Brad... this will be simply a great build to follow... I think Eric Brown will be smiling down on your choice.

For me the Mc.202 is the Ferrari among the WWII birds, so my front row seat is booked. Excellent choice.

It has a very elegant look to it, like a Spitfire has a pleasing look. Brad, would you try the "smoke ring " scheme? Looks very challenging to do but so represents the Macchi.

I'm not sure what colourscheme I'll do yet. I might even build a captured aircraft.

A small start tonight. I've thinned down the fuselage sides considerably to fit the resin cockpit in. I had the one that's glued clamped at the top so I get a smooth as possible join between it and the fuselage. I have the feeling that this won't be an easy build.

Challenging builds are so much more satisfying and interesting though Brad aren't they, it's proper modelling instead of just assembling.

Haha, yeh, but I did say this was the year I was going to build all easy kits, but that's kinda gone out the window!

The PCM kits are a bit challenging as I found out on my G55 build but they do such amazing subjects so it's well worth the effort.

 

Cheers

Oh, my poor PCM G55 is sitting 3/4 built under my bed. I really need to finish it one day, just the damn thing annoyed me!

Nice mate. Yeh, I do pull it out every now and again, look at it and put it back. Perhaps after I clear off everything I'm building currently.

Exhaust stacks are now in. I had to remove a good amount of plastic and then use a little force to get them sitting close to correctly. Also positioned the other side wall of the cockpit and committed some glue there. I just had to make sure the floor fitted right before this. It'll still be a bit of a squeeze, but it should be ok.

Looks good so far. I built the 202, the 205 and the Re2005 from PCM and even if they qualify as short run, they are super kits. Take care with dry fitting and give the fuselage and wing halves a quick swipe on a piece of sandpaper flat on the table and you'll be fine. Loved them
