165 Caudron - Renault C635 "Simoun" ##FINISHED##


Recommended Posts

Apologies, I had great plans to finish this tonight, having managed to retrieve and glue the side window back in, only for lighting to strike twice !

Right after I took this picture, I picked it up and , yes you've guessed it, put the opposite windows in ! 

 

So, I am now taking the front back off the aircraft and going fishing for the missing glazing, give me strength.

 

I will finish this blooming thing, it's not going to beat me !

 

Cheers Pat

That's the proper Heller GB spirit we all like to see!

 

And while you're at it, glue them in properly this time why don't you 😉

Right, so having caught up with lots of you about your own builds, perhaps I'd better get my finger out with my own.

 

Having recovered the other side windows and reattached the engine and prop for the second time, I started putting the decals on.

Now this was a bit scary as the decals are huge and let's face it, if they wrong, the build is finished !

 

However the decals behaved impeccably, so I'm delighted to call this one done :phew:

 

Let me know what what you think, and I hope you like it.

 

Cheers Pat

That one gets first place in the colourful kit charts! A real eye catcher if ever there was one. Well done Pat

Superb job Pat! The Caudron looks amazing, and great work on those mahoosive decals too. Not for the feint hearted, and neither is an overall yellow paint job. Well worth the perseverance though, and I won't mention those pesky windows. Always has to be one part of the build that plays up!

That looks really great Pat. Must have been a great relief to get the decals on.

 

And no draughts!

Theres a little bit of yellow paint on a side window, and its staying there I'm not going to risk them falling in for a 3rd time !

Cheers Pat
