Here are two different scenarios for this 1/48
Macchi 205 Veltro from Hasegawa.
The model represents a 3rd series Veltro in service with Terza
Squadriglia, Primo Gruppo Caccia based on Campoformido, Italy, during
March 1944. The painting is a typical RLM 74/75/76, clearly of German
origin, which I achieved with Aeromaster acrylic paints.
The revetment above is a resin model by Verlinden,
the accessories are from Pro-modeller and Verlinden, the figures are
The picture below shows the airplane on a snowed
runway of northern Italy coming back from a strike mission, while the
second depicts it in a Luftwaffe revetment just after an hypotetical
transfer flight to Austria.
The main wheel well and cockpit were completely
rebuilt in scratchbuilt and resin and photoetched parts in this order.
I will not linger over the painting and weathering techniques I used,
these being surely well known to us modellers, just let me point out
that this one is my first model after a long time, the last being built
more than twelve years ago.
