The Italian aces of World War One have gone down in history as the irrefutable masters of the skies in the battle against their Austro-Hungarian enemies. . .It brings together facts that it has normally taken many volumes of historical journals that are long since out of print and even newer material that had not been generally available until now.

Looks very interesting, thanks for discovering this. Does anyone make decals in 1/32nd for Italy in WW I? Could be a nice Nieuport 17 build.

I love the fact that we now know the serial to Baracca's early Bleriot Spad XIII.

Thanks for the review Stephen – I think I'll have to add this one to my library. I really fancy a Baracca SPAD VII/XIII standing next to my Austrian Albatros

All the best Mikael

Hi Bill – Spada decals used to do some Italian Nieuports in 1:32 – I think Baraccas, and a few more for the type 17...

Misterkit USA took over the Spada line a couple of years back here's a link MisterkitUSA

The site doesn't work that well, at least not in my browsers – but It might be worth your while to get in touch with them and see what they can do. As far as I know they still produce them. (Although I've never ordered any myself).

Best Regards

Mikael
