1/48 Special Hobby – Fiat Cr.32 Freccia/Chirri – [Kit SN 48182]

The CR.32 was an evolutionary development of an earlier Fiat Biplane fighter, and was thrown into the Spanish Civil War on the side of the Nationalist forces against the i-16s of the Republicans. It was renowned for being nimble, as it could still shoot down more modern monoplanes if handled by an experienced pilot. A product of the early 30s, it was already obsolete by the beginning of WWII, but it remained in service with the Italian Regia Aeronautica until the end of the war where, the remaining airframes in Italian service were relegated to training duties, later replaced by modern al-metal monoplanes such as the Folgore.
