First Look

Stormo! is a comprehensive online resource for Italian Air Force subjects from World War II. With all of the information that has been compiled there, it was only natural that they produce some decals to cover some of these subjects that get overlooked by other decal companies. In this installment, we have seven Macchi C.205V Veltros that were flown by Italian, German, and Croation Air Force aces. This decal set comes on one sheet and provides markings for the seven aircraft:
