Italian Thunderbolt

I changed up the interior colour quite a bit compared to my recent Mac.205 build.

I used IDF Grey Green.

I also used the Sbs interior kit but a few parts were flung into space but fortunately won’t really be seen.

What's the kit interior like out of box? 

 

I've not built any WW2 Italian fighters and really should at at some point. 

 

Which markings are you doing? The middle?

They are quite intricate but also very delicate with lots of resin to trim off.  You have to be more careful than I was.  Definitely better than photoetch.

I intend on doing the middle version but I'm almost tempted to try the "fried egg" scheme or whatever its called although I may leave that for a Swedish fighter.

You caught me out with the title as this wasn't the subject I expected but nonetheless a worthwhile one :thumbsup:

The 'Smoke Rings'? Or am I looking at the wrong option?

No, it’s the top scheme with the red-brown mottling in it.  I think that’s what the Italians called it or poached egg or something like that.


Folgore in Italian means Lightning.  So I figured it’s my second type so what comes after lightning...

Pretty much everything I do is 1/48

Hi,

 

I believe it is the "poached egg" mottle as I attempted last year on a 1/72 Revell Macchi MC 200.

I think it needs to have a denser mottle but my hands were not up to it. The same probably applies to my smoke ring effort on the MC 202. For some reason I always seem to struggle to get my mottling looking random, particularly on small kits. It was a bit better on this

which, being Africa based, would have qualified for this GB if I had not built it already!

 

Good luck with yours,

 

Pete

Interior finished.  Lots of hassle getting the control panel to fit but I did it finally.

Next is to close up the fuselage but I need to get that seat right.
