To offer a glimpse into the exceptional quality of this kit, Italeri is thrilled to share the first pictures of the box artwork, captivating CAD renderings, and a wide range of impressive features. Included are super decal sheets that provide an array of options for customization and unique markings. Additionally, the kit comes with meticulously crafted photoetched parts, adding an extra layer of realism and refinement to the final build. Accompanying the kit are striking color profiles, allowing modelers to accurately replicate the distinct liveries and markings of the Macchi M.C. 202 Folgore.

The Macchi MC 202 Folgore made a significant impact on the Italian Regia Aeronautica during its introduction. Its sleek and aerodynamic design was complemented by the powerful German DB 601 engine, which was manufactured under license by the Italian aeronautical industry. This engine, coupled with the aircraft's exceptional performance, provided the Regia Aeronautica with a formidable fighter capable of effectively engaging Allied fighters.

Compared to its predecessors equipped with radial engines, such as the Fiat G-50 and Macchi Mc-200, the Folgore boasted superior flight characteristics. Its maneuverability and speed, reaching an impressive 600 km/h, made it a force to be reckoned with. The early versions of the Folgore were armed with two 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns installed in the nose, while later versions were further enhanced with additional machine guns mounted in the wings.

The highly anticipated Italeri 1/32 scale Macchi M.C. 202 "Folgore" (kit no. 2518) will be available for modelers to experience and enjoy from the first part of August. Prepare to embark on an extraordinary modeling journey, capturing the essence of this iconic aircraft with unprecedented accuracy and attention to detail.
