My collection of original Italian WW2 models.

Postby faxtolder » Fri Jun 04, 2010 8:42 am

Dear All,

I'm new of the forum, I'm an Italian collector of models of Italian WW2 aircrafts, and I thought to post some pics of my collection here!

All of them were built during the War, either by the manufacturers of the real actual planes, or anyway by original suppliers of the Regia Aeronautica.

Hello, everyone. I'm also a new member and I'm very impressed with your collection of Italian warbirds, faxtolder. I happen to be developing a large collection of plastic and, more recently, diecast aircraft replicas, which includes many Italian WWII planes---mostly in 1:72nd or smaller scales. Just wondering if you might favor us with some close-up pictures when you have the time. The metal ones are particularly interesting. Thanks.

Nice historical models. I've the huge red CANTZ (circa 1936's) and I 've very surprise by the quality of your collection !
I'm looking for a vintage Savoia M 73. If you have a model for sale... I present my Cantz model and other vintage seaplan (SU42 circa 1937)

I have a cast iron {very heavy} model of the Pan American Airways Sikorsky S-42 in original condition on its original stand. I have seen this model on another stand. Could be a 1930s Sikorsky model or one PAA gave to travel agents. No makers mark or label.

Dear All,

Thanks loads for your kind answers, and sorry for my late reply, I've been busy around Europe for business.

@ Dasimperator: not sure whether my poor English allows me to understand the meaning of "uncoiled snake", but if you mean the spyral - like stands, indeed they are pretty cool! All of them are original from the War period, and came along with the models themselves. Also the Reggiane series has snake - like stands, but in this case they reproduce the number 2 of the plane name (Reggiane 2000, 2001...).

@ MicaelB: the only known maker name, different from the real planes manufacturers, is "G. Fere", that was based in Cinisello, close to Milan, during the War. They were the official supplier of models for the Regia Aeronautica, in their polished empty metal versions, done one by one by master crafts. I posted all of these models in my other post, but they are closed behind a glass hence not easily visible, please find here below a close up of a Fiat G50 of this kind that I have:

Most of the other models, especially the full metal painted ones, has been done directly by the real planes manufacturers for various purposes (Savoia Marchetti, Reggiane, CANT, FIat, Macchi, Breda, Caproni, Ansaldo...).

@ Epap: I'm in the process of taking close-up pics of all the models, but it is taking time, in the meantime feel free to PM me your mail address, and I will send you high definition versions of the overall pics you found here, for you to zoom on the models you like the most!

@ Francois: I could kill for your Cant-Z: THAT'S AN EXTREMELY NICE MODEL !!! It is definitely the same as mine on the top left of my second pic above, just different code!
