Tomorrow will spray on White Belly Band, get on with Landing Gear painting & assembly, do want to finish building it by Friday. This happily is the last FIAT A.74 Radial build - bears they'd be! - upcoming Piaggio P.XIX-powered C.200bis build closes out 50 years building Saettas. The S.B.S. FIAT G.50 resin will be my last radial-engine Regia Aeronautica Italia fighter build closing out 52 years building Freccias, should get to it early Spring.
