Here is my contribution to this group build.

As I told some weeks ago I have chosen to build the main torpedo bomber of Aéronautique navale in the 1930s. This one was developped from the Latécoère mail plane series Laté 28.

The main version (32 aircraft) was the Laté 29 with an inline Hispano Suiza 12Nbr engine and the Laté 294 was a single aircraft with a radial Gnome-Rhône 14Kers engine.

They entered service in 1934 and went on until the first round of WWII.

Patrick,

I really like the look of these two, there's a certain fineness to the 294 but prefer the in-line engine of the 290 - contrary or what?

Who actually produces the kits?

Oh and welcome to the GB!

Wez, this resin kit is produced by CMK in Czech Republic.

So far I have cut the parts and prepared the huge floats. Both lits small parts are under.
