The Aermacchi MB-339 was developed as a direct evolution of MB-326. The MB-339 project was in fact based on the main aerodynamic characteristics of its predecessor, enhancing the role of advanced military trainer through the redesign of the forward fuselage to raise the instruction’s seat and to increase visibility. Thanks to its maneuverability, the good operational flexibility, and the possibility to load a wide range of weapons in its hard points under the wings,   the MB 339 has also been developed to perform light attack and close support duties.   
The Italian Air Force is the main user of the MB-339 as advance trainer plane. Furhter more the MB-339 has been used by Argentine Naval Aviation, as light attack fighter, during the Falkland / Malvinas were in 1982.

The Vosper St. Nazaire Raid 1/35th scale model represents the last in Italeri’s line dedicated to motor torpedo boats and is characterized by the highest level of details and the most accurate historical research. We looked at the crew for this boat in last month’s releases from Italeri
On March 1942, a British amphibious attack was undertaken by Royal Navy and Commandos against the large dry dock at Saint Nazaire, in German occupied France. “Chariot” was the codename of the combined operation. The French harbor was in fact an important logistic point for the German Kriegsmarine in the Atlantic. The raid was conducted by some destroyers and by a motor launches flotilla that provide the transport duties of British Commandos. The operation was successful done and the dry dock was damaged and unusable until the end of the war. 
A key role was assigned to the MTB 74. It had been specifically modified by Royal Navy shipyards to house torpedo tubes on its foredeck and to adopt specific engine silencers to reduce the noise. MTB 74 duty was to hit the anti-submarine nets and then to launch its torpedoes   to block the lock gate. The MTB achieved its targets   but on the way back it was hit and sank
Rigging as well
PE Parts included
 Masking for the portholes on the boat as well!
These kits are now available through Italeri’s distributors worldwide
