21st Century 1/32 Macchi MC.202 Folgore

By Paulo Pereira

This is the long-known Folgore from 21st Century, which appears like a toy, because some characteristics, like the screws that close the kit parts, covered by plugs, and the unusual plastic, which not be glued by the usual glues, only by CA.

Despite these details, the kit has good fittings, and requires almost no putty.

I filled the depth of the lines, riveted the kit, improved the cockpit and made some more scratch detail.

From aftermarket, I only used the resin discharges made for the Bf 109.

The painting was made with Tamiya acrylic, totally freehand.

I found the nochiola chiaro 4 very dark, according to the references, so I brightened a little. Despite this, it was still too dark.

The colors used were XF52 lightened with XF60, XF61 and XF25.

The radio line is made with Uschi Van der Rosten's Rig That Thing.
