Overall an easy to build, fun kit, I took my time to lower the flaps and horizontal stabilizers accordingly to the references I found on the internet, I riveted the model and re-scribed the lower wing panel lines because they looked too shallow.
Mistakes were made, after applying primer, all the rivets and upper wing panel lines that I didn't re-scribed were lost, I didn't want to spend a couple of hours trying to fix this, so I decided to give the illusion with weathering and oil paints, in the end, the effect is very subtle, but that's it, overall I think it's just fine, and from a few meters, the model looks good.
I represented Major Mario Bonzano's aircraft from the 20th Fighter Group at a Belgian airfield in 1940.
This weird chipping around the cockpit area was caused by a protective tarpaulin, which held moisture on places that were in contact with the fuselage, basically, it was caused by moisture, regular mechanic abrasion, and unusually low temperatures.
Camouflage was made with custom mixed paint.
The light brown top color was mixed using Tamiya Desert Yellow (XF-59), Red Brown (XF-64), and Flat White (XF-2) in a proportion of 6:2:2
For the green mottling, I used Tamiya Dark Green 2 (XF-81)
And the reddish-brown mottles were mixed by Tamiya Flat Red (XF-7), Red Brown (XF-64) and Desert Yellow (XF-59) in a proportion of 4:4:2
