Hello guys! It's been a long time since I've posted here. Just getting settled in my new life as a father. I decided to get back in the saddle with Fly Models Macchi M.5.

After inspecting the decal sheel, the colors of the roundels seems odd (too light in my opinion), specially the green. Is this color accurate for the Macchi M.5s used by the Italian Navy in WWI? Does anyone else have an issue with the color?

If someone has the Blue Max kit, can you scan me a copy of the instruction sheet please?

Best regards,

Jose

Hello Vince, that's what I thought. The color of the roundels of the Fly Models kit is way of. It's courious that non of the reviews I found mention it. I have Misterkit's excellent Verde and Rosso Bandeira to take care of it. A bummer really to have to paint the national markings.

I'll keep you guys posted on the progress of the M.5. It's in my to do list up next.

Regards,

Jose
