Cal displayed his
fuselage for his Macchi 202 built from
Jerry Bates Plans. Itís one of Batesí
recent designs as we have not yet seen
another built. The kit was Laser
Cut by Holman.
Cal is using Sierra
Giant Scale Retracts and Quinton Burcar
3D Printed details such as the engine
The original plan
was to power it with a DLE-55 but it did
not fit the cowl well, so Cal is using
the DLE-35 and expects decent
performance with a Beila 18x8 3 blade
scale Bf-109 prop covered with a Tru-Turn
P-38 spinner. A cockpit kit is
expected from Brian Burcar at Dynamic
Balsa. The color scheme and
details were copied from a review of a
Macchi 202 Hazakawa plastic model kit
Cal had found through Google.
The paint is latex
paint and the graphics were made by
Callie Graphix. Cal wants to
finish detailing it before he starts to
add the weathering details.
Cal we all look
forward to seeing this on the flightline!
