E-mail Print

This model is the result of recoloring aircraft model that is already on paper replika, a Piaggio P-180 Avanti. This is my first time recoloring this type of aircraft. I'm coloring its livery using Italian coast guard color (guardia costiera). Not too much difference compared to the previous model, there is only little different detail. This type of aircraft is the only one owned by the Italian coast guard. Basic pattern is still the same as the previous model, which is 3 pages.
