Here is the latest issue of Classic Airframes' 1/48 scale Falco family - a Fiat CR 42 CN night fighter.

The kit is the same as the first release except for the different exhausts one set of long pipes that is on this model and a set of shorter ones. The kit also has some under wing spotlights and a generator for the lights that goes on top of the upper wing.



There are markings for five aircraft four with the black-grey paint and one with camouflage finish on the upper surfaces and black lower surfaces.

The model depicts a CR.42 CN of 301a Squadriglia C. N. based in Gela, Sicily from October to December of 1941 the first night fighter squadron.
