  1. TopDrawings 71 Special Edition – Macci MC.202 (9788366148222) Kagero Publishing via Casemate UK Known at the Folgore, which is Italian for Thunderbolt, the MC.202 was the most common Italian fighter aircraft of WWII, and was considered by many to be pretty much the best they had. The MC part of its name stems from its designer Mario Castoldi, who designed it around a licence built DB601 engine that was constructed by Alfa Romeo once it reached series production. It remained fairly much unchanged overall, with a short list of upgrades that centred around pilot pr
  2. SEM Model has released a 1/48th resin correction set for the Hasegawa/Eduard Aermacchi C.202 Folgore kits - ref. 48802 Sources: http://semmodel.altervista.org/en/C202corr48_en.html https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1877734912277907&id=717692698282140 V.P.
  3. MC.202 Folgore Upgrades (for Hasegawa/Eduard) 1:48 Eduard The recent reboxing of the excellent Hasegawa kit of the Folgore with some Eduard goodies brought a few comments along the lines of "It's a shame they didn't do something about the main gear bays", and now they have, as well as some landing flaps for even more detail on the underside. Landing Flaps (48907) A single fret of brass with a relatively low part count due to the captive nature of the many ribs that will be visible when the flaps are open. Initially you have to perform some
  4. MC.202 Exhaust Stacks (648281 for Hasegawa/Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin If you already have a Hasegawa MC.202 in 1:48 or are going to pick up the new Limited Edition we reviewed here, you might be interested in this little pick-me-up addition for the kit. The set arrives in the familiar Brassin clamshell box, with the resin parts safely cocooned on dark grey foam inserts, and the instructions sandwiched between the two halves, doubling as the header card. Inside are two resin exhaust stacks, which have extremely finely cast hollow pipes for a more realistic look.
  5. Hello all Here is my latest completion - Hasegawa's 1/48 Folgore, a lovely kit to build. I'm usually an out of the box builder, but I've always had a soft spot for the look of the MC202, so was tempted into the aftermarket for this one to try and add a little extra nice detail to this build. The extras were: * Smoke ring decals from Mike Grant * Ultracast resin seat, wheels and exhausts * Montex Maxi Mask for cockpit frame and some markings * EZ line for the antenna wire The fuselage band and the white tail crosses were painted on rather than using decals, and the underside wing roundels
  6. Macchi C.202 Folgore Hasegawa 1:48 The Macchi C.202 Folgore (Italian for Thunderbolt) was constructed by Macchi Aernautica as a development of their earlier C.200 Saetta. The original C.200 features an air colled radial engine, however the C.202 would feature a licence built Daimler-Benz DB601Aa engine. This along with a redesigned more streamlined fuselage would bring the speed upto 372 mph it's speed and manoeuvrability were comparable with other fighters of the time. It did have its problems, chiefly that it was under armed and was susceptible to entering dangerous spins. In addition
  7. Macchi 202 & 205 Cockpit Set (for Hasegawa) 1:48 SBS Model The MC.202 & 205 were of the same design lineage, and consequentially had very similar cockpit, with the main differences being the power plant and armaments. SBS have crafted these two very similar cockpits in a mixed media kit that contains resin, Photo-Etch (PE) and clear acetate film. The sets are different enough to warrant separate boxings, so make sure you pick up the right one. They both arrive in SBS's nice little card box, with a picture of the set on the front. Inside is a bag of resin parts, a separate card-back
  8. Dear Fellow Britmodellers I always liked those Italian colour schemes, and the Hasegawa MC202 can be had quite cheaply even as a 'combo'. I added the True details resin cockpit and wheels. I hope you like the 'Vespa arrabbiata Andrew
