Leo Models - Some at 1/144 !?


Leo Models - Some at 1/144 !?

these popped up in my inbox as a result of a standing searchin on ebay...
Alhthough up for 11 Euro which roughly eqautes to 1165 Yen / 15 USD / 14 AUD / 10 GBP so dont expect to fine a product,

It does for obvious reasons have to be one of the largest collection of Italian aircraft out there?

It does have a mixed range of scales aking to a "fix the box" range, incorporating 1/72, 1/100 1/144 and 1/200? So be careful on the items that you buy

1/44 or 1/200 (?) SM.81
The SM.81 is only a little bit larger than the SM.79, so it would be a shame if they dropped it to 1/200....
The dimensions of the ebay listing match closely to what it should be if it was 1/144

1/144 SM.79
200666546727 ... -del-Cielo

oddly, the website says it 1/200 - yet the measurements on the ebay listing do reflect the 1/144 scale dimensions for this aircraft!?

There are references to the range on the following forum threads

The manufacturer is Leomodels, which is working with publisher, Fabbri, in yet another of those Altaya, Hachette, etc.-style subscription deals
#26 Fiat BR.20 Cicogna 1/144
#32 Caproni Ca.3 1/144
#34 SIAI Marchetti SM.79 1/144

more to come...?
