2. Caudron 690 (advanced trainer, scrtach build, 1/72) - "black eight", A/C N.8, Flying school at Rochelle-Laleu, June 1940

3. Caudron 714 (fighter, Heller 1/72), "white ten", GC1/145 (Polish), May-June 1940

Thank you very much mates for comments :) I appreciete it very much.

Can you expand on how you built the 690?

The basis of the fuselage was deeply reshaped Caudron 714. The same with the canopy. The very front (propeller and inlet to engine) was done as resin copy of Ca.635 and then a bit reshaped. Also the u/c. Wings - I used top parts of Ca.714, reshaped and the bottom was done from plastic card. The slots were formed from thin plasctic card. Unfortunately I did not done any photos documenting work....

Some more photos of Ca 690M (in fact 100% scratch build)
