Would it be too difficult to see these two skins in FH for the GENERAL_ITALY folder?

1)Dewointe D.520 - When France surrendered Germany gave a number of Frenach D.520's to Italy. A few sqyuadrons used them as trainers but several squadrons used them i combat over the Balkans, Greece, Russia, and it seems North Africa and Sicily. http://modellismo.marvel.it/e_d520.htm

2) Italian Ju-87B Stuka. Was used in Balkans, Russia, and North Africa. http://modellismo.marvel.it/e_stuka.htm

Hmm, more stuff for Italy eh? I like it...

Huh, that D.250 somewhat resembles a Spitfire if it was pushed inwards...

Similar engine, the D.520 carried a Hispano Suiza 12-Y which was a V-12 design similar to the Merlins. The Yak fighters also have a nose shape similar to the Merlin and that is because it carries the Klimov M105PF which was based on the same Hispano Suiza 12-Y that powered the Dewointe D.520

Well so far I have found Dornier Do-217's, Ju-88's, Sdkfz251 Hanomag, Kubelwagen (rare as the Fiat Topolino was the standard military car), StuG IIIG, and PzIVH

I think its a good idea, however I would have to say pretty much no, depending on the amount of work involved.

If its not much work to do the skins then ok, otherwise I think should waiting is better (i.e do them eventually) because I would much rather see new italian aircraft skined for models that have none, then another skin for an existing aircraft.

In otherwords, I would prefer a totally unskinned aircraft getting its first, then the another skin for these right now. Once the italians have more items done I think a better case could be made for it.
