78th Squadriglia HD1 trio (Valom 1/144)
« on: May 29, 2018, 06:47:58 PM »
Hallo friends,
Here is a 1/144 (Valom kits) Hanriot trio, dedicated to the Italian 78th Squadriglia.
I decided not to rig them because my thick fingers are too clumsy to manage the wires around the struts and the risk was to break things, so here they are, I know they're imperfect but I think all in all the overall effect is not that bad!

Here they are on the ground:





Lt.Mario Fucini's 12 skulls
Autumn 1918










Sgt. Guido Nardini's little devil
Summer 1917









Sgt. Antonio Chiri's black tail
Autumn 1918








(sorry for this photo out of focus...)

Thanks for watching

Antonio

Thanks Cam...
I have all their collection, but they're too hard to build!!!
:-D

Thanks Haemon, Fucini's livery was made with a sponge brush (so they say...)  I think WW2 planes had different shades, although I'm not an expert of that historical period... maybe I'm totally wrong! :-P

Those are some magnificent little gems!

It's a real treat to see your Italian W.W. I aircraft!
