  1. Hi, The Potez 631 was a night fighter, sometimes called "French Me 110". Was not very successful in 1940 campaign. Model presents machine No 198 (X-967) of Night Fighter Squadron (Escadrille de Chasse de Nuit) 1/13 based on South France, airfield Nimes-Garons shortly after Armistice in summer 1940, very likely in the same scheme she took part in fights. Many of Potez 631 wear doubled roundels on top - small and large, which were adopted successively. Here was a source: I used a mix of decals - some from box and some by Techmod *French Insignia and Potez 63-11 sets) , even sm
  2. Hi, I am continuing reduction of my stash, in particular the French subjects from it. Now the Loire-Nieuport LN 401, the attack-dive bomber. Sometimes called "French Stuka" for her gull wings. Not successful in operational use, though. More on this type one can read here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loire-Nieuport_LN.401 . The Azur kit had to be in my stash for 22 years, since the model appeared in 1998 ( https://www.scalemates.com/pl/kits/azur-a007-loire-nieuport-ln-411--131992 ) , and I bought when it just appeared. The kit is for LN 411 variant, which is de-marinised LN 401, ie.
  3. Hi, Marcel Bloch's bombers are well know due to their ugly shapes, although the smallest and most modern of them - the MB 131 is not that much ugly for me. Despite it relatively short time in service during 1940 campaign in France mostly they served already in trainer role. This particular machine c/n serial: N12 ( code: E-232) served in Toulouse, France, in CIB (Centre d'Instruction au Bombardement = Bomber Training Center). The painting scheme was presented by by T.L. Morosanu (TLM) here http://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/860/pics/21_3_b1.jpg I was following this scheme u
  4. Corgi issued two styles of packaging for some of their diecast aviation models. Usually they came in a sturdy box, and would contain a display stand and alternative bomb bay and undercarriage options. They would also have a numbered Limited Run certificate as these models were only produced to a limited production run. A selection of their aviation models were also issued in an economy clear plastic blister pack at a lower price, but these models tended to be of a lower standard of assembly and did not include optional position undercarriages as these would be glued in the down position,

    What airplane it is?

    Hi, In this volume: With plenty of photos of airplanes and wrecks left after 1940 campaign on French airfields there is photo of an airplane (biplane), which is not know event to the authors of the book Anybody recognize what it is? Regards J-W
  6. Hi, Spanish Cierva C 30 was an Autogyro - a kind of precursor of modern helicopters. It was produced under licence in UK by Avro as Rota and in France by LeO C30. The model I made from Azur kit (1/72) required replace of engine and propeller to be a LeO C30 No 32. So this was small conversion, howver later I notice that such like mine version was also issued as limited edition by Azur. Things like that happens.. The engine consists of more than 40 pieces The markings are from French Campaign in May-June 1940.
  7. Here is my greek Fairey Battle, the last model I've made. I hope the chipping hasn't been too excessive! I think it is the most realistic 1/72 aircraft I've completed. I started this model by Christmas, but lack of paints delayed it's finishing until very recently. More pics and a full review here; http://toysoldierchest.blogspot.com/2013/09/airfix-fairey-battle-172-ao3032-raf.html
