You are right about the 120mm star shell guns. I got too caught up with the camos I forgot about them. In any case, I've added them in both the unshielded version (1940-42) and the shielded version (43.)

From what I understand is that the Re.2000 was used as a fighter, not as a scout, and that the ships may have carried one, and two Ro.43s. I have yet to see a source stait completely one, or the other. Problem with the Re.2000 was that it was entirely a land based aircraft.

Be Much More serious, in your own research

1st operationnal test of Re.2000 onboard Littorio & Vittorio Venetto in 1942 (16 september 1942 onboard Vittorio Venetto ?)
1st experimental trials test at sea of Re.2000, onboard Giuseppe Miraglia seaplane tender, september 1941 ?

By (september ?) 1943:
- Vittorio Veneto: 2 x Re.2000 + 1 x IMA Ro.43 (1st Re.2000 carried by september 1942)
in 1940-1943, IMA Ro.43 aircrafts number n° 921, 922, 923

- Littorio: 1 x Re.2000 + 2 x IMA Ro.43
in 1940-1943, IMA Ro.43 aircrafts number n° 911, 912, 913

- Roma: 2 x Re.2000 + 1 x IMA Ro.43 (1st Re.2000 carried by late 1942 ?)
in 1942, 3 x IMA Ro.43 aircrafts number n° 931, 932, 933

Probable ? wrong (date) ? drawing from Enrr

I've repainted the Ro.43s "silver" and added the Re.2000 to the 1943 editions.

Awesome job but there are some point to fox in the camouflage.
the basic gray isn't a neutral one but it has a little portion of blue
- Littorio March 1941 - the light color is a light green and not a grey
- Italia 1944 (not made) - Full gray with a dark grey block
- Veneto - there are two version of Jume 1941 and August 1941 (plus the comment on light green)
- Veneto as in 1944 full gray with a dark grey block
- Roma 1942 is July 1942
- Roma 1943 is October 1942
- Roma both versions show the wrong side of the ship (are both the mirrored version of the other side - the two sides were not symmetric)
If you want I can provide the detailed versions of all the italian ships based on the book Italian Navy Camouflage 1940-1945

The double fish bone as shown in 41 is green. Might not look like it, but it is. The light grey color does have a smudge of blue in it. What does the 44 camos look like, a block ala KGV and Richelieu? You are right about the Roma being mirrored, as I did not find a good source that would allow me to make a good and accurate camo scheme for her.
