Hi Davide,

A simple search on Google should get you some leads, including this one to the example at Vigna di Valle: http://www.minniti.info/main/php/0419.php

Kind regards,

Peter

there is an excellent book from Stato Maggiore of A.M.I. http://media.aeronautica.difesa.it/aeronautica/catalogo/zoom_img.asp?cod_cat=1&cod_lin=1&cod_ctg=6&cod_pro=45
That book is one of the beautifulst works in aeronautics, indispensable for the exact realization of Italian airplane of period 1915-1920. Between the authors of the same there is Paolo Varriale, one of more notices associates IPMS-Italy,
If you start from the 1//48 kit of Special Hobby, you can made the S.4703 aircraft of lieutenant Fulco Ruffo of Calabria, used in May 1917. Like on all its personal airplane, also this aircraft has in fuselage the insignia of this ace (achieved 20 victories recognized during the war) constituted from a black skull with two intercrossed shinbones, than it is here over the national national marking. In the sheet decals this coat of arms is not reproduced with exactitude just to 100% being little larger of the due, while for the standards of nationality on the advanced wings the sheet gives to the nationals marking type Bleriot and to the S in tail the number matriculation of the aircraft lacks. You may follow the profile n.49 of "Gli assi dell’aviazione italiana nella grande guerra".
if you want you can see my article on SPAD VII (also in english) form 1/48 kit o f Special Hobby at web site http://www.modellistika.it/Articoli/SPAD_VII/SPAD_VII.html
