Kit No: SH48208
Type: Injection Moulded Plastic
Manufacturer: Special Hobby www.specialhobby.eu

Comprising fifty-three parts in mid-greyplastic plus six clear, the kit combines thewings from the old Classic Airframe model with everything else newly tooled to provide the export version of Italy’s somewhat underappreciated Re.2000 (already released as ref. 48204 in the form of the initial Italian ‘Serie 1 intercettore’ version). The main components match the plans in the IBN Aviolibri Special No.6 monograph nicely.
All parts have recessed panel lines and the new ones are sharply moulded, but the model does require proper building. It won’t simply fall together, and that might put a few off what is actually a decent kit.

From Lynx to Wildcat
Coronavirus has had many impacts on our lives over the past eleven months, many of them difficult, some of them tragic and most of them generally frustrating. To be faced suddenly with a situation where our lives are not our own to control, where we are unable to pursue the joys and pleasures we take for granted, and instead find ourselves all too often restricted to our own four walls is not something that is comfortable.

POETIC LANDSCAPES:DITA JACOBOVITZ
Most of my landscape paintings are from my Residential area and from north Italy. I use various techniques, but mostly Oil on canvas. I decided several years ago that I will not try to reach the reality; I am trying to put the colors and shapes as I view them; sometimes, the place is the exactly the same spot, but the artworks are so different." - Dita Jacobovitz

This Victorian-era brownstone is deeply appreciated by its owners for its fine craftsmanship and age. “My clients respect the house for the same reasons I do,” says interior designer Deborah Mariotti, a transplant to Brooklyn from Italy. “We were responsible for its continued preservation, wherever it remained authentic.
