FineScale Modeler reviews the 1/32 scale plastic model biplane aircraft kit. Biplanes twisting and turning, vying for advantage was a combat mode left over from the World War I; except the Regia Aeronautica (Italian Air Force) still thought it was a viable option leading up to the beginning of the World War II with its highly agile, and outdated, CR.42 Falco. Serving in lower threat areas, the Falco held on as a fighter for a while but was easily outclassed when meeting modern monoplanes like the Hurricane. Secondary duty as a ground attack mount followed. ICM released this pretty Italian bird of prey in 1/32 scale, starting with the standard fighter version. Detail is good, and surface detail is well done. All strut mounting points are well defined leading to a sturdy assembly.
