Vintage Italian Dive Bomber Papercraft

This antique papercraft airplane is estimated to have been produced in Italy sometime during the 1930's or 40's. The title on the template reads "bombardiere a tuffo" which in English is "dive bomber". And indeed, there is bomb included on the underside of the model. The colorization of the plane (which I love) seems rather fanciful, so I am unsure if the model was intended to represent an actual aircraft or be a generic representation of this type of aircraft. A copy of the template for the airplane may be downloaded here. Build photos by Tom Greensfelder.
