Dear fellow Britmodellers,

here's my 1/72 AZ Model Potez 540 Transport, a re-box of the venerable Heller kit.

The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics.

All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.

 

I would like to thank fellow Britmodellers TonyTiger66, VG33, BS_w and Graham Boak for their help in research.

Much appreciated!

It looks awesome! Do you have a build thread for it somewhere?

 

A detailed build report will be featured in an upcoming edition of Scale Aviation Modeller International.

Hi My Dear Friend Roman!!!

Congratulations for this great gem you have done with this CLASSIC kit!!!

C'est Magnifique!!!

 

I remember this is a highly demanding kit and have watched along procession of modelers here that left aside this great kit because the patience were the most scarce virtue to build a kit like this one. I have watched one that was going from hand to hand until a guy that was so partience and invested a lot of love and care in the build ended one. You are the second I watched and believe has the same values invested in the build.  I liked the colors you have used and the way she looks resplendent, for sure will be a show stopper and a  build that make smile more than one in any contest or show with this Best in Show!!!

 

For sure, will be looking for the detailed build report that will be featured in an upcoming edition of Scale Aviation Modeller International, for sure the time you have invested in her is very well invested and the guys at SAMI will be ore than happy with this nice masterpiece gracing their magazine pages!!! Thank you very much for sharing!!!

 

Cheers,

 

Luis Alfonso

Very nice indeed, it just shows what can be achieved on an old mound with many felling skills.

Hi My Dear Friend Jerzy!!!

I'm happy to know about you too!!!

Hope soon you can have a go to your POTEZ, as always any one of your projects look interesting to watch and admire!!!

 

Have been deling with many things here but hope to stay here looking as time permits. All things had been well here where I live, only dust and sand to worry about. Thank you very much for asking. Soon will send you a mail as have some questions about the PZL P37 LOS... have been thinking in build this one and think your expertise can be very useful in this case. Also have been looking for an AVIA B135 in this side of the pond but found a KP kit cheaper here locally and think it must be easy for me to deal with this oldie as you have done with yours.

Cheers!!!

Beautiful job, Roman! I have the old Heller kit, which I'm going to build as a Spanish Civil War aircraft; it will not come out as well as yours.

 

Regards,

Very nice build.  Received a kit of the Heller version from the Big H this morning, quite surprised how good the moulding is, very clean plastic with hardly any flash; giver the age of the mould.  Robin.
