This was the best biplane fighter of World War II. Highly maneuverable and fairly fast, the CR.42 was put into good effect during the early phases of the war. Used by the Regia Aeronautica only briefly as a frontline fighter until the Italian monoplane designs were ready, the CR.42 acquitted itself well and soldiered on through the rest of the war as a ground attack aircraft and night fighter. The CR.42 was also sold in fairly large numbers to Belgium, Hungary and Sweden and was used by the Luftwaffe who resumed production of this aircraft well into 1944.
This high-quality series of color references is exclusively devoted to Italian WW2 aircraft. The series is edited by Giorgio Apostolo, the best known and most respected Italian Aviation Historian and the author of several authoritative texts. Each reference contains text in both Italian and English. Each book is lavishly illustrated with many color profiles replete with color specifications provided for each aircraft. Intended for the modeler but also a handy reference for specific aircraft of the Regia Aeronautica. Technical drawings ( 6-views ) are provided in both 1/72 and 1/48 scales.
