Little Frenchie - Ms.406C1 in 1/72 - Done! 11 Apr 2019 09:03 #1

Hi friends,

Still on a French mood, and taking Advantage of These nice polish Detail sets for French aircraft, I present you my next endeavour:

A Little Hasegawa 1/72 Morane Saulnier Ms.406 C-1 with the complete flaps and Details sets from Detailset PL.

I am going to build the one of the "furies" - an aircraft of the Group de Chasse III/7 also known as "La Furie" in 1940. This will be the Ms.406 Number 806 (code L8235) flown by Commandant Bouvarre in Vitry-le-Francois in April 1940. It was severely damaaged in combat and each of the bullet holes was marked with a White swastika when it returned to base.

Should be a fun build, I hope. After that I will start a few models for the Cauldron of War campaign.

Thanks for watching and for your comments,

Cheers

Alex

Hello again,

quick update after a prolonged vacation week.

All fit very well and hopefully will stay so (and not bend with time).

Now ready for painting, decals and weathering.

After this I will start working on several Projects for the cauldron of war campaign.

Cheers

Alex

Hello again,

I am guessing People didn't like my frenchie very much.

Still, paint is on and now I will go on posting until the end. To me is still looking quite good.

Cheers

Alex

I'm impressed you maintain your sanity working all that tiny 72nd PE. Another one almost clear. :pilot

Thank you Chris much appreciated. Actually I find the tiny PE extremely calming and relaxing. A good jazz tune (there is an online radio I just love - no commercials and no announcements) and perhaps a cold beer and I just get lost in the tiny world.

The radio BTW is www.radioswissjazz.ch/en

Cheers

Hi Folks

Fast-forwarding a bit to finish this Project and concentrate on the Ra'am. This build has not attracted much Attention anyways...

Decals are in, weathering also. I wanted it a bit smoother but still is rather realistic, with all that PE. The small Swastikas indicate the places where bullets from a Bf.109 hit the small Morane.

I hope you like it, see you at CoF!

Cheers

Alex
