Curtiss H-75 A1 Camille Plubeau GC II/4


Recommended Posts

This is the old Hobbycraft kit with a lot of surgery to rectify the many mistakes in shape and detail of this now old buddy. I did follow the great article of my now deceased friend Joël Ducasse, a master Modeller. The plane belongs to one of the best French Ace of the Battle of France, Camille Plubeau from the GC II/4, "Les petits Poucets" he is credited with 13 tallies. Certainly one of the best Armée de l'Air pilot.

Beautiful in every way! The fuel/oil stains along the fuselage sides below the fillers is especially well done! The H-75 was tailor-made for the French colors and markings! Museum quality build! :like:

Thanks folks. I thought it was time to pay tribute to the Curtiss in French hands! They did pretty well indeed!

@Zigomar, great job. Hard to believe it's the clunky Hobbycraft kit. They sure look good in French colours.

 

Cheers,

Wlad

Guten Morgen Jean,

 

it turns out perfect. Especially like this subtle weathering. Nothing overdone, it looks very realistic! And I can only echoe all the other fellows, it’s hard to believe that this is the old Hobbycraft kit. You made a gem out of it!

 

Cheers

Looks awefully good Jean. It would be nice to learn where you made improvements.

I do not have this file anymore and my model was built some time ago. I have search on French sites but it is all gone. Sincerely sorry.

Beautiful! Excellent job, very impressive Curtiss. What exactly colors did you use for french camouflage (Gunze, Tamiya)? Great build and finish !

This is what I used


*gris bleu clair. Mélange de 70% du Gunze H 67 et 30% de Gunze H 11 (blanc)
*gris bleu foncé (50% Gunze H 305 + 50% H 53)
*Kaki (Gunze H73), 
*Marron (50% H 17 + 50% H 84)

Best regards
