Guardia di Finanza air fleet

Post by DavideV » Thu Sep 15, 2011 6:57 pm

Here we go... project started!

Guardia di Finanza is a special Italian police force that reports directly to the Minister of Economy and Finance, is organized according to a military structure and is part of the State's Armed Forces. The tasks of this Financial Police consist of prevention, investigation and accusation of tax evasion and surveillance at sea for the purposes of the financial police. In addition, Guardia di Finanza contributes to the maintenance of public security and the defense of Italian bounds (http://www.gdf.it).

Guardia di Finanza air fleet consists of:

Agusta AB412HP:

Agusta NH500:

Agusta A109AII:

Agusta-Westland A109N Nexus: [RELEASED]

Agusta-Westland AW139:
Image

ATR42 MP:
Image

Piaggio P.166 DLR3-DP1: [RELEASED]
Image

Piaggio P.180 Avanti:
Image

This is quite a long term project and I still have to finish the other two, but... nobody's chasing me so I can just relax and to the job whenever I want :roll:

I decided to start the A109N from scratch (I won't do the A109AII because the Nexus is an improved version with minor exterior modifications). Fuselage and rotors are done, I also gave a yellow primer on the body, just to see the effect. The cockpit glass is still at a very early state...

Hope all of you choppers will enjoy this project ;)

You may want to darken the windows a little to be closer to the pic.

Financial Police! Sounds Scary. Imagine the IRS having an armed force to be used against suspected Tax evaders. Maybe I shouldn't be giving them any ideas... :lol:

In a nation where tax evasion is considered a serious crime, that would be really scary indeed! But in Italy, where tax evasion is almost considered something to be proud of... well... it ain't that scary.

The work here with the A109N is almost done. I just have to make the decal on the rotor intake, change the .DAT file and then split better some edges. I'm also thinking about a pilot (I don't know wether to scratch-build it too or take it somewhere) and the baldes' shadows. Here is a picture taken at PNHL:

I'm still trying to comprehend how the first picture turned into this.
