Hello, I am building models of the Macchi C.202 Folgore and C205 Veltro and need painting hints. Are there any good pics of these Aircraft on this site?
Time to dust off my files of Warbird pics...
The 5 colour ones are 202's, no colour ones of 205's though...

The Folgore (and other Italian aircraft) appears to have had two paint application patterns, aside from the various colors:
1. The underside color was applied much as on a Zero or other aircraft - the bottom grey color was painted up the bottom of the sides.
2. The underside grey was applied only to the bottom of the wings and stabilizers with a 4" wrap around from the top at the leading edge. The empennage had the top colors wrapped all way round.
