« on: February 23, 2021, 09:46:39 PM »
YES! It's over! After 18 months Veltro is finished.

I don't know what is worst - 21st CT or PCM...But well, I didn't threw in out of window   Hope you'll like it.. Airfield base will be done in next few days...

So...what was done to this Veltro:

-upgraded cockpit (scratch)

-downgrade from serie III to serie I (removing cannons for MGs)

-new gear covers

-details in gear wells

-metal Pitot's tube (home turned brass tube)

-position lights

-some intakes drilled

-new gunsight

-weld mark on exhausts

-sealing screw holes 

-AM wheels

-custom RAAF markings based on Squadron Signal Walkaround book (there is a photo of RAAF captured  Veltro)

-some minor details, antennas etc.


Girl is from Master Box Pin Up series, puppy from Tamiya Live Stock set. Bucket is scratchbuild, brush is from... old brush 

Model was painted with Mr.Hobby. AK Real Colors, Vallejo and Tamiya range. Weathering is mainly Ammo Mig.
