...Too bad let golden opportunity pass not buying one of SEM Models' 1/72 SM.84 resins, must make do building the ancient Aviation USK/Xotic-72 kits, starting on them c. July 1, 2020.

RIC, When you build your SM 84 I am sure that you will notice that the flight deck windscreen is incorrect. When I built this kit about 25 years ago I made a mold in the correct configuration with wood and then vacuformed it. Unfortunately this form is back in America and I am in Morocco otherwise I would make another windscreen and send it to you.

...Was why I'd hoped to build the 1/72 scale SEM Model resin but have both plastics so bad as the kits are will do so as-are along with numerous other incorrectly molded Regia Aeronautica Italiana kits in my collection just to get the darn things built, move onto other build projects. I'd posted elsewhere on the forum hoping other model makers will buy the SEM Model molds, get the SM.84 kit back into production before end of 2022, no more kit building after that - finis!
