An SM79 in late war RAAF Beaufighter scheme, Foliage Green, white tail and leading edges, I can picture it now.  I wonder if my old old old Airfix kit is salvageable, not sure how many bits I lost, very tempted.

Back to the original topic though, imagine the Italian fleet in the pacific, perhaps even with Aquila.  Plenty of kits of the Littorios out there and a few of Italian heavy cruisers too.  Italian Hellcats, Avengers and Helldivers? Or marinised Fiats and Macchis in allied colours?  How would the CR42 have done against the Zero?
