Fantastic model! I’m very attached to such strange flying machines, and water aircraft, and the thirties, and the Spanish Civil War period. Great collection.

Those machine gun pits on the outboard wings must have been a bit awkward to sit in during patrols!

They could crawl through the wing into the fuselage.

Thank you very much for comments.  Currently there is Dora Wings kit of early variant of SM-55, much more available then this Delta-2 short run (and much nicer to work with, I supouse). The SM 55A is announced also by Dora, and this variant was still in service in Romania during WWII - I am considering to do the second SM-55 with Romanian crosses this time...
