Hello dear fellow Britmodellers, I collected the new AZ Model kit Potez 540 (ex-Heller/Smer plastic) in Bratislava last weekend. AZ Model instructions are sparse. There's no suggestions for the interior colors; what should they be like? Any comments welcome. I'm going to build the kit's first option in Grey/Green/Brown camoflage. Thanks in advance Roman
Hi, The second of my heavy French bombers from Republican side of Spanish Civil War is Potez 540 (the first one is Bloch 210, which I just posted). Some ten French Potez 540 were send to Spain and they formed "Esquadrilla Espagna" (Sguadron The Spain) in 1936. The key person in this was French writer and movie maker - Andre Malraux. He was volunteer there, like Ernest Hemingway or Eric Blair (who is better known as George Orwell). The markings are of machine of cpt. Mellado, Northern Front in Autumn 1936. She has individual name "Aqui te espero?" - I think it meanas "What are you waiting for?" but please correct me, if I am wrong. (EDIT '2017- it is wrong, see post by Luis Alfonso below) Decals hand painted. Narrow white stripes on side of red ones are for machine of commander. I was experimenting here with rigging - I used here steel string from guitar... Not very good idea. Similar to Bloch 210 she was also waiting long time in stash for construction - I made the model in 2001 whereas bought the kit in 1974.... Please enjoy and comment Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
