    I have only one of these built yet and is in 1/72 or is it the 202??Well I like the style and lines of alot of the Italian birds and there ships as you know of the Pola build.This plane belong to a Magg.Adriano Visconti of the 1st Sq 1st Gr.C.T.(MM92219) other than that really do not know much more.This guy comes with it's own engine whilist the mouldings do have a far amount of flash but not something that cannot be overcome.The build will be out of box for the most part with a True Details pit designed reallly for the Hasegawa kit.

    Model >Tauro Macchi MC 205

    Scale >1/48

    Level >Intermediate

    Improvements >True Details Pit and maybe,maybe Engine plumbing


    One thing I love about the Gruppe builds is that it is making me build kits I might of left alone and challenging meand for that I say Thanks!!

    Nice! There's something about the Veltro, don't know what, but I've always liked it - and I know sod all about Italian WW2 aircraft!

    It probably will be Wayne in some regards I definitly need to obtain a book for some reference on the engine area and how the cover actually comes off.The info there will determine if I go buy the Daimler out at Joe's shop if this one looks too bust after built.This little kit has 120 pieces quite the lot for a 1/48 but as I mentioned in the first post the Gruppe builds are forcing me to expand and play some.Cheers Kevin

    That Tac-Recce F-6A Mustang under the Zero in the PTO thread might be the 2nd entry depending on how fast this one goes it has some nice Brit markings and camo(tan green)

    I love the italian fighters, they were ugly as sin with the radial engines (C.200)

    but when they stuck the inline Daimler engines in and gave them a nose-job, they became beautiful!

    Yes and no! Love them as well, not the most beautiful of aircraft designs, but, they did have a certain charm, well most of them anyway....

    Bit like some of the wine I suppose - a bit rough round the edges, but flows smooth and quick!!
