If you missed MMP's excellent Macchi C.202 Folgore the first time around, grab this revised release.

The expanded, enlarged edition packs everything you need into one remarkably compact, convenient compendium.  Seeking specific, "serie-by-serie" Macchi manufacturing minutiae?  It's here – and more.

After a concise chronicle of Folgore design and development, MMP's contents course through "survivors" and World War II service – including captured Allied, Co-Belligerent, German, Croatian and Swiss segues.  Notes on postwar use complete historical coverage.

Text next turns to technical details – including dozens of detail shots, drawings from Folgore technical manuals, and plans to 1:48 and 1:72 scales.  Period photography – both color and B&W – season sections.  And at least 60 superb color plates by Krzysztof Wolowski and Karolina Holda illustrate this vital volume.

Strongly recommended.
