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).
