New 1/72 Caproni Ca 310

Looks like Azur/Special Hobby will be releasing a 1/72 Caproni Ca 310. The box top shows exportmarkings but I'm not sure what country it is.

Here is the link from Hyperscale.

The colours of the aircraft are the Peruvian Air force.
In 1939 the Cuerpo Aeronautico del Peru bought 16 Caproni Ca. 310 light bombers; they were shipped to Lima, assembled at Las Palmas and assigned to the XI Squadron where the Libeccios saw action during the war against Ecuador in 1941. After the war they were transferred to the 28 Training Squadron.
