Maurizio di Terlizzi brings the weight of his technical understanding
and his superb modelling skills to all of his books. Aviolibri Special
No. 5, "Macchi MC.200 Saetta - Part One", clearly
demonstrates these traits.
This book is pitched specifically at the modeller. It is packed with
detail and operational photos of this beautiful aircraft. The text
briefly describes the development of the prototype, operations,
camouflage and markings.
Six colour profiles provide examples of the
wide range of schemes seen on the Saetta. This reference material is
rounded out with scale drawings of the prototype and Serie I aircraft.
Another highlight of this book is the author's analysis of the 1/48
scale models from Astrokit and Classic Airframes. These articles are
supported by colour photos of the models completed and under
construction. The text contains some helpful hints to ease construction
and improve the accuracy of both kits.
Text and captions are presented in both Italian and English. The
English text is slightly quirky (presumably as a result of literal
translation), but quite easily understood.
"Macchi MC.200 Saetta - Part One" will be a valuable
resource to modellers building either the Astrokit or the Classic
Thanks to Ken at Pacific
