Look to possible be tire mudguards?

Sounds plausible to me. As there are two of them, I assumed they had something to do with the landing gear. Do you have any visual reference for such a thing? I just did a quick check of all the Breda pics on Google and I couldn't find any evidence of these pieces anywhere on the plane. The mystery deepens!

The model does look nice, despite my problems with the wing attachment.

Is a part of undercarriage, is a rear door I believe...

That's what I thought at first, but I cannot find any reference to it anywhere. When in the up position, the wheeltips are exposed without any doors covering them, at least that's what I've seen in all the photos I could find.

where *that* part goes...

Chiming in on an old thread to enlighten you all.


The confusing parts are meant to be mud guards. Here you can see some versions of the plane had mud guards.


Here's a couple of pictures of how I did the parts.

I'm glad to see this build thread revived and to see your work on the undercarriage, including the mudguards.

It makes me want to dig out the box with my incomplete Ba65 and complete the model using your images and commentary and Péricles's excellent build thread: Zio Prudenzio Contest Breda 65 Spanish Civil War in 1/100 scale - PaperModelers.com

I last worked on my Ba65 in 2011, when Tora-chan the cat was still alive. I was stymied by the cranked wing dihedral. Péricles solved the problem, but I have yet to get back to the build.

I didn't have any trouble with the wings. I did the wings themselves first and added them to the fuselage but tried to make the dihedral not too big. Because of the lack of formers it is a little difficult to get it in place the first time.
What was more disturbing to me were the cuts in the chine section of the fuselage which came out very notable. I decided to take the uncut part out of the spare print I always make and glue it over the original one. I sanded the edges to become more flush with the original surface. It might still be a little crude, but to me it looked better than without.
The chine on Zio's Spitfire is working like a charm and is one of the best transitions from fuselage to wing I have ever seen in a simple one-page model. This one doesn't work so good.


But well, in the end, the Breda BA65 was a butt-ugly plane and it seems Breda has a trade mark on that. Just look at the train they designed some years ago for the Netherlands (which was subsequently rejected because a plethora of design faults):
