Got mine in the post yesterday. Looks good in the box. I think Sword produced PCM's 1/32 kit, so it should be accurate!

Hi, I have ordered my kit today. Noticed it was available whilst internet browsing at work, in free time of course! It is about time kits of Reggiane types became available. From what I can see, on screen, of the kit it looks quite detailed, but I like to super-detail my models. I use mostly Eduard etch detailing sets. Since both Sword and Eduard are Czech I am hoping a detailing set for this kit will soon become available. Look forward to Re 2001 kits being available too.

Well, seems it's now time for me to commit suicide (as was announced after completing the Pavla model)... ;-)

However, if I see it correctly there is at least 1 problem with the Sword kit, namely the symmetrical fin (while the real one had an offset).
The kit also features identical covering plates over the exhaust stacks for both sides, so that the plate on the left side should be extended.

You know, I' d just feel bad, if I had found no faults with the new Sword kit!... ;-)

Still seems to be by far better than the starting point of this masochistic excercise:

I must say that I was a little disappointed with the box, which fell apart as I opened my parcel after receiving it through the post. At least everything is contained in a plastic bag! The actual kit looks quite good, well moulded ect., but all the detail is included in the mould. The only resin parts are exhausts, wheels and gunsight.

Thanks for your post, I was wondering what the kit looked like as it still hasn't hit our shores yet.

No problem Vince. Due to the trouble with the box and therefore storage(I have a cupboard full of kits to do), I think I may do this kit next. If so, I may post my progress with it. As well as this Re2005, Sword have a Re2001 kit coming out. However, I now see that Special Hobby have a Re2001 due for release also. I may wait to see which is best.
Tanti auguri, Dave.

Hi all,
I was going to post progress with my version of this model, but it looks like I have been beaten to it! It looks really good and makes me want to get on with my Reggiane. However, work, household chores, a holiday and a tricky F14D kit, which is my current project, have meant that I haven't even started yet! Also, I have bought an airbrush and have been getting to grips with that. Hopefully my future R.A. kits will look a lot better with the techniques I am learning with my current project.
Dave.

Hi all,
I have made slow progress on this project, mainly due to slipping on ice and breaking my arm! I did this before Christmas and am just able to return to modeling now. Anyway, here's my version.

Very nice. You've done a good job there.

Could you please tell me what paint colours you chose to use?

Thanks.
I always use Revell Aqua Color. I used 76, Light Gray for the Grigio Azzurro Chiaro and a 50/50 mix of 46, Nato olive and 65, Bronze Green for the Verde Oliva Scuro.
Cheers,
Dave.

Thanks Vince,
I thought that the Sword kit went together quite well, good mouldings, very little flash and quite a good fit. I used Eduard's Italian seatbelts and some odds and ends to detail it. I do hope that my modeling is getting better, as is my arm. Luckily it was my left arm and I am right handed, but it still hurts a little typing this! I will be interested to see what types of aircraft that Sword add to their range. They have put out a Spitfire so far, as well as the Reggiane types. It was their Gladiator which I have purchased though, as it has markings for 33 squadron RAF which the RA opposed during the desert campaign in 1940. I plan to do Italeri's Fiat CR42 as a 97a Squadrilia aircraft, 1940 desert colours.
Cheers, Dave.
