Morane-Saulnier MS-410C.1 - Azur 1/72


Recommended Posts

I would like to show you my latest finished kit, it took about 5 months to complete. It was the first short-run kit for me.

 

The following enhancements were done:

- riveting

- drilling out in and outlets and the exhaust pipes

- thinning the trailing edges

- added more detail to the cockpit

 

Gunze paints were used: H77, H405, H325, H329

 

For chipping I used AK Worn Effects fluid.

Beautiful work on a (very) likely addition to my huge and ever-growing Eastern Front collection. I love those winter-camouflaged aircraft, especially the ones with the partial application of the white.

Absolutely amazing.

 

A very worthy winner...even the base is a work of art.

 

Dare I say the whole thing is beautifully built with an incredible..... Finnish!! :DB)

Exceptionally good work on the model, painting and the base.

Very, very nice build! You did an excellent job on the colors, markings, and weathering- not an easy task to weather temporary winter white finishes, especially in the scale, in a realistic manner,  but what you did was very convincing! I love anything in Finnish colors and markings, as their aircraft are my favorite modeling subjects. What's next?

I usally make seperate base for each of my kits, so the plain show base belongs to the Morane (as it was seen on the orginal war time photos of this particular plane). I admin its too plain, so I will add some objects , like fuel barrel, tilt, etc. to make it more busy. Actually this base belongs to a What-if aircraft, I've build some years ago:

What's next?

 

I'm thinking about to start one of these:

 

- Academy 1/72 Me-163B

- Academy 1/72 A-37B Dragonfly

- Tamiya 1/48 F4F Wildcat

- Revell 1/72 F4U-1A Corsair

, or something completely different...

 

And there are couple of kits on my bench which should finish first:

 

- Airfix 1/72 Hurricane Mk I. -  http://www.makett.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=4273&start=10

- Hasegawa 1/72 Ki-84  - http://www.makett.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=4806

- Eduard 1/48  Bf-109E-7 - http://www.makett.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=142&t=4995

Thanks a lot! The lower level of the snow is made of a mixture of white glue and cooking soda, the top is cooking soda fixed by hairspray.
