A 1/48 Romeo Ro.43 on Trento cruiser catapult

The Italian heavy cruiser Trento was introduced into active service in 1929 and her fate was sealed in June 1942 by a torpedo launched from British submarine HMS Umbra. During the war, her catapults were often used by Romeo Ro.43 observation and reconnaissance biplanes. A model of this aircraft is produced by Special Hobby in the widely-liked 1/48 scale, its catalogue number being SH48137. A modeller unfortunately unknown to us has built the kit and placed it on a catapult with a section of the Trento cruiser hull. The photos which you can admire today have been kindly provided by the editor of SKY MODEL Magazine Thomas Abbondi. This magazine, whose friendly team collaborates with our company, is not the only one published by Aurigapublishing, for more interesting periodicals please visit their website www.aurigapublishing.it. As always, many many thanks for the photos.
