In early 1938, the first examples were delivered to the Regia Aeronautica. Italian pilots did not like the enclosed canopy because it could not be opened quickly and as it was constructed from plexiglass of very poor quality prone to cracking, limiting visibility.[12] Consequently, in the second batch of 200 machines, an open cockpit was installed. After 1939, the main production was shifted to the CMASA factory in Marina di Pisa, Tuscany.[13]

As you can see there were only 200 with a canopy in 1938... I expect they were also modified to open pit aswell. Time is a valuble resource to the small team of devs at 1C:MG. To embark upon adding this variant would be wasteful at best.
