Reggiane Re.2000 Export Birds
Jon Tabinor

Kit No: SH48208

Scale: 1/48

Type: Injection Moulded Plastic

Manufacturer: Special Hobby www.specialhobby.eu

Also used: CMK Quick & Easy Reggiane Re.2000 Resin Main Wheels (ref. Q48371) CMK Detail Sets Reggiane Re.2000 Resin Strengthened tailwheel set (ref. Q48372) CMK Quick & Easy Reggiane Re.2000 Resin Head Rest (ref. Q48373) Special Mask Reggiane Re 2000 Canopy mask with instrument panel decal (ref. M48003)

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.

IPMS Column

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

The Art of Juxtaposition LIVING LIGHTLY IN A HISTORIC TOWNHOUSE

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. In areas where it was not original, though, we had no doubt that we would design contemporary space. It wasn’t even a question.”
