While waiting for glued foam board and undercoated minis to dry, I was thinking of aircraft, and whether there were any suitable 1/48 Italian and Austro-Hungarian models that would lend some 3-dimensional "colour" to a scenario.

One of my favourites is the Macchi M.5 seaplane fighter. Now I'm not an anime fan by any stretch, but this was one of the planes that featured in my favourite Hayao Miyazaki movie,
Porco Rosso (or Kurenai no Buta as it was known here).

So it was nice to find a video of a replica Macchi M.5 in flight, which you can see below. I wonder if it has the altitude and payload to be able to reach and bomb the Collina della Formica?
