Hi all,
I make seaplanes and flyingboats in 1/144 scale in resin (garage kits) of aircraft that are not available in this scale.
I currently have the Italian Ro.43/44 allready available (amongst others).
What I am after are nice references for Italian seaplanes and flying boats of the 1935-1945 period. I have ordered some of the Ali' Italia books but they are yet to arrive.
Can anyone point me to others that have nice colour profiles and pictures and drawings? Hopefully with a little English as well?

regards
Peter

Hi Peter,
The ADI reference has got a load of color profiles and photographs. Its likely the best source for Italian Schnedier Trophy seaplane racers.

Thanks for the lead.
My Ali' Italia books have arrived and are superb!
I now have the Schneider trophy one, Z-501, Ro 43/44 and Z-506.
I wonder if they will do a Fiat RS-14 or any of the Caponi seaplanes?

Peter

Hi Peter,
I do believe ADI covered the Fiat RS.14 under their Mini Series. You don't see much about the Caproni seaplanes, however the Ca.316 was a beautiful plane, although it didn't enter service.
