Special Hobby 1/72 Potez 25 - has it been released as Jupiter 9 radial engine version?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi!

 

Much like the title says. I bought the 1/72 SH Potez 25 TOE kit in the mistaken belief that it contains all the plastic parts for the Jupiter radial engine version, too. Turns out this is not the case. Apparently one of the frames is version specific. In the TOE case frame H containing nose parts and propeller and fuselage bottom. The TOE version kit does have a nine cylinder radial engine, though. There is frames A-D, but no E,F nor G so I am guessing those are the other version specific part frames.

 

Has the radial version been released and can one find the instructions somewhere? Did not find such thing at Hannants at least.

 

In the pinch I may be able to carve the radial  Lorraine engine nose pieces to accept the radial, too.

 


Cheers,

Kari

Same on Scalemates. Azur-Fromm released Lorraine & Hispano engined varieties, no sign of a previous Jupiter one.

Thanks and tackar!

 

I should have waited for some time then.

 

It would also pay to wear reading glasses to see what I write. I have tidied the first message a bit.

 

Stay safe,

Krai
