I only hope that they will do a better job than on the Reggiane 2002!

Looks nice. Appears to have a decent cockpit and wheel wells simialr to the Haseagwa 1/48 C.202. Can't wait to get my hand on one :)

Having bought the Re 2002 and the Arado Ar 196, it looks like we are in for another overpriced (in the US at least) venture in mediocrity.

Also I think the model is not the highest accuracy.
Too bad, because I think the Italeri could (once again) do better! :cry:

Italeri 1:48 MC200

Post by Aeroal » Mon May 10, 2010 3:17 am

Hello, to all,

I was in Jamieson's, Glasgow, yesterday and bought the model. It looks superb, to me, certainly a quantum leap over everything we have had before. If it builds the way it looks, I will be absolutely delighted. I say this because, although the CR42 looks good, I found it had one or two unhappy fit issues.

I have only had the time to have a quick glance at it and have a few minor comments. The engine and cowling are in similar style to the CR42, one of the areas where I had problems with the CR42. You can have deployed flaps, but the ailerons are moulded integral with the wings. Why? To save money, obviously. There is a certain amount of rivet detail on the wing which is portrayed as drilled holes. I have seen several built models of the Trumpeter Hawker Hurricane in 1:24 scale, with this detail, and it just doesn't look right, in my opinion, especially when picked out in a dark wash. Colour callouts are in typical Italeri style and lifeless artwork, with no acknowledgement of the GAVS/CMPR nomenclature.

That apart, I am pleased with the kit. No doubt rivet counters will find other faults, but it still looks to me like the best game in town, to date.

Regards,

Aeroal.

Good that the ailerons are molded in place as most people show them incorrectly. On the ground the ailerons are level, in nearly all cases.

Many modelers put them both down as if they were flaps.

Nice if flaps and elevators are separate, but ailerons shouls be left well enough alone.

It might be a "nice kit", but the PCM kit is probably a better representation.
