From the manufacturer:

The Reggiane Re. 2000 fighter was designed by Roberto Longhi and Antonio Alessio in 1938 as a result of Longhi's visit and study in the USA Aircraft manufacture during 1936 - 37. A meet with Alexander de Seversky during the build of the contemporary P.35 gave Mr. Longhi information and technology for his future fighter project. The Re. 2000 was accepted for production by Regia Aeronautica and prototype was ready to fly on 24 may 1939 at Reggio Emilia.

Apart from the engine, new fighter was very similar to the P.35, and during test flights held in Guidonia it gave an excellent performance, and on several occasions, it performed better than other fighters like the Fiat G.50 or Macchi Mc.200. It served mainly at Palermo-Boccadifalco airport in Sicily, with 377a squadriglia interceptors and some Fiat CR.42 night fighters.

A small batch has been used by other countries. Hungary and Sweden have adopted the Re.2000. About 70 aircraft have been sold to Hungary and served against Russia. Other 60 machines have been sold to Sweden, which currently is the only country with a unique and original Re.2000 aircraft restored in the museum.

The main parts of this plastic kit are reinforced by iron.
