Potez XXV TOE, Special Hobby 1/72


Recommended Posts

In fact very easy to build, everything just fits. I made only two modifications: the windshield is from a piece of acetate foil and the cabane struts are made using Brasstrutz (I managed to bend the original ones). The rest is out of the box - plus Tamiya XF-11 paint.

Wonderful! It could easily pass for 1/32 - actually, many of those don't show such nice detail and painting!

Thank you very much guys for your kind words.

Brasstrutz - unfortunately not available anymore, if I remember there was a thread here about the production termination. I bought it about 25 years ago at "Big H" in Colindale. Very useful stuff I must say.

Dear Marcel

 

Great build. What rigging material did you use and where did the wire wheels come from?
 

regards Toby

Thank you. The wheels are included in the kit and they were easy to make following a Polish website https://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-72-potez-25-toe-special-hobby-budowa/  (the pictures are self-explanatory).

Rigging is made using Uschi van der Rosten "Standard" material (I find Fine and Superfine OK for aerial wires but too thin for rigging).
