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 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savoia-Marchetti_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 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savoia-Marchetti_SM.79

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
