    Accessories : OOB with rigging

    The Fiat Cr 42 was the last biplane fighter to be manufactured during the WWII.The Cr42 enter service the Regia Aeronautica in late 1939,the plane was praised by its pilots for its exceptional manuverability and flying characteristics.However ,the Cr42 was a classic example of pushing a good idea to far.

    I have this kit for quite a few years and now how have motivation to build it.The build will consist of another OOB using supplied resin engine and PE details for the pit.
