As much as I can, I always try to link my models to a specific event or human being. In early nineties, during a business trip, I visited a customer in Vicenza (Italy) and when I met the owner, I saw on the wall behind him a number of photos and post referring to 4 Stormo (wing) which existed during WW2 and still exist now. I was meeting Mr. Orlando Mandolini, a seven victories ace during WW2. By that time, I made for him a model of the Fiat Cr-32 fighter he flew in the early months of WW2, see first picture. More then thirty years later, when I decided to build a Macchi C-202 I decided to try to replicate in North Africa. Here are some pictures:
Never did an helicopter model in my modeller life (besides one specifically made for my grandson to play with) until one day, during the first lock-down, I was intrigued by the first picture below. So I started looking around for suitable kit and the best I found was the Dragon UH-1N in 1:35. But there are many important differences between the two subjects: 1) Internal back arrangement is totally different 2) Back doors are different 3) No radome on the roof 4) No winch and several other different details More to follow.

Hello friends! Here is my work finished in July/2019, I hope you like it. Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer Italeri - Nr. 6531 - 1:35 Released: 2016 | Rebox (Updated/New parts) In resume: with upgraded moulds but with some deficiencies, principally tracks which is usefull for a Panzer 38 (t) not for this Hetzer, you need too much work in order to adjust them and put the wheels, instructions quite confused, in some cases inverted and the plastic is thin but can be handled well. Figures coming of Academy kit VERSION: 65th Infantry Division, Bologna (Italy), February 1945 Regards! Rodolfo
