With my Short Crusader build stalled while I'm away for the school holidays, I have been using the break to pause & refect ... on what to build next! I've settled on this spectacularly stylish, if somewhat under-performing, machine from near the end of the lineage of pre-war French racers: The Caudron C.561. Here I submit my inspiration, this wonderful artwork as drawn by Laurent Negroni: The above illustrations are extracted from his beautiful book 'Speedbirds 1: Schneider Trophy 1913 - 1931' which I regularly revisit again & again. And as further inspiration, this mythical contest between the Caudron & Marcoux-Bromberg R-3 Special - wouldn't that have been awesome!: From the graphic novel 'Beyond the Clouds 1: the Duel' illustrated by Romain Hugaul. or perhaps this mythical duel with a Gee Bee: Another by Laurent Negroni from his blog site: http://speedbirds.blogspot.com.au/?m=1 The kit is by POMK, at 1/48, in resin .. and it's at home .. so I can't post much more than the box art from online: So I decided to launch this thread ahead of time in order to throw a few questions out there: 1. Can anyone recommend a definitive reference book on these French racers, which might include this machine? & 2. Just which blue is the right blue!?? Thanks for looking in, and I hope to be up & running before too long! g.
