The Dewoitine D.510 was an all-metal, open-cockpit, fixed-undercarriage monoplane fighter aircraft, used by the French Air Force in the 1930s. They saw action against the Japanese flying for Chinese Air Force, and in North Africa. This particular kit is the Smer reboxing of the original Heller kit, which I bought as part of a job lot years ago on EvilBay, which averaged out at about a £1 a kit (what's not to like ! ) I built this to mark the 10th anniversary of Britmodeller in the Group Build, work in progress below The kit went together really well apart from me breaking then loosing the undercarriage legs, these being replaced with toothpicks from the hotel I was staying in ! And a big thanks to CliffB for coming to my rescue after I trashed 2 roundals. Let me know what you think.
Late as ever to join a GB..... i got this kit many years ago as one of those, fit for spares type listings on evilBay, downside is someone had previously butchered the box and decals, upside is at just over a £1 a kit what was there to lose ! I think this may be the old Heller one, reboxed by Smer ? cheers Pat
