Hello!

 

This is Azurs Caudron CR 714 C1 in the French colours in June 1940. Pilot is ppor. Marian Lukaszewicz of 1st Escadrille GC 1/145 at the airfield of Dreux in France. Construction number is 8550, callsign I-208. The aircraft was written off after a forced landing at 8/6/40.

This is a pure out of the box build. Only areas of concern were the rear joint between wingroot and fuselage, where a real large gap had to be filled (I think the wing got warped in the box) and the placement of the cockpit front bulkhead. The lower antenna has to be tilted back on the ground or the rear wheel will not touch the ground. I used Lifecolor French paints and Humbrol Maskol for the camouflage pattern, as well as Montex masks for the canopy. The kits decals were trimmed and rearranged into the "white 11". Building the kit was a joy. Highly recommended!

 

Enjoy!

very cool build and really interesting scheme - well done! Unusual aircraft - I know little to nothing about it but guessing it was based on inter-war racing planes (sure looks like a racer....)

A strange aircraft with a wacky paint job - what's not to like! Well done, dutik. May I publish it on the website?

Very nice ! I love the paint scheme.

Caudron racing aircraft of the 30's are so weird..... I cant imagine this one in a dogfight ! Though it did fight.

It fought, yes, but apparently not very well. The Poles had limited success before losing most of the 35 they received to German fighters. The Finns disliked them so much they withdrew their's from active service before they even had a chance to see combat.

 

I believe the main problem was an under-powered engine and no room to put in something better.

Love that camo scheme.

But to call it "wacky"? :wacko:

It does what it is supposed to do, break up the contours of the airplane so it is difficult for another pilot to see it, to focus on it, to aim at it. 

This  is no more wacky than many of the Nazis schemes for their fighters. The Italians had very interesting camo schemes as did the French.

Only the Americans had the simple idea that one color on top was camouflage. That to me is wacky. But I was not there when the guys who ran the USAAF in the early 1940's were making their decisions. So I cannot say.

But all good camouflage schemes, up to stealth, are "wacky".

If you really want "wacky" look at how the USA & Brits camouflaged their ships in WW1. Those are very interesting.
