This is a full-color 1:144 3D print of Ansaldo Baby S.5005.  Italy needed a reliable floatplane so they licensed the Sopwith Baby for production by Ansaldo.  By the time the planes reached service in early 1918, they couldn’t compare well with the flying boats that dominated the war over the Adriatic.  Most were used as trainers, but this model depicts one that had been armed with an upward-firing Lewis machine gun.

No painting is necessary — this model comes printed in full color, ready to use.  The model does not come with a flight stand, maneuver deck, or plane card.  You can find an unofficial plane card for this plane in this paint scheme in the gallery on this page.
