba 65, Rareplane (vaccu) 1/72

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Second Italian bird from archive shelf for today - Breda Ba 65. Wiki tells about her things like that:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breda_Ba.65

This is vacu kit by Rareplane, I made it about 20 years ago.

The airplane was a ground attack machine, which was rather succesfull - 218 build (for pre-war time it was not few) and exported to some countries.

Here markings are from 101 Sq, 5 Stormo, Regia Aeronautica from Autumn 1939 - spring 1940 period. Decals from drawer.

Now there is a kit available (or not?) by Azur.

Regards and comments welcome

Jerzy-Wojtek

Nice build of a rarely seen aircraft, the italians did some rather odd looking planes, like the neat canopy braces

Thank you Gentelmen for comments :) Appreciated. I like Italian design in WWII airplanes, still some of them are yet to be photographed and some are still in stash. Perhaps the most bizzare one my stash (if Italians) is Savoia SM-74 (vacu 1/72 by Broplan) - very unusual airplane

Thank you Gents :) - for comments and for encouraging me to do Savoia 74. I am now doing WWII light de Havillands (recently I did DH 90 out of scratch, DH 84 is under construction (also scratch), two Tiger Moths are close to be finished, Gipsy Moth is on a half way - I want to do Fox Moth also (scratch conversion from Tiger Moth). Next I've gathered documentation for 3 or 4 from Hawker Hart family (Hart or Nisr, Audax, Hector and perhaps Hart trainer) I was thinking also on B24 as Liberator II and Italeri Sunderland... - the Italians have to wait a bit, unfortunately. It looks that next year.

cheers
