Very nice, be great to see more photos.

Agreed!  That's a fantastic looking engine, so more of the rest of the build please! :)

Love the PCM Italian offerings.   Well done.  The engine is amazing.   I’d like to see more pictures if possible?   Thanks for sharing your build with us

Ok for more pics, but as I started this it when it came out (may be more than 12 years ago) a lot of pics are not digital, as that of the engine, sorry.

PCM Macchi 200 is a very good kit in shapes and dimensions, but for me, poor in details.

Start at the front of the plane:

The propeller hub: left part are mine, right the kit one.

Copies in resin, if one day I decide to make another, not tomorrow !

The propeller: not perfect in shape and too flat.

Down is the firing mecanism through the propeller, not in the kit.

More pics,

The oil radiator, actually it's the only part I kept from the front of the kit (propeller, motor, cowl, etc.)

It was carved to put the 14 reinforcements.

To allow cylinder heads to exceed, a new cowl is made in 0,3 mm plastic card.

And hollow bumps with a small border, because on the real aircraft it was separate parts.

The cowl flaps and the exhausts with trumpet shaped exit.

On the left my motor, on the right in the kit.......

This comparison is, unfortunately, symptomatic of all the detail of the kit.
