1/72 Italeri Reggiane RE 2002 Ariete

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Jan 17 2019



The kit of the Italian fighter is from 1971.  I had to build the cockpit from scratch. There comes just the pilot figure and a seat with the kit.  The parts are fitting well.

The model was painted with brush and enamels from Humbrol and Revell.  I added some weathering and aging this time.  The scratches I made with a broken piece of wood.  I used the breaking points for drybrushing with Aluminium 99 from Revell.

Some decals were yellowed, so I had to replace them by selfmade decals or painted the markings on.  I sealed the model with flat clear varnish.

Enjoy the pictures!
