    Hi mates
    Another one by me, this one is a Regia Aeronautica Macchi C.202, 70^sqd 23°gruppo 3°stromo from St. Cerveteri.
    The kit is a well known Hasegawa with Eduard PE and some scratch-building - inserted the DB601 engine from the Eduard's 109E, which was quite easy and made the gun fairings behind it and riveted it all around...The decals are SkyModels which are very good to apply and printed great but inaccurate on the other hand - the fasci insignia is way too large. I painted the camo with the help of some template masking for the blotches which proved to be quite tricky.
