Planet Models 1/72 IMAM Ro.41 (resin)

I've always liked this kit but I have not seen an in-depth online build. Its not perfect by any means, having only very basic detail parts and a generic engine. The kit boxtop illusration depicts unfaired wire wheels,but only spatted wheels are present in the kit. It does have appropriate scale trailing edge and builds into a tidy little model, as I hope these images prove.

I am currently 'upgrading' this kit as further investigation shows various changes are needed.

1. A few shape around the rear of the fuselage

2. Slightly revised undercarriage strut arrangement.

3. Improvements to the cowling shape.

4. A replacement engine that is more representative of the Piaggio radial.

5. Extend the upper wing wing span.

So not a perfect model as it turns out!
