The Aeronautica Macchi C.204 ("C.202 Isotta Fraschini" originally) powered by a 900hp Isotta Fraschini Asso XI L.121 upright V-12 engine was designed during autumn 1940 as an indigenous Italian-built alternative to the difficult to produce well as expensive 1,175hp Alfa Romeo RA.1000 R.C.41-I Monsone license-built Daimler-Benz DB 601 inverted V-12. A wooden mockup of the fuselage nose with a mounted Asso XI was built but further development was abandoned after calculations showed the type's performance would be subpar to Monsone-powered C.202s.

The 1/72 scale SEM Model C.204 72810 Resin Conversion Kit for the Italeri C.202, C.205 or Hasegawa C.202 kits comes with a one-piece fuselage & propeller spinner resin parts, vacuformed plastic canopy ones and water decals for a Regia Aeronautica Italiana kit build. The build was easy thanks to good castings and high-quality decals though additional ones were taken from SKY Models 72-014 Macchi C.202 sheets, Aero Detail 15 Macchi C.202/202/205 (Dai Nippon Kaiga Co. Ltd. August 1995) being referenced for location placements.
