R.A. Aer. Macchi MC 202 "Folgore" 4K Skins

Recommended Posts

 

In this Forum a lot has already been written and published on the topic "FOLGORE".

Some skinners who are passionate and "Experten" connoisseurs of the thorny subject have shared real masterpieces with the community.

Inspired largely by their work, I humbly tried to bring all the unusual beauty and unmistakable style of this Italian stallion into 4K.

Admirers and purists rivet counters should not be angry if they see mistakes in my skins, rather they are not afraid to report any omissions or possible corrections.

This is my first attempt in the territory of Macchi 202 and in the endless minefield of its multiple liveries and their more or less correct pictorial representation.

Well aware of my limited technical and historical knowledge relating to this beautiful airplane, I still hope to do something pleasant in presenting

my personal interpretation of the "Folgore" in service with the Regia Aeronautica.

Skins are based on 4K template of ICDP

As already said, any criticism, correction and / or suggestion will be very welcome.

 

Hope you like !

Obviously when we talk about Macchis,  given the heraldic and coloristic complexity of the subject, I am forced to consider the relative skins as a perennial W.I.P.

Even now, after the usual brainstorming with my friend geraki9 whom I publicly thank again here, some small but fundamental inaccuracies have emerged, that I have promptly corrected.

(the link now points to the correct version)

 

 

WARNING !

 

For a stupid blackout of mind I uploaded some skins that had very evident imperfections.

Unfortunately, only now I realized the mistake and I apologize so much.

I invite those interested to download the following revised and corrected skins again:

 

Niclot Doglio 

Ennio Tarantola

Gualberto Benzi

Luigi Gorrini

Luigi Filippi

Andrea Favini

Hi RAP, Ennio Tarantola was at the time an importer of bananas from Africa. When he enlisted in the Regia Aeronautica, he wrote "Dai Banana" on his Macchi 202 for this reason.😉

What a brilliant story. I love stuff like that! I did a couple of notable Folgores in the Skinhouse... One of them is the painted version of the prototype that's in the defaults... they're down the bottom of the first page... I'm not trying to step on your toes @SARFlytitus!, just plonking some more versions of this beautiful machine in here is all.

The liveries of the Regia Aeronautica are always a question of Love / hate ...

Anyway, here's another one!

I hope you like this subject too!

OMG! SARFlytitus My friend! This time, you have exceeded all my expectations.
When I started in aviation, years later, I traveled to the United States, to New Jersey, being there they decided to take me to Washington D. C to see airplanes in the (Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum), in those years my favorite airplanes They were from the First World War, although some from WWII, I also liked them, but when I got to see the planes that I liked from WWII, I no longer had film in the camera. so the only plane that I could photograph was the MC 202 FOLGORE, which they have hanging above a P51.
brings back many childhood memories.

Any image unearthed who knows where the "Grail" for a poor archaeologist-skinner may be ...!

... and I don't remember seeing this one before.

Thank you so much my friend.

Fantastic 😍!

 

Again a big thank you to you AND all the other skinners! 👍

 

Just as a side not, I thought 374 Squadriglia belonged to the 153 Gruppo of the 54 Stormo ?

 

Happy to be educated if I'm incorrect.

my friend SARFlytitus ! I don't have any more words to show my amazement!
Not only for the quality and good work, but for the quantity and the Search for History. The Italian Pilots, which are the great unknown by many aviation enthusiasts buried under thousands of writings, about American, German, English, Japanese Aces, and so many more. THANK YOU
