My first Italian plane. I love their colorful scheme. I'm thinking about doing the Macchi 202 later on. Hope you like the pics

Great looking model, besides the WWII Luftwaffe the Italians had some of the coolest looking camouflage schemes.

A most impressive paint scheme that you really executed quite well. Just a hint of weathering really adds the final touch to a rock solid build.

That's nice! Did you do the mottling free hand or did you use masks for that?
Some years ago I've build the same kit out of the original Italeri box and painted the mottling "in reverse", meaning from the inside to the outside and used Revell Color Stop (liquid mask) for covering.
Btw., this aircraft is one of the few Italian that flew on the Eastern Front.

Beautiful! I have always had a soft spot for Italian planes, many were very good looking and they all had interesting and diversified camo schemes.
