Good day! At the beginning of the Malta struggle, the Regia Aeronautica bore the main weight of the offensive, fighting hard against Gladiators then Hurricanes of the RAF. Italy's then best fighter was the Macchi 200 and the 90° and 91° Squadriglie from the 10° Gruppo of the 4th Stormo were heavily involved. Italeri MC 200 is looking OK but has so many errors that the model requires a lot of work to look like the original: - suppression of all the oversized rivets -replacing the interior with the Palva set -suppressed the separation of the wheels bay to built one more conform - complete and dress the engine arms and wheels bay with cables hoses etc., what the kit provides is pure fantasy - update the Fiat engine with oil lines and the propeller with the prop pitch - equip the landing legs with the break lines. - scratch build two pitot tubes using copper tubes and steel wire -scratch build navigation lights. -built the cockpit sides with plastic card and clear one for the side windows The paint job duplicates the Breda's factory one, base is Verde Mimetico 2, then blotches of Bruno Mimetico, then more dense blotches of Giallo Mimetico 4, underside is Grigio Mimetico. The plane is from the 90° squadriglia based in Gela, Sicily in November 41, right after the yellow nose band was suppressed. Best regards to you all.
