Possible future releases are:

ICM. 3 x 1/32 Fiat Cr.42 (Italian, German and Foreign service).

Dora Wings 1/72 Savoia Marchetti S.55A

AMP (Mikro-Mir). 1/72 & 1/48 Macchi MC.72, 1/72 Piaggio Pegna P.7

Special Hobby have consistently produced worthy Regia Aeronautica aircraft kits over the years. Recently they re-issued the  impressive 1/72 Piaggio P.108, released back in 2005 in a joint effort with Flying Machines. This update has upgraded resin and injection moulded detail parts. They have also released a nicely detailed RE.2005 in 1/48 and a revised version of the ex-Classic Airframe RE.2000 kit with all new fuselage and detail parts, although they did not correct the wing panel detail, which has been based on the RE.2001/RE.2002 wing.


Other recent releases worth checking out are:

AMP 1/48 Piaggio Pegna P.7. Please note that it actually scales out at 1/50

Dora WIngs 1/72 Savoia S.55. At long last a decent but rather complex kit of this disctintive twin-hulled seaplane

SBS Model 1/72 FIAT G.50, Macchi MC.72 and Piaggio Pegna P.7. All are well executed, highly detailed resin kits

Sword 1/48 Reggiane RE.2005. A close match to the admittedly superior Special Hobby RE.2005


Most of the Special Hobby Regia Aeronautica kits are worth a look, the most recent being the following:

1/72 scale: Breda Ba.88, Caproni Ca.310/Ca.311/Ca.311M and Piaggio P.108

1/48 scale: Breda Ba.65, IMAM Ro.37/Ro.43/Ro.44, Reggiane RE.2000 & RE.2005

1/32 scale: Fiat G.50

Most of the 1/72 kits in this list below are long gone. They could do with a second look as there is quite a lot of new data available these days making it possible to produce much better quality models.

Although there are many aircraft unlikely to appear in any type of kit form it would be great to see these:

Breda Zappata BZ.308 - the "Connie Italiano"

CANT Z.511 - large elegant 4-engined seaplane

CANT Z.1012 - liaison trimotor monoplane

Piaggio P.16 - trimotor with elliptical gull-wing

Piaggio P.23R - streamlined trimotor transport

Savoia SM.91 - twin-boom fighter

Savoia SM.92 - variant of above




These are kits whose construction I particularly enjoyed:
