NEWS: Italeri 1/35 SLC 200 "Maiale" by Jose Lucero

Post by Editor » Mon Dec 26, 2011 1:23 pm

It is with great pleasure I present the following article on Stormo and the first article on the Regia Marina (Xª Flottiglia MAS). Jose Lucero brings us 17 pics of his magnificent S.L.C 200 and does homage to a group of WWII special forces whose exploits were as daring as they were spectacular. Included in this article is a video at the end of article.

What an excellent model!
I may have to get one of these but I know it won.t turn out as good as Jose's.
I wonder why it was called Pig-we have a saying in England that something is a pig to work on maybe that was the reason.
And kudos to the chaps that did have to use them-they certainly frightened our Royal Navy.
Happy New Year to all
Steve :P

I believe the use of the nickname "Maiale" was in reference to the SLC 200s (Siluro Lenta Corsa: Slow Moving Torpedo) mobility underwater.
