Italeri’s October new items

EF 2000 TYPHOON single seater
1/72nd scale
Super decals sheet for 8 versions
The Eurofighter project, developed from the second half of the 80s by a consortium of European companies, had the objective of produce an advanced multi-role combat aircraft with a strong specialization in the interception. The result of the project is the "Typhoon" that is one of the best air superiority fighter in the world. Its aerodynamic design is characterized by the canard-delta wing. Thanks to its two Eurojet EJ200  turbofan engines  the Typhoon is able to reach a maximum speed of Mach 2. The on board technology, enhanced by the fly-by-wire control system, allows to obtain a great manoeuvrability in air combat duties. Two-seater versions have also been developed for advanced training in order to ensure the gradual transition of the pilots from aircraft that, as in the case of the Italians F-104, were much more old-fashioned and dated.
Decals for 8 versions in RAF , Saudi, Luftwaffe, Spanish, Italian and Austrian air forces.

The Fiat G -91 was an interesting project, designed in the '50s by the Italian engineer Giuseppe Gabrielli, to develop a light fighter bomber able to perform ground close support and reconnaissance duties. The project was particularly appreciate by several NATO Countries looking for a light, small, low cost, but reliable and manoeuvrable strike fighter. Furthermore some pre-production converted machines were used by Italian aerobatic team, the Frecce Tricolori, and knew as G-91 PAN. 

The G-91, equipped with smoke generators replaced, in 1963, the rather old F-86 Sabre, and equipped the flight line of aerobatic team for almost 20 years. With the characteristic “Frecce Tricolori” blue livery, the G-91 PAN was the protagonist of the most important airshows and events in the ‘60s and ‘70s.  Only after 20 years of success, in the early ‘80s, the G- 91 was replaced by the new Aermacchi MB-339.

Decals for one version from the Italian Aerobatic Team the Frecce Tricolori.
