MC. 200 Classic Airframes
« on: May 28, 2018, 12:59:28 AM »
I finally opened the box and fully studied the C.200 that I recently bought. The prior owner did a nice job on the cockpit and I'm leaving it just as he built it. I'm not sure if the color is just right, but I refuse to change his work.


Then I moved on to the exterior seams and decided a little more filler was needed in a few areas. My guess is that the first builder intended to finish the seams before stopping work.

I've spent a little time on this the last few days. First I fitted the windscreen to the fuselage--this was a bit tricky since it's a vacuform piece, but the fit wasn't too bad and it went well. Then I finished building up the landing gear assemblies. Classic Airframes made these from white-metal struts and photoetched doors and mounting brackets. After that, a coat of Grigio Mimetico on the gear assemblies and windscreen frames and it'll be time to start prepping for camouflage!

I think, looking at the one color photo I have, the wheelwells are lower surface grey. I will investigate!

Time for grey on the bottom and the nice white fuselage band and crosses on the tail:

Last evening I sprayed the green, then this morning I woke up early, brewed coffee and painted the mottled colors. I LOVE Italian camouflage colors!! Later I still have to spray yellow on the cowling that is still in primer.
