The Fiat G.55 Centauro was a single-engine single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. The FIAT G.55 was a fighter whose merits were undoubtedly greater than those that can be deduced from the short building figures or from its use in service. The value of this aircraft was shown when after WW2 it was ordered to FIAT to resume the manufacturing of the aircraft bringing to life a new G.55 versions named G.55A and G.55B.

"All photos are in B&W but the modeler will find many interesting markings to give them inspiration."


"Add to the in-depth history of the type some great period photos, images of surviving types, a full set of plans, and some great full page color profiles, and you have a great book to add to your library."
