NEW ITALIAN BOMBER KIT FROM SPECIAL HOBBY

Piaggio’s P.108 was notable as the Regia Aeronautica’s (RA – Italian Air Force’s) only four-engined bomber, but also the type that killed Bruno Mussolini… son of Italian fascist dictator Benito. Special Hobby first issued a Piaggio P.108B as II. Serie airframe back in 2005, and the following year released its P.108A.
