Mc.202 metal or fabric covered

Recommended Posts

Were the ailerons, elevators and rudder covered with metal on the Mc.202 or were they fabric? Or was it a combination of the three?

This is what Wikipedia says, for what it's worth:

 

  • The Macchi C.202 Folgore was an Italian fighter aircraft, developed from the earlier C.200 Saetta; its principal difference was its use of an Italian-built version of the German Daimler-Benz DB 601Aa engine and the adoption of a revised streamlined fuselage. Both the wing and fuselage structures were of a conventional metal design, having a single vertical tail with two elevators, and a wing of relatively conventional design with two main spars and 23 ribs. The ailerons, elevators and rudder were metal structures with fabric covering. Apart from the ailerons, the entire trailing edge of the wing was dominated by a pair of all metal split flaps.

I didn't expect it to be there, either, I just started fishing after I couldn't find the airframe manual that I have somewhere for the Folgore.  :)
