This model is a single seat plane. The cockpit is glue shut. It has no pilot/crew figures included.

This model includes many little parts that need to be assembled in place. The landing gear is optional, the pieces for the extended landing gear are included as well as the wheel well covers to display the model in flight. The propeller needs to be assembled in place as well as other little antennas. The assembly needed is very simple, but due to the small pieces, patience and skill are needed.

If one wants to mount the model on the display stand, the scoop at the bottom of the plane needs to be removed as it interferes with the display stand.

This is not a toy. Recommended for 15 and up.

The Macchi C.202 Folgore (Italian "thunderbolt") was an Italian fighter aircraft developed and manufactured by Macchi Aeronautica. It was operated mainly by the Regia Aeronautica (RA; Royal (Italian) Air Force) in and around the Second World War. According to aviation author David Mondey, the Folgore has been considered to be one of the best wartime fighters to serve in large numbers with the Regia Aeronautica.
