Reggiane Re 2003 1st Prototype

In the early stages of WW2, the Regia Aeronautica‘s reconnaissance capabilities depended mainly on the Breda Ba.37 type. These machines, being of a biplane configuration, were not able to stand successfully against the enemy‘s fighter planes. Thus, the Regia sought a more up-to -date replacement machine and the Reggiane company was asked to develop a significantly faster reconnaissance aircraft. As a basis for this new design, a Reggiane Re.2000 fighter plane which possessed quite reasonable performance was used. The first prototype of the new version was developed directly from its fighter predecessor. The new plane´s performance seemed to be acceptable, however, yet another reconnaissance type was subsequently developed using more powerful Re.2002 fighter type and a production was also ordered. It never realised, though, as Italy capitulated on Sept 8, 1943.

The kit brings two frames of plastic parts, two resin fuselage halves specific to the Re.2003 version and several other resin parts as the interior, engine and some others. Furthermore, there are also photo -etched parts bringing extra detail to the model, vacuum-formed canopy and a decal sheet covering the first prototype markings.
