Scratchbuilt 1/16 Macchi C.205 Veltro

By Patrizio Zecchin

I would like to present my Macchi 205 Veltro in 1/16 scale, completely scratch-built.

The materials used: brass tube, aluminum sheet in thicknesses 0.2 - 0.5 mm, aluminum tubes and stainless-steel rounds for the landing gear, as well as acetate for canopies.

I used Humbrol paints, Maketar masks for markings, numbers and handwritten emblems.

The decals of the black cat and coat of arms on the tail were created by scratch.

I thank Maurizio di Terlizzi for photos of the engine details, my daughter Veronica (for decals of the black cat), and Stefano Bovio ( for creating the dashboard instrumentation).
