Macchi 202 serie III - 73°Sq -

Post by Will » Mon Nov 07, 2011 11:46 am

An 1/72° model from Hasegawa.

Two models in the box. I'm going to make two Macchi of 73 sq in North Africa in 1942. I don't know if the box art is true, on pictures they are various camo scheme.
I choose the D1 scheme.

Having worked with the Italeri version of the 'Folgore' it is interesting to see the Hasegawa version. You are making a nice job so far.

There's so much left to learn and no one left to fight.

Warning!
In the actual aircraft the line carved towards the trailing edge, as in the drawing. It seems you did the contrary!
