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
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
Francois Verdu took the pictures.
