  1. Thank's, Pete. According to Scalemates this was boxed as new tool in 1986 under the KP brand. It did reappear more recently branded Smer with exactly the same box art. Thanks, Russ. Your comments are always appreciated.
  2. Hi, Jerzy. You may well be correct. My information came from Wiki, which as we know may not be the most accurate. This is what was printed; 'The Spanish Republic acquired 2 units thirty days after the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. 'These units were sent to Barcelona. Later, 30 units more were sent by ship and assembled in Air France's workshop at Prat de Llobregat.' Best regards, Vince
  3. Thanks, Chris. You should build it. Despite it's flaws I quite enjoyed it. It has a bit of fuselage interior detail to make it more interesting. Thanks, FB. Certainly is a bizarre looker. Thanks, as I said earlier, a difficult kit but quite enjoyable to build. Certainly is an ugly duckling.
  4. The Bloch MB-200 was a French built bomber which went into service in the 1930s with the French, Czechoslovakian and the Spanish Republican airforces. It didn't fare well in the Spanish civil war and by the end of hostilities their entire complement of 32 aircraft had been destroyed. Despite this, it saw service with the Vichy French up to 1941 where it was used against Allied forces in the middle east. I found the kit quite challenging in terms of fit, quality and probably my own ineptitude, but it did come from my 'last century collection'. I think I used more filler on this model than any other and had to buy a new set of modelling files to finish the job. Good investment btw. Made by Draper £6.00 from Amazon. The clear parts were truly awful, especially the fuselage windows. Too thick and cloudy and impossible to get to sit neatly. I finished up poking them out and using 'Glue & Glaze'. Not ideal, but better than the original perspex. Finished with the box supplied Czechoslovakian Air force decals and painted with Revell Aqua. Thanks for looking, Vince
  5. Lovely pair of Spitfires, Vlad.
  6. That's a beauty and such great detailing on a 1/72
