Pavla U48-38: Macchi C.200 I serie




Scott Van Aken


resin. For the Italeri 1/48 kit

Those who read the preview Pavla review were probably wondering about why there was a cockpit set for an early MC.200 when Italeri doesn't do one. Well this particular set will backdate that Italeri kit to the earlier version with the full, enclosed canopy. The set includes two canopies (sectional so that the cockpit can be displayed), a backlight section with the small rollover frame, a larger rollover frame, new prop blades, hub and spinner. Also included is a new rudder, tail wheel doors and the long skinny things are canopy rails with smaller front and rear pieces to blend that into the fusealge.

Also included are markings (minus insignia which you can get from the kit) for four aircraft. The instructions are quite well done with information on what needs to be removed to install this set and on all four markings options.  A great backdate set and one that  you should seriously consider.
