1:48 ANSALDO S.V.A 5 Late
RETURN OF THE FLY!
THIS is a 1:48 scale Ansaldo S.VA.5 Late version reconnaissance fighter (Kit No.48007) from Fly and is one of the best kits of this Italian classic in 1:48 as you are likely to get. With resin detail parts and a sparkling decal sheet offering three options, this is a class act. We have just one in near-mint order!
AS well as 1:72 scale Ansaldo kits, FLY also produced the Italian fighter in 1:48 and 48007 is one of these. Beautifully detailed and accurately scaled as its smaller counterpart ,the Ansaldo S.V.A.5 reconnaissance fighter is moulded in a pale beige plastic of excellent quality.As might be expected there is slightly more business going on inside the cockpit with several items in resin with control horns and other small detail parts in the same medium.There are two windshields, one injection-moulded and the other vac-formed so you have the choice.All moulded detail is crisp and realistic and apart from two parts detached from their frame,the contents are in mint condition.
Decals are provided for three examples,all fully illustrated in colour under the box-and all post war:S.V.A 11988 of a reconnaissance school with the striking billowing fuselage pennant;an airmail transport version flying from Rome to Genoa and a civilian-marked I-BRILL school machine based at Breda circa 1925.
