Italian Stallion…1/48 Macchi MC.205 Veltro, Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana

Built in 2013 by my dad. Hasegawa kit oob. Some of you may know that the Hasegawa Veltro isn´t correct and is something between a 202 and a 205, but it looks like a Veltro, my dad didn´t care. Seatbelts added and EZ Line for the antenna wires. [...]
