Ala (Italian for: wing) is the Italian licensed production of the Hermes Baby. Licensee was the Società Industriale Meccanica (S.I.M.).
Here we see a very early specimen. Later the line developed in the SIMTYPE Baby and Montana, all still based on the Hermes Baby.
Still need to fix the drawband, so no type sample for now.
