SH48204 Reggiane Re.2000 in 1/48 - kit content preview plus some extra additions

As you might have already learnt from our July 2020 Newsletter, Special Hobby are releasing a brand new rendition of that fabulous Italian WW2 fighter plane, the Reggiane Re 2000. The only sprue to have some earlier origin is with the wings which can be traced back to a Classic Airframes kit, all the rest of the styrene items is whole new and it also needs to be stressed that the smaller details come from milled metal type moulds to offer excellent level of detail. The pre-cut masks and resin cast detail sets are to be available separately.

Tony did magnificent job indeed, we hope you like his models as we do.

   As you, modellers and customers keep asking whether we really are working on the release of the 1/32 scale Tiger Moth kit, we feel the need to confirm it as a fact now and we also do believe that this new release will make many of you really happy. And we cannot forget to mention many other models and sets which are to appear on our offer in coming days and weeks. This summer will see the release of the 1…
