Ansaldo SVA

Carlos Guerra  has started his winter project already, an Ansaldo SVA-5, and has sent over some photos of the build so far. It is an Italian First World War biplane which he is building to one third scale, taking detail from the full size item. He hopes to have the plane ready for next summer, and will send more photos as the build progresses. (I’m building a third scale biplane from a kit, and that’s more than enough of a challenge for me. Hats off to these scratch builders I say.)

Never having heard of an Ansaldo and not wishing to appear too dim (I wish) I did a bit of internet web thing research and came accross this interesting Wikipedia entry:
