What a lovely trio you have there, Andonio! All are beautiful, but I'm especially accracted to Scaroni's kite.  I love the red, white, green and black markings against the light tan.  Very striking.  And the twin Vickers make it stand out even more.  Conratulations.
Cheers,
Bud

Your build of these three beauties was great to watch as always! Like Bud my favorite is the Scaroni bird. That being said I also love the blue bird, one I will do if ever a 1/32nd kit becomes available!

Thanks Rick, I don't prefer any of the three, as when you have three children... you can't decide which one is better...
I don't like very much the 1/32 scale, but if ever one HD1 will be produced in that scale I will take it for sure, there is plenty of documented profiles of Italian pilots...

PS I hope this thread wil be enriched by other Hanriot models built here in the forum, I remember one HD2 on floats made by Arnaud (Naimbs) and one by Jorgo...

I do like the lines of HD.1, too. So let me join with mine, built a couple of years ago from HR Models kit. It is 6254 from 76a Squadriglia flown by Tenente Giorgio Michetti in Spring 1918 from Casoni airfield.

I remember this beauty, Przemo!  Such remarkable work in such a tiny scale.  Looks to be at least 1/48 scale.
Cheers,
Bud
