Thank you kindly for your comments guys.

Please note that the colours are German RLM-colours 74,75,76, used by the Northern (fascist) Italian Republic in 1944/45.

I like that. The pic with you holding it really shows how small it is. The first two look so much bigger

Nice finish!  I love the Italians' fighter designs.

Aliplast was Italeri's predecessor?  From the base, it looks like that's where they got their logo, then.  Did this kit pass into Italeri's catalog?  I think I have it in my stash.  Or else it's from Supermodel.

The Italians had some of the best looking fighters!!! 

Great job there, always love looking at your work!
