    @SodiumChloride It takes some getting used to, but you seem to have all the other stuff figured out!

    @SodiumChloride not talking about War Thunder. CR-42s used 7.7mm machine guns only in the first dozen of aircraft produced, then they were quickly replaced by 12.7mm ones, but because of the lack of machine guns, some even used one of each, until new replacements got available.

    You've certainly captured a lot of detail, and the final results look great. However, I must complain about your attention to scale. Not only is this thing twice as big as it should be, but the wings are much too small. Anyway, keep up the good work, you've got a lot of talent and I look forward to your next plane.

    Thanks @LeonardoEngineering early versions of the cr 42 were armed with 7.7mm, like i mean the really early version, and the guns were probably replaced with the 12.7mm

    You dont see the 7.7mm version in War thunder cause it ruins balancing

    Fiat Cr42s were armed with two 12.7 mm Breda SAFAT machine guns, not 7.7mm. Nice build by the way! Oh and @ASDFASDF1 , those jokes died 15 years ago :)

    If I am not mistaken, this was one of the fastest biplanes ever made, if not the fastest.
