Here is my Macchi 200 Saetta from the first serie. This variant featured an enclosed canopy the Italian pilots disliked when first tried. In fact, the quality of the Italian perspex was so poor that it blemished rapidly, thus providing a very poor view.

As you know, Italian Classic manufacturer is one of my favourite craftsmen and this model speaks for itself. It is not easy to build, but with some care and love, it can be turned in a beautiful thing.

The scene depicts a plane from the 386 squadriglia. on which pilots are cutting their teeth. Figures are from CMK, and the paint scheme, using my Aztec 470 airbrush, is Verde Mimetico 3, with blotches of Giallo Mimetico 3, filled with Marrone Mimetico 2. Underside is Grigio Azzuro Chiarro.

All paints are from Gaston Bernal's now defunct Aeromaster series.

Francois Verdu took the pictures.
