Reggiane Re 2000 (Special Hobby Kit)
Brengun continues to put out multi-media kits for various manufacturers. This particular set is designed for the Special Hobbies Re 2000 in 1/48th scale.
Packaged in a resealable package with heavy card stock backing to protect the photoetch, the set includes one fret of nickel-plated photoetch and one clear acetate film. The photoetch fret includes seatbelts, instrument panels, interior parts, and landing gear doors. The acetate will need some white added to the rear of the film, prior to adding it to the PE part.
The additional detail will add to the look of the cockpit and the landing gear covers. The instrument panels will just require some paint and dry brushing to bring out the detail. The PE landing gear cover is more to scale than the kit plastic part. All the other interior parts, especially the seatbelt and harnesses will add visual interest to the cockpit. Just be careful bending, and painting will bring it to life.
Another great set from Brengun. This will be a good addition to your Special Hobbies Re 2000.
