This should be a great build. The Italeri kit is a good kit as I recall.

Yes it's good "solid" kit, Sword's decades newer & better detailed though more expensive. The Italian Kits I.F. Delta conversion parts flyer doesn't specify a Re.2001 donor kit; the Italaerei kit's engine supercharger inlet pipe is molded on the port fuselage side, part of it will have to be cut off & blanked over requiring extra work; keeping fingers crossed they'll graft on without whole lotta difficulty.
