  1. Here's what I consider my latest completion for 2017, even if we are already into 2018: KIT: Hasegawa 1:48 Macchi C205 VELTRO AIRFRAME: AerMacchi built Macchi C205 VELTRO Serie I, 360sima squadriglia, 150° gruppo, 51° stormo MARKINGS: the wing insignia ("fasci alari"), tail crosses and code numbers were airbrushed using self produced masks; the Savoia emblems inside the tail crosses and the red alignment arrows for the variable incidence tail planes were custom printed on transparent decal film and kindly donated by Eugenio @72linerlover , the rest of decals are from the kit PAINTS: mainly Lifecolor acrylics (including the dedicated set for Italian WWII fighters), airbrushed, with the addition of Model Master Metallizer Titanium for the exhausts and Tamiya acrylics for the white bands and crosses, the codes and a few other details. The smoke ring camo is airbrushed as well, thinning the relevant paint with Vallejo Glaze Medium and spraying at a very low pressure, removing the airbrush protective cap. Many thanks to @Giorgio N for the advice on Vallejo Glazing Medium WEATHERING: mostly with tempera washes, various hues Aftermarkets: - SBS Models resin/PE cockpit set - Quickboost exhaust stacks Scratchbuilding: - Resin ailerons; my first attempt at resin casting, pretty happy with that - Supercharger intake butterfly valve, using plastic card - Oil radiators grid covers, from PE leftovers - Main U/C bay sand covers, plounge molded over gum masters (actually nade cutting them out from a Staedler pencil eraser) - Main U/C bay inner doors, from some beer can cutouts and 0.5mm styrene sheet - Undercarriage actuator arms, from steel pipe and rod - Pitot tube, using a prescription needle and steel rod - Fuel tank vent, from brass pipe - The tail plane fairings were removed from the fuselage and I molded a milliput copy to be applied directly onto the kit tail planes, because on the real aircraft they had variable incidence, so there's a gap between the fairings and the fuselage - Main wheels brake lines, using various tin and copper wires - Wing navigation lights, again plounge modling clear plastic, using the model wing as master - and stretched clear sprue to reproduce the lamps and a few other minor things. This model is the second of a double build, which involved a C202 Folgore (completed in August 2017), again from Hasegawa; here's the WIP thread, in case you're interested A huge thank you to everybody participated in the WIP thread with suggestions, encouragement, advice and even supplying stuff . Enough blah-blah, on with the pics: All comments welcome Ciao Edit: here are some family pics with the other subject of the double build
