What aircraft did Italian paratroopers use to jump from during WWII?

SM 81-T, the "Pipistrello": link

One of the Italian paratroops' relatively few combat drops was on the island of Chios. It was unopposed, but I've always wanted to do a "what-if" pitting brave but ill-armed Greek police and reservists against a small number of Italian paratroops.

Does anyone make a model of it in either 1/144 or 1/200?

If it were me, I'd just kit-bash a Ju-52.
