Borrowed Bomber

The third of my 'Gashapon' pre-painted SM.79s is this rather fetching Luftwaffe example.  Quite a few Italian aircraft were placed under new management following the 1943 armistice.
I think the yellow indicates that is aircraft belongs to a training unit.  It certainly makes for a colourful addition to the Luftwaffe bombers box!

That is a very pretty looking aircraft, Tim! Of course, for war games purposes it will have to be drafted in for front line duties. A bomber is a bomber is a bomber, after all!

Yes this is a very attractive scheme. I've only recently become aware just how many Italian types were used by the Germans, my favourite is the Fiat G.12 - another trimotor.

I'm sure it will find gainful employment in time.

The G.12 is a very elegant 'plane - but no guns or torpedoes!

Very nice indeed. I'm not going to comment on the painting. We all know what that leads to.

Embarrassed smile :-)
