Vichy...1/48 Marcel Bloch MB.152, French Armistice Airforce

16/2021

For a kit with shortrun character the new Marcel Bloch isn´t so bad. But the decals are thin and the white areas are translucent, as you may see.
Camo done with Gunze RLM65 for the underside, Tamiya XF-10 Brown and selfmixed green and blue-grey for the upper camo. The stripes are painted.
First single-engined aircraft I know of that has a sideways angled engine.

  1. Stunning camouflage Reinhard. Is it possible to display an open cockpit?

  2. Looks fantastic. Those Vichy schemes were really eye-catchers.

  3. Beautiful build, Reinhard.
    Never did a French build myself, but this MB152 might be my first.

  4. Beautiful build, Reinhard!

  5. Great looking Bloch.

  6. Very nice build!

  7. Great job, Reinhard! Ausgecheiznet!

  8. Wow Reinhard, really awesome - did you paint the red and yellow stripes, the look so clean.

  9. G'day Reinhard (@grimreaper),
    This is a great build.
    I picked up the MB 155 when it was on sale earlier in the year, so I hope it comes out a good as your (when I get to it).
    I have a thing for 3 colour camouflage and yours, combined with the Vichy 'pajama' stripes, looks great.
    Liked!
