hi guys

 

here is my last work. This is a whatif for his fictional plane, based on the prototype VG33 , produced only in few number just before the fall of France in 1940.

 

if she were produced one or two years before, she maybe would have equipped some squadrons.

 

she wears the colors of a Curtiss H75 of GC I/5 in the beginning of 1940 ; the pilot was Edmond Marin La Meslée. i just improved the kit, the interior cokpit and some details.

 

the worst part came from the canopy wich was completely unusable....yellow color. i spent a lot of time to vacuform a new one, many tries....here is the result, hope you like her :

Whif only by a hair's breadth; a couple had already arrived in an operational squadron (GC 1/55). Just some weeks more and they might very well have flown in those colours.
Beautiful model of a beautiful plane!

Nice model! I did not realize Azur did one of these in 1/48. If you squint a little, you can almost see a Macchi Mc-202/205.

Lovely build I think you have done a great job on the painting. If the saying "if it looks right it will fly right" is true then this would have been a fantastic fighter.

I totally agree with you, one way to scratchbuild this plane is to use the MC202 as a basis, with some parts of the Spitfire mkXVI. I Saw a VG33 done like this at 1/32 scale, she was very accurate.
