I wanted to do something less well known or covered for this GB and thanks to @Corsairfoxfouruncle I can. He pointed me at the Hobby 2000 re-release of the Hasegawa Dewoitine D.520. They do two versions, one of them containing three schemes used by French forces in Africa. I was so enamoured I bought two!! This is the box: Oddly, that is the one scheme I won't be doing as it required masking and painting all those stripes yourself and I'm way too slow a builder for that.

Hi guys, I will do a Tamiya 1/48 Dewoitine D.520.It will be straight from the box, with the exeption of some PE seatbelts and different decals. The decals are from Aeromaster (set 48-095) Dewoitine D.520 collection part 2. I don't know when I will start it, but I am now commited. At the moment I am still strugeling to finish 3 models for 3 different GB's, and in about 2 weeks time there will start for me another one. Busy,busy busy. Hopefully I can finsh next week 2 models, so the pressure will be a little bit off. Cheers,
