Well I can finally call my Mc.200 Saetta Serie 1 finally done I've got it weathered and dull coated which has tied it all in rather nicely. Now to get some gallery shots taken and put up. Here are a few pics to see what it looks like now.

Looking great Jeff! I like your take on the camo I might consider trying something similar on the next camo scheme I do.

Michael we're near the end of this campaign and we have several builds that are close to completion can I garner a 4 week extension of the campaign to help them reach the finish line?

Great work gentlemen! I look forward to seeing these builds completed!



I think I can see my way clear to granting that. But that'll be it, everyone, so get cracking!

Michael

Gary,

I believe the only games in town in 1/48 are the Jays Model, Flying Machines and Falcon. Each of them according to reviews have their own challenges,(Not that I care to much for what others say. To me it is all part of the fun of modeling)
When I go to Seattle show in April I will be looking for one at the right price.(I'm cheap).

Right now all I have is the 1/72 Super Model and RS kits. Oh yeah I do have the Modelland VacuForm kit but I am not sure I will ever try to tackle that one.

Jeff,
Thank you! The shape of it it's quite nice and may tempt me again if I can find a nice enough kit from a reputable brand.

Gary,

As Chris stated, despite its short comings the model came out very nicely. Congrats. I do not have a 1/48 version of the Sagittario, I need to get me either that one or flying machines. I only have 2 different 1/72 versions.

Just a 1 image update.
Here is where I am decaling completed and working on landing gear and the rest.

Hi Gaz my thanks for your participation! The Saggitario looks good despite it being a dog of a kit. Something my late dad would call "character building" LOL. It will have taught you lessons that you'll take on to the next short run horror .... uh I mean kit.

Hi Everyone,
I have to call this Sagittario complete. It's really been hard for me to stomach working on it as it has been one disaster after another.

This campaign saved it from the bin or from laying on a shelf accumulating dust for years.







Sorry I didn't go through the weathering. I really wasn't sure what to do with the dark color scheme. I didn't want to dilute it, and the surface detail didn't really warrant bringing out.

Thank you Chris for organizing and running the campaign.

Jeff,
That looks awesome. Too bad the Italians didn't catch on to powerful engines until it was too late.

Gaz,

Even with all the problems it looks like it's coming along really well.



Here is where I am at now.
Just need to clear coat and decal next.

I saw over on STORMO website they call this camouflage "poached eggs" scheme.

Still a good looking model Gaz, you could always modulate the paint after the fact like I did. I can't wait to see what you do with it buddy! Love the airframe you chose even if the kit was something of a devil to build and detail.

Hi all,
This model is one of those where everything goes wrong. Even to a giant bead of sweat rolling from my forehead onto the model while I'm airbrushing it.

But. I. Will. Finish. It.

Some painting. My color modulation on top didn't go so well.



I really like how the ubiquitous white band offsets the dark Oliva Scuro 2. So, I added a bit on the propeller boss.



Now for details, decals, and weathering.

Jeff,
That's gonna look cool. I'm hoping some day to master the smoke ring camo without decals.

Well after about a month of life work to pay some bills. I am back to my Ro.57.
I decided to try a different painting style. I sprayed the primer, pre-shaded and then base coat of Italian sand. Instead of masking I decided to try using 3M Poster tack. I made small balls and applied them to the model then change their shape. I hope that when I then applied the Verde Mimetico II it would give softer edges and I would save some time no having to hand airbrush.
This is where I am at now.

Hi Chris,

It's a Hasegawa mold, i must say i think it's a bit soft detail. Eduard gets it stuff literally from anywhere.

Hi Jan looks really good! What's the base kit? Is it one of Eduards own or is it Italeri's or Tamiya's?

Hi Jan an extension is certainly a probability we have a little over three weeks left to run. Your kit would be a welcome addition to the campaign we'll ask the question of Michael closer to the time. So please hop on board and get a building!

Hi,

I waited to long but seeing lars, Linus and Raj I'm tempted also to pop open my 1/48 Macchi C.202 Folgore box but i'm not sure to make the deadline as i'm easly distracted, maybe early request but any change of a extension (if needed), Thanks

Hi Raj you can do it! Not an easy kit as it's aged it has developed issues but then haven't we all?? Look forward to your build well at least till the hammer falls.

Raj,
You're a brave man. Landing gear parts can be replaced by a base. Other parts...might doom a build.

I wish you luck!

This will be my entry for the GB. Picked it up for 5$ and thought it was a great bargain. And boy was I wrong....flash, gaps, broken parts, broken AND missing parts

So this build would be more of a test - of my patience. Lets see how long I last before I reach for the hammer

Well that positively sucks Linus! Sorry to hear about your shelving mishap. I thought I was the only one that had stuff knocked off walls? LOL The G.55 will be a most welcome addition to the campaign I look forward to your build.
