Beautiful shots of a very interesting subject. Italian aircraft in use with the South American countries has received relatively little coverage. I very much appreciate this contribution. Thank you.

Yes the Ca.135 was a good plane although its use with the RA was overshawdoed by other Italian planes. Also put to use by the Hungarians on the Eastern Front (if I recall correctly). Worth noting the position of the radiator which appears to drop down from the landing gear bay.

Yes, the radiator was retractile, in similar way as the radiators on the Heinkel 111. It drops inmediately before the landing gear bays and had built-in shutters. Regards
