  1. Hello everyone!

     

    I hope these three skins are close enough to historicity and they like you.

    The Greek Spitfire, unfortunately, lacks the anti-sand filter ...

     

    Good fun!

     

     

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

     

    Ciao a tutti!

     

    Spero che queste tre skins si avvicinino abbastanza alla storicità e che vi piacciano.

    Lo Spitfire greco manca, purtroppo, del filtro anti sabbia...

     

    Buon divertimento!

     

     

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

     

    Γεια σε όλους!

     

    Ελπίζω ότι αυτά τα τρία δέρματα είναι αρκετά κοντά στην ιστορικότητα και σας αρέσουν.

    Το ελληνικό Spitfire, δυστυχώς, δεν διαθέτει το φίλτρο άμμου ...

     

    Διασκεδάστε!

  2. Hello everyone!

    Two skins of the Bf 109 E of the St.III JG 27. The first is of a Bf 109 E-4b and the other
    a Bf 109 E-7 Trop. The second I made especially for the catchy combination of colors,
    because the lack of anti-sand filter would have to make me give ...

  3. Hello 150GCT_Pag,

    indeed one on the left looks like a big toy of Corgi Toys ...
    On your own post (http://www.150gct.it/static.php?file=static/Colore6.htm)
    I had already read about the larger spots that applied the SAI but, under?
    From what little I could guess, the pattern was more similar to Breda to
    Macchi, camouflage also over much of the fuselage lower.
    Even the well-known "Colori e schemi mimetici della Regia Areonautica 1935-
    1943" I could not find convincing the news, and annex not illustrate the lower
    parts.
    Dark olive green spots large, regularly arranged and sparser, trademarks
    Piaggio on the propeller, rudder white cross extended, could be true coloring
    "under" specimen attached below?
    Really thanks for your help!

     

    Italian translation:

     

    Qualche volta traduco in italiano perchè, pur capendo le ragioni della lingua
    inglese nel forum, mi sembra buffo scrivere in inglese ai connazionali.
    Già, per dove vivo, parlo greco tutto il giorno... Scusa il preambolo.

    Ciao 150GCT_Pag,

    in effetti quello a sinistra sembra un giocattolone della Corgi Toys...
    Su un tuo post (http://www.150gct.it/static.php?file=static/Colore6.htm),
    avevo già letto a proposito delle macchie più grandi che applicava la SAI
    ma, il sotto? Per quel poco che sono riuscito ad intuire, lo schema era più
    simile ai Breda che ai Macchi, mimetici anche su gran parte della fusoliera
    inferiore.
    Neanche sul ben noto "Colori e schemi mimetici della Regia Areonautica
    1935/43" sono riuscito a trovare delle convincenti notizie, e nell'allegato
    non illustrano le parti inferiori.
    Macchie verdi oliva scuro grandi, regolarmente disposte e più rade, marchi
    Piaggio sull'elica (se fa testo), croce bianca del timone estesa, potrebbe essere

    veritiera la colorazione "sotto" dell'esemplare che allego?

    Veramente grazie per il tuo aiuto!

  4. Hi 4SCTVespa,

    ...so I assume that the SAI Ambrosini, even in time of war, did not change the
    Piaggio of the propellers, as they did in most cases Macchi and Breda.
    My curiosity is the fact that I find it hard to recognize 202 of the SAI and thought
    that the Piaggio had been left alone by the SAI, and 202 with the brand propeller
    were the SAI but, comparing MM, was not matching.
    So what makes me recognize an MC 202 SAI? Only the larger white cross? I don't
    belive it. For example this 202, in the pictures that I attach, it has extended the
    cross but the MM the complaint as Breda series IV.
    4SCTVespa, do not send me to hell ... then for at least a month (if I'll) do not I
    will ask nothing... :blush:

    thanks ++

  5. Thanks to you geraki, I really appreciate your efforts and skin and it's a pleasure to provide some help to improve your artwork.

     

    About the 86-8 M.M. 7944, it's a I Serie Breda 86^ Sqd. 7° Gruppo, 54° Stormo ( Pantelleria ) probabily the picture was taken in may/june 1942.

    As you can see the aircraft doesn't have cooling slots nor cockpit air inlet so it cannot be a Serie V; SAI Ambrosini started production in late 1942 (july-agoust 1942 MM 7959 - 8008 / october 1942 IV Serie MM 7409 - 7458)

    The pilot in picture should be the Capt. Pietro Calistri even if Adriano Visconti too flew that machine

     

    ... and I appreciate even more your sustained efforts for the enrichment of your culture in the field!

    So the picture we see the poor Pietro Calistri ... The "mustache" deceived me and I exchanged with

    whisker of Visconti.

    If you allow me, I would take advantage of your knowledge a second time: "The propeller Piaggio".

    I see different Macchi Castoldi provided to this propeller. Was it a replacement or was fitted as standard?

    If it was fitted as standard, which used the factory and on that series of Mk 202 we find?

    Thanks Vespa!

  6. Nice skins geraki9

    About the 1-378 skin, the Light Hazelnut Brown patches were a bit smaller then in your skin, leaving more and irregular Dark Olive Green room between each patches

    MC202-(378-1)-155Gruppo-378Squadriglia-I

     

    I have to say that your paintscheme was used since there is a picture of a C.202 of Magg. Filippi, C. of 23° Group ( 3° Stormo) that shows those unusual rings...

    AYsKvzN.jpg

     

    About the Macchi C.202 86-8, in my humble opinion, the insigna and numbers on white-strip should be a bit bigger.

    About text on tail....there is no photographic evidence or documentation that proves the yellow color...for what we know the text on fuselage and tail about model and weight were painted in Light Blue or gray light blue or black, lately in white.

     

    Thanks 4SQ Vespa for constructive comments!

    As you know the photographic material is not available

    is absolutely sufficient to meet our demanding needs,

    so sometimes you are determined on deductions result

    of more or less right.

    Besides pictures in b / w do not help us and those few

    Color, films made with Ferrania, confuse us.

    The most correct way would not achieve, if not

    it is in possession of evidence but pragmatic, passion

    it leads us to want too ...

    For example to 86-8 Visconti some say that was

    a SAI Ambrosini V series but, camouflage and pattern

    it would demonstrate a freshman Breda series I.

    He will have had both? It would be worthwhile to try

    with a seance!

    I will check the RGB color well, so how will I

    for your other comments.

    Thanks again!

     

    Hi...geraki

     

    ------------------------Italian translation--------------------

     

    Grazie 4SCTVespa per le costruttive osservazioni!

    Come sai il materiale fotografico a disposizione non

    è assolutamente sufficente per soddisfare le nostre

    esigenti necessità, quindi a volte ci si deve basare

    su deduzioni frutto di ragionameni più o meno giusti.

    Oltretutto le foto in b/n non ci aiutano e quelle poche

    a colori, fatte con pellicole Ferrania, ci confondono.

    La via più corretta sarebbe il non realizzare, se non

    si è in possesso di pragmatiche prove ma, la passione

    ci induce a volere ugualmente...

    Per esempio per 86-8 di Visconti c'è chi dice che era

    un SAI Ambrosini serie V ma, schema mimetico e

    matricola lo dimostrerebbero un Breda serie I.

    Li avrà avuti tutti e due? Varrebbe la pena provare

    con una seduta spiritica!

    Controllerò bene gli RGB dei colori, così come farò

    per le altre tue osservazioni.

    Grazie ancora!

     

    Ciao...geraki


  7. Thank you for your approval for my work but,
    I expect from you also severe criticism to improve it! ;-)
    I'm sorry for Ventus, dan54800 and RedEye_Tumu
    cannot download the skins, however, it may be to blame
    my inexperience.
    I try to attach it again below. Please let me know
    if you still have problems or if you know that I'm wrong
    something!

     

    Ciao...geraki9

  8. Here are my first skins. I hope your comments will help me to improve my job.

    I really liked achieve them, me brought back in time, when I was doing models

    in 1/48 scale.

    I thank all the Forum and = TIA = TBear particular, that gave me a good input.
