Not quite finished yet, I added some plug leads and wires as well, not that easy in this scale.
The last photo is a Revell Packard.

Hi Red Lancer,
The Italian Corpo Aereo Italiano (CAI) a task force sent by Mussolini to "help" the Luftwaffe in October/November 1940 had
Fiat BR.20s as their main bomber.
I foolishly decided that it would be good to build 'something different', but the kit isn't very good and is fighting me all the way, as some kits sometime do...

Thanks Biggles. I never knew about that. I bet the Luftwaffe was really chuffed!

Hi Red Lancer,
The Luftwaffe was SO pleased they sidetracked the Italians to airfields in Belgium to try and keep them out of the way...
As you might have guessed they didn't do very well and suffered quite badly at the hands of RAF fighters...

Seem to have read it somewhere.
Maybe wrong.

There is a Bit in this months Scale Aviation Mag  informing WW11 diorama builders that ICONICAIR
are about to release a resin David Brown Tugmaster Tractor, which was used to haul the bomb trolleys.
 Apparently they do bomb trolleys as well.
There is no mention of scale, which is pretty unbelievable for a Model Mag!

It's also in SAMI with no scale given but a quick online search says it's 1/32 scale.
