Sweet 1/144 Machi Mc.200 Russian front.


Here's my first completed Sweet kit and one which was quite difficult to take pictures of.
Went with this one first because it was the only Machi Mc200 which i had all the paints for, which is really plain olive green compared to some of the other Italian paint schemes.


Something usual about this kit is the the exposed area after the landing gear has extended it actually a decal. All the other kit from Sweet have had proper open landing gear but because i reckon this is one of the first kit there is none of that and no cockpit either.


I lost a propeller while making this, very strange looked every where for is but just can't find the thing. Sure i put it on the window sill while i applied a clear cote outside then came back to get it and alas it gone, wonder it it was the cat?


I plan i having little dioramas for most of my kits but as the was the first i reckon i can do better on the next one and use this as a practice.
Been trying to find little wooden display bases but have had very little luck finding any that ain't huge compared to a 3 inch long plane.

It's very detail taking consideration that it a plane of small scale. Nice work!

I check out other model kit and this little kit has as much deyail as a 1/72.
