Morane Saulnier Type N (Bullet) Royal Flying Corps - Toné Hippolyte Paul Bayetto.


Recommended Posts

I received the Special Hobby Grand Giveaway promotion kit late last year. And the build has been underway for six month's.

I wanted to build something small to get me back in the ´saddle´ again, in fact I think it's the smallest kit in scale 1/32?

It has been quite the journey, in the beginning I struggled a lot, and I had to take some breaks from modelling, waiting for some recuperation.

But the last month  I'm starting to feel like my self again. I am able to spend whole days at the bench now! Luckily I have almost no long term

effect from my brain damage, other than some speaking difficulties and that will absolutely not deter me from modelling. ;)

The subject has been the A.186 of one Toné Hippolyte Paul Bayetto, of which there are some great photo's on IWM.

The build: Many 'upgrades and a lot of scratched details, too many! But it involved a completely rebuild cockpit and an engine out of the spares box etc.

A Tommy's war officers figurine has been adapted to look like 'Hippolyte'.

 

It did the trick, and I'm up and running again :D

Brilliant finish Kent!  I'm glad that you're starting to feel better.

 

What color did you use for the French red?


Matt 

 

The red I used is Vallejo Game Color - Heavy Red

I don't know if it's correct, I just went with my 'gut' feeling...
