The Italian Navy took on the design of the successful Sopwith Baby
to fill a gap in naval aircraft, but only four were completed by Ansaldo in 1917 and the other 96 of the batch were not delivered until 1918. While the Baby was a nice design in its day, it was outclassed by 1918, and most of them were relegated to training duties and left unarmed. They differed from the standard Baby in the use of the 120hp Le Rhône engine inside a full cowl with large ventilation cutouts on its bottom side.
This product comes in both 1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:288 scales. The 1:285 product contains two aeroplanes
, each with a detachable, translucent propeller disk. They are joined by disposable links to keep the price down, since single-part models are more affordable. You can break the links with nail clippers, wire cutters, or similar.
