Here is a feature relating the build of a duo of Italeri 1:48 scale Reggiane Re.2002s kits which have been entered in the "Made in italy" Campaign. One model was built almost from the box while the second has been exentsively modified to correct the numerous errors and omisions of the original kit.

Well, they're both excellent builds, but I think the extra work on the "improved" kit was worth it (of course, it wasn't me who had to have to do the work, though). The Reggiane is an attractive aircraft--a shame Italeri didn't do it a little better justice.

Once again, you prove your bravery...

They look great Jean-Luc. Excellent work on the scratch built details.
