Very nice choice.

Don't know if you've seen this, but it does provide a different option regards the wheel wells: http://www.hyperscal...c20532mdt_1.htm One point of note, he does mention about the kit wheels being inaccurate, but these are the plastic ones, not resin

Hey Wumm, Glad to see someone else tackling one of these things.....They are a tough series of kits to conquer, as I am living proof of that, but well worth it. If you run into any problems, or need advice on something just shout- I am finally in the home stretch now, and I am thinking about making a proper list of my build experience of the kit, instead of it being spread out over tons of pages in the member builds section.......

anyway- Good Luck- Looking forward to your progress!

Steve,
Grigio Azzuro Chiaro 1 is the underside color your cockpit should be Verde Anticorrosione. Having said that some Macchi built aircraft did have a light gray interior,but this is lighter shade than GAC 1. I believe I've seen one photo of the 205 cockpit in light gray ,but this example was taken of a post war export aircraft.As Matty mentioned try to find a copy of AeroDetail #15,also Ali D'Italia #27,as well as Squdron's new Walk Around Macchi C.205 Veltro.There are several other that at the moment I can't remember the titles,take a look a PCM's web site in the Books section you'll find them there.If needed I could also make copies for you if needed too.
My vac Macchi 202 is stalled for now,too many project ongoing for the museum plus a couple for myself too.I hope to get back to the Vac Macchi sometime before too long though.
Regards,
Gregory Jouette

Hi Steve,

BS283 Grey Green could be a good choice for the cockpit - maybe a touch lighter.
LIFECOLOR offers a wide range of Italian WWII colours. One of those, UA116 (Verde Anticorrosione), is a pretty light shade tending to Duck Egg Green.

Ali D'Italia #27 features a few b/w shots of the cockpit side walls and other exterior details, e.g. engine mounts, oil radiators, etc.

PM on the way.

Cheers,
Erik

Dave,
AeroDetails#15 covers all three Macchi's 200,202 and 205.If you need more info on the Macchi's i'd be more than happy to scan it for you.

It is a tad light, but I've used it and think it achieves the desired effect. Whether it's 'right' or not is not a question for me.

You might want to rethink anticorrosion green for the interior. If you go to the Stormo site and look for the discussion about this,there is some belief that the interior for the 205 may be grigio azzuro chiaro or a gray very. similar. The Tavola10 reference will lead you to this in the camoflage and color area.
