Special Hobby 1/48 scale Fiat B.R.20

The Fiat B.R.20 was a late-1930s design that served the Regia Aeronautica from the Spanish Civil War through the start of World War II. Interestingly, the Japanese purchased several B.R.20s and used them in China.

The new Special Hobby kit (and identical Classic Airframes release) provides the first plastic 1/48 kit of the  Fiat B.R.20. Parts are well-molded in gray plastic and feature restrained surface detail. This model represents the initial production run, but from the parts breakdown it is easy to see later versions may be issued.
