Hi, iModeler friends.
Here's my second post - Macchi C.202 flown by Capt. Franco Lucchini.
Built from Hasegawa 1/72 kit.
In 2005, I read Sky Model magazine and found Mr. Arrigo Babini's fantastic MC.202. From then, I've been dreaming of making [...]
The ancient Supermodel Macchi fighter, I used equally ancient ESCI decals markings of A/C #3 374 Squadrilia,153 Gruppo, Tunisia 1943 and Print Scale Italian aircraft camo. sheet. After applying the decals, I realized that the paint was probabl[...]
Another Axis bird! I built this one, after seeing my friend Bill Koppos' build of the same model. I like the way his came out so well, I got busy on mine. I see many of these at shows, and pretty much all of them have the smoke ring camo app[...]
This model is my attempt to paint WWII Italian D2B camo pattern. I like Italian aircrafts of that time, but this camo was a blocker. Of course it should be improved, but I'm not scared anymore.

This is the only Italian aircraft I have right now... This is the Hasegawa Macchi Mc.202 Folgore. This kit was built straight from the box except Superscale Decals. I cant remeber the squadron its from though...I did this one before I learned th[...]
I build this kit last year, it's a Machi C.205 Veltro converted into a Macchi C.202 Folgore.
In my younger years (late '80's last century) I had build the 1:48 Tauro Models, Macchi C.202 Folgore and still have that plane. Everytime a looked at [...]
Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Macchi C.202 and C.205 kits are probably the best 1/48 kits of any WWII Italian aircraft to date. Accurate, well-detailed and well fitting, there are many different decal options available for this series of kits. I did the[...]
