Reggiane RE 2000 / J.20
Classic Airframes 1/48 kit. There's quite a few changes to make this model more accurate, the cockpit opening shape, the forward fuselage panel lines and the flaps are some of these. If one wants to do these improvements, pick up a copy of "Reggiane RE 2000 Falco, Heja, J.20" by Maurizio Di Terlizzi, it will give the reader all the information needed to do so in a much more coherent manner than I could do. I did have to vac form a new canopy hood to pose it open as the kit part is too small to do this. I also added canopy slide rails and a scratch rear view mirror.
