Machi Mc.202 Folgore (Italeri 1/72)
I haven’t post here for a while, so I decided to post the little Italian stallion I just finished today.
Machi Mc.202 Folgore (Italeri 1/72) representing a very well documented aircraft of the 51 Stormo, 153 Gruppo Autonomo, 374 Squadriglia – Sicily 1942.
Model built basically straight from the box apart for the seat belts. Painted with Gunze aqueous line.
he camouflage smoking rings weren’t too difficult as I was thinking at first. I used Tamiya XF-13 thinned with Tamiya paint retarder (1:1) and applied with a fine pointed brush.
I firstly drawn how I wanted the rings formats based on my references photos using watercolour pencils and then I brush painted over it. Using the watercolour pencils allowed me to correct any shape which might be wrong (just smudge it using a cotton bud moistured in water), before committing with the paint brush.
