A pleasant surprise from ITALERI is the presentation of the ATR 42-500, for the friends of civil aircraft.
It consists of 54 pieces in white plastic with carved detail and 6 pieces for the transparent parts of the aircraft. There is the option to build the model with the landing gear retracted as it includes alternative parts and a base on which the finished aircraft can be placed.
There are decals for three aircraft, two Italian and one Mexican. At this point we should mention that the kit could be the base for the construction of an aircraft of the erstwhile Olympic Airways, with extra decals from a new Greek manufacturer and some minor modifications to the existing kit.
