Thread: The Warbirds Replicas Macchi C.202 is Landing!

Personally, I'll be using old fashioned heavyweight tissue & either WBPU paint or regular dope.

Wow Brian, That really leaves me for dead! Since mine will be a C.205, I'm still modding the tail section to accept a Robart mini tailwheel retract. rob122-450.jpg

I'm using a Dynam Bf-109G type spinner, which has the ideal shape, all I needed to do was modify the prop nut which was shortened by 3mm, bored out & threaded to 10x1.5mm to accomodate the prop driver. The motor is a 400kv Turnigy G60 which I'll run on a 6s 4000 or 5000mah pack, depending on which one gets the CG right. As for the prop, it'll be a MAS 16x8 3 blader.

The only mod after all that will be the beer barrel shaped radiators under the cowl and the addition of the wing cannon.

Looking good Brian! As for me and as a matter of personal preference, I'll kick off the build with the fuselage. All the parts have been matched up to the drawing and I daresay I've never seen such beautiful laser cutting. The parts have no charring anywhere. Save us lots of time in sanding the bits in order to have a good surface for glueing.

As for the build, in dry fitting the parts, everything slots together beautifully. No issues whatsoever. All I have to do now is try and catch up with you Brian (fat chance)!

Looks easy, just the thing for either a newbie or a dyed in the wool balsa basher!

For whoever's interested, here's a link to a virtual tour of the Italian Aviation museum located near Rome. There's also a few pics of both the Macchi C.202 and 205. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hHwUsPj7Z8#t=157.930521

G'day folks, first off I'd like to say I'm honoured to participate in this build. As an Aussie I'm tempted to build a C.205 which in 1943 was captured in Sicily personnel of No. 450 Squadron RAAF and subsequently serviced by the squadron's fitters.81_1.jpg
