S.M.79 Sparviero

------- ULTRA REALISTIC MODEL --------
Hi guys! After a long time of absence, I've made a new plane, the Savoia Marchetti 79 Sparviero. My grandpa visited one of these with his school when he was a child, so I wanted to post my version! It is a multirole medium bomber developed in Italy during WWII, and used by the Regia Aereonautica.

Instructions:
AG 1 to activate front gun
AG 3 + VTOL DOWN to open bombs bay (it has 5 small bombs)
AG 4 + VTOL DOWN to use landing flaps (they work!)
AG 5 + VTOL + Camera to use left machine gun.
AG 6 + VTOL + Camera to use right machine gun.
Throttle at 100% for takeoff.

A bit of trivia:
The Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 Sparviero (Italian for sparrowhawk) was a three-engined Italian medium bomber with a wood-and-metal structure. Originally designed as a fast passenger aircraft, this low-wing monoplane, between 1937 and 1939, set 26 world records that qualified it for some time as the fastest medium bomber in the world. It first saw action during the Spanish Civil War and flew on all fronts in which Italy was involved during World War II. It became famous and achieved many successes as a torpedo bomber in the Mediterranean theater.The SM.79 was an outstanding aircraft and was certainly the best-known Italian aeroplane of World War II. It was easily recognizable due to its distinctive fuselage dorsal "hump", and was well liked by its crews who nicknamed it Gobbo Maledetto ("damned hunchback"). It was the most widely produced Italian bomber of World War II, with some 1,300 built, remaining in Italian service until 1952.

    @FrogmasterAeronautics Do you mind if I make a sub-assembly of your Italian Air Force roundel? A friend of mine is doing some Italian builds and needs one.

    @Cedy117 @kaaraabiner I will post it today, feel free to use it on whatever you want! ;) I saw you one Cedy! And it's good, but you didn't show so good the "fascio littorio" spikes on the roundel, probably there weren't any kind of 01x01 blocks around.. But your Cant remains awesome :D
