(1/7) > >>

MAT:
It's the spring of 1946, Due to the failure of the Anzio landing, the northern half of the italian peninsula and Rome is still in the hands of the forces of The Third Reich and Repubblica Sociale Italiana, but Il Duce Benito Mussolini has for health reasons - moved his goverment to the Salo on the shores of Lake Garda.

Here he's busy planning to hit back on the allied. His favorite targets are Malta and Gibraltar. But to hit these targets his airforce - Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana needs long range bombers and escort fighters. 

Enter Macchi C.205 Bifosoliera. This aircraft was based on the very succesfull C.205 Veltro and was very quicly put into production. In the spring of 1946 they entered service and were escorting the bombers attacking Gibraltar in support of the spanish invasion of The Rock.

My What-if model will be based on an old Frog Macchi C.202 Folgore, a leftover fuselage and pieces found in my private scrapyard.
