Re: ANR Veltro 15-2

To complete what said Vince about the 15-2, it was the MM 92276 and it seems it was flown by S.Ten. Aurelio Morandi (at right of Visconti in the photo) on 19 April 1945. That day, Morandi shot at and badly damaged a B-24 (s/n 42-50428, 859th BS, Cpt Sutton) near the Swiss border, but was hit by ret...

Re: Airbrushes, Paint, and smoke rings

I'm going to use my new Mr. Hobby Ps-770 with the .18 needle. I was reading that Mr. Hobby Aqueous runs much better for detail using their solvent Mr. Color Levelling thinner. I'll try that and see how it goes! I also have lots of Polly Scale paints left, but I was under the impression they did not ...

Airbrushes, Paint, and smoke rings

I'm sure this has been discussed a million times, but I was curious what the experts here use for smoke rings and mottling like in the gray scheme ANR planes. I prefer to use Mr. Hobby Aqueous paints, and what do you guys use for thinner? The alcohol based thinner from them, or the Mr. Color Levelin...

Re: ANR Veltro 15-2

Sorry about that, I get so many questions about Visconti's mounts that I assumed you were referring to 15-2 as his plane. The photo in the cornfield next to the taxiway was taken at Vicenza July-August 1944. In late March 1944 ANR LW 74/75/76 colors were applied to C.205Vs with a thin white band (4...

Re: ANR Veltro 15-2

Hi Edward, Welcome to Stormo! and thank you for your post. I don't think cap. A. Visconti flew 15-2, his unit was 1a Sq., 1o Gruppo CT but Stefano might have more to add here. The two ANR C.205Vs that Visconti is positively identified with are 19-1 and 3-1 with photos. I know he didn't fly it, but ...

ANR Veltro 15-2

Hello everyone, new member here. Don't know why I took so long to join here! After I finish my current project, I'd like to do a Veltro, specifically the one numbered 15-2 from 2a, 1GC that has been shown in a few of the publications that we all use with Adriano Visconti next to it.. It's a really i...
