This is Italeri 1/72 kit which I get as gift few years ago. It have several problems but can be made as good kit.

I still have the unbuild TAURO 1/48 scale model with decals for Swiss and Italian AF.
It is a very starge box. Although it looks nice and accurate it looks if fuselage and wings sections were made by different manufacturers.
Purchased the kit some 15 years ago and I don't know if TAURO still exisits.

I have seen this kit long time ago and some parts are excellent made while the some are very bad machining.

Nice work mate...
Nico Tauro seems to exist

but their macchi 202 is a kit that requires great modeling effort

And that is a nice excuse to keep it unbuilt in the box.
In time it will be a collector's item!

Hi mate,

Very nice build for a pretty airplane.

Yes, No1 -you said like this problems on a model were nothing special - and for you they are not for shure, but for beginer like me this problems will probably be a great obstacle.So I know it was not easy to build it at all.
Man, I have the greatist respect for You, Jicehem, Profa, Nico, Samurai77, Javier, Tenk (and others of course), and I have to say agin here, how much proud I am to be a memeber of this forum. :-obey

Good bless you all. :-wave
