Hi Years ago the Revell CR 42 was the only one on the market. I made it for the first time about 40 years ago, and some 20 years ago I was not able to accept any longer it bad look. I removed old paint and tried to reshape as much as possible. I made wider rear part of fuselage by about 1.5 mm but still it remains too round, I am affraid. I reshaped the cowling and the undercarridge as weel as added some inlets and outlets of air. At present much better kits are available (Pavla - second hand and Italeri) so perhaps one day I will try again to model this very nice Fiat last biplane. Markings are from 162 Sq., 161 Gruppo, Scarpanto (Aegan Sea area), IV-V 1941 so from the war against Grecce. Decals by Esci (also about 40 yrs old now, rather tick...) Please have a look - comments welcome Regrads Jerzy-Wojtek
