Description

 

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 from Reheat.

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.
