Build your static model fleet with the 1/48 Scale RE.2002 Ariete Plastic Model Kit. The Reggiane 2002 was developed for the Italian Air Force as a fighter-bomber, as a further development of the fighter RE 2000. This aircraft was equipped with a more powerful engine and increased armaments. The “Ariete” as the RE 2002 was better known, had vast storage capacity and was able to carry bombs as heavy as 500kg.
The squadrons equipped with this aircraft saw a great deal of action against the allied fleet invading Sicily in 1943. After the Italian surrender in September of that same year, the surviving aircraft were used by the Luftwaffe, which produced its own version with almost 200 variants.
The Italeri range of kits are manufactured from tough styrene plastic and provide a high level of scale detail.
Material: Styrene plastic
