  1. I know Mike grant did smoke ring decals for WW2 Macchi’s. But i think i remember seeing a masking set somewhere a few years ago for the smoke rings. Am i imagining or do they exist ? Im also looking for ideas on how to do the camouflage ? Honestly I'm just not that good to free hand airbrush the camouflage. Im also looking for photo’s for when i do build the kit. Thanks to everyone in advance ? Dennis
  2. Friends, Here is the Hasegawa Macchi Mc.202 Folgore. I cannot remember exactly when I built this kit, but it`s been more than a few years ago. The highlights of this kit are as follows.............. 1. Mike Grant Decals for the iconic “spinach / smoke rings” found on the Folgore. 2. Tamiya painted tape for the seat belts. 3. Painted white fuselage band and tail cross insignia 4. Polly Scale paint : Italian Hazel Tan and Italian Lower surface gray ( WWII ) 5. Used kit supplied squadron insignia and national markings on the wings. 6. Weathered with chalk pastels. Chipping with silver paint 7. Pencils used to highlight panel lines and movable surfaces. I enjoyed putting this kit together. I had no issues at all and it was simple with all of the parts fitting together nicely. The “Rings” from Mike Grant Decals made this possible as I would still be carrying the migraine headache from trying to accurately replicate them in 72nd scale. I would recommend this kit for all ages and skill levels. I hope you enjoy the results. Thank you in advance!!!!!! Respectfully submitted, Mike
  3. 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 were done with the Montex masks. However, I found these very fiddly so reverted to the decals for the upper wings. A quick note of praise for Mike Grant's smoke ring decals, these are really thin and conformed beautifully with no hint of silvering. It was painted in Tamiya acrylics XF19 Sky Grey for the underside and XF59 Desert Yellow for the upper surfaces - perhaps not the best matches for authenticity, but that's something that I'm not too fussed about. Kept the weathering light, with just an oil paint wash to highlight the panel lines and a thin dark acrylic mix for some exhaust staining. Pretty happy with how it turned out, and really enjoyed this build. Thanks for looking Adam
