This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Based on the earlier C.R.32, which obtained remarkable results during the Spanish War, the C.R.42 was made entirely of metal and had a A.74 engine of 840 HP. 200 aircraft denominated Falco were ordered immediately by the Aeronautics division and were used during the initial phases of the Second World War. It was also very successful, commercially speaking and was indeed exported to Sweden, Belgium and Hungary. The lack of valid monoplanes extended the period of service of the C.R.42's in the line-ups of the Aeronautics division through to Armistice Day Following the 8th September 1943, production continued for Luftwaffe, who also used it widely as a night fighter. The total production exceeded 1.500.
