Savoia Marchetti SM.82 Marsupiale 1/72 - 1270

One of the great aircraft of WWII. This aircraft's brilliant career began in 1939 when it set two world records. The first was a closed-circuit distance record, over 8,000 miles (12,874km) non-stop. The second was a speed record over 6,250 miles (10,000 km) at 150 mph (241 km/h). The SM.82 was the first aircraft in the world designed and built as a military transport aircraft. It was a complete project involving both the Italian Army and Air Force, as well as the national airline. As well as payload considerations, armament and bomb loads were also designed into the aircraft. Capable of carrying 82 paratroopers, the SM.82 could also carry a Fiat CR.42 fighter and did so, re-supplying the East African colonies with 50 fighters. Flying the longest combat flight to date, on October 19 1940 four SM.82's bombed the Manama oil refineries in Bahrain with a total of 400 X 15 kilogram (13,200 lbs) incendiary bombs. The planes flew 4,200 kilometers in 15 hours and 30 minutes with no losses. The plane also flew long-range raids to Alexandria and Girbraltar. Its' reputation was such that the Luftwaffe ordered 300 and used them extensively on all fronts.

Kit features recessed panel lines, detailed cockpit and fuselage interior with bomb bay and bombs, separately molded bomb bay doors, fuselage loading doors, flaps, elevators and rudder. Also includes photographic reference manual with history, technical details and drawings, color walkaround photos (Vigna di Valle) and color profiles.

When Italy entered WWII, 162 BR.20s were operational and were first used against France, then Great Britain (from bases in Belgium), Greece, Malta, Crete and also in Russian. Steadily replaced by the more modern S.79 and Cant.Z.1007, the BR.20 had by the time the armistice, all but disappeared, yet a remaining few continued to serve with the Luftwaffe.
