1924 Dewoitine D1.bis for Royal Yugoslav Air Force
« on: June 19, 2021, 09:33:58 AM »
This 'ere is a 1/72 resin kit produced by Choroszy Modelbud. While the kit provides details and decals for test aircraft No.5 which went to Japan and sported Japanese markings, aircraft No.6 went to Yugoslavia for testing.
While the kit is fairly well done, it did sport inaccuracies and was not a straight forward build.

An interesting parasol design, it impressed the RYAF enough for them to purchase the production version D1.C1 in large numbers.

Great. Bringing any Choroszy resin to such a quality model itself deserves honours.

Another superb model from you. I too did not know of this type but am pleased to see one of the lesser known types modelled to such a very high standard.
