A classic Heller kit, if ever there was one.

I built one of these back in the day and have always intended to build another.  Now is the time. 

 

A nice simple kit in the usual Heller style with very fine raised panel lines.

The kit was originally issued in 1978 but this is a later boxing from 1996.  The decals seem to be holding up well.

 

There are two marking schemes available, the wartime camouflage shown on the box-art and a pre-war overall silver scheme with the Grim Reaper on the fuselage sides.  I haven't decided which to build yet.

This little beauty is a favourite of mine, and I'll be throwing one into the GB myself at some point. I just need some serviceable decals. Looking forward to following this one!

Hi Enzo,

 

a great little kit which I really like.

Built it sometimes in the mid-nineties, and because I wanted it green on top, I had to paint by hand 2 new decals of the skeleton in white, along with the numeral 5!!!

Now that was fun!

Keep your sanity, do not do it!

There will be decals available soon for that scheme.

I’m hoping to see quite a few of these (& the D.500/01) built here.. yet another one of those kits that I had no intention ever to build, however have seemingly been lured in by some cursed French Modelling web. 
Locking forward to this one Enzo.. 
Cheers.. Dave

Lucky you!

Who would have thunk it, all those years ago?

A lovely little kit.

 

It looks too delicate to be dangerous. The Grim Reaper markings must be a French in joke of some sort.

What a great looking plane. I love those French camo schemes but I feel that painting au baton poilu won't do them justice...

Another great choice Enzo and another subject in the Wez Heller hoard, a very petite and delicate kit, looking forward to this one coming together too!

 

Welcome and good luck.

That's an elegant one for a change! Go on, I'd like to see the finished model...
