Trumpeter's 1/72 scale J-15 Flying Shark is available online from Squadron

 

Description

 

Here is Pacific Coast Models' 1/32 scale Macchi C.205 Veltro III Serie.

This is a Macchi 205 of 2 Squadriglia “vespa arrabbiata”,1°Gruppo, ANR, Campoformido airfield (Udine).

 

 

I built this kit with extensive modification of the landing gear and fuselage.

 

 

Rebuild in resin by my brother Marco, spinner, propellers blades, wheels.

 

 

The camouflage consists of standard Macchi metropolitan scheme in "smoke ring Verde Scuro Tipo 2" on standard brown “nocciola tipo 4” from acrylic Italeri 4643AP and Tamiya Grey XF-19.

 

 

The aircraft does not have the white band in the fuselage because of the new provisions to improve concealment on the ground.

The unofficial version is because it was the old symbol of the Regia Aeronautica and too much like a white flag of surrender.
