welcome to superaereo.com

superaereo’ was the High Command of the Regia Aeronautica,
the Royal Air Force of Italy from 1923 until the Armistice in 1943.

This website is essentially a collection of notes, insights and opinions about one of my favourite subjects, scale model aircraft of the Regia Aeronautica. It is based on the many I have built and collected over the years, including those I reviewed for Scale Aircraft Modelling International. Quite a number of them are no longer available but they are still worth knowing about. Click on any of the links above to navigate your way around the site.

Also featured are computer-generated illustrations commissioned by Alphaflight, Bronco Models & Trumpeter. These can be viewed on the ‘art’ page. I no longer do this type of work as there are far better artists around today, such as A.Tooby and his amazing work for Airfix and J. Boucher, whose work has graced many a Sword kit box.

Based on my experience producing decal artwork for AlphaFlight, Barracudacals, Bronco Models & Pacific Coast Models, I have produced a small selection of  Regia Aeronautica decal sheets. The plan is to release limited edition decal sets on an occasional basis. At the moment, only the 1/48 Cr.32 and 1/32 Bf.109 RA decals are available (the C205 set is now sold out). Other projects are in the pipeline. Clink on the links below for more details.

This website is updated on a fairly regular basis so it’s always worth a return visit.
