    The airplane is rather fantasy, the markings are those of Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana (1943-1945).

    Let' say that the the airplane is an "artistic impression" of a Macchi 205........
    Proportions and general shape of the fuselage, expecially in the rear, but also in the nose, are fully wrong.... look at the blending between the cockpit and the fuselage, for example......

    Always thought that marking looked like a postage stamp!

    Just for reference there are 4 pictures of this aircraft (3 different angle shots of same aircraft including the one above) in the book Camouflage and Markings of the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana 1943-1945 on page 53
