SNCASE SE 210 Caravelle, maquette Linberg au 1/96
« on: December 05, 2018, 09:55:03 AM »
Hello mates, :-salut

I present you a kit that I built in 1961 or 1962, the SNCASE SE 210 Caravelle, the most famous French airliner. It is in 1/96 scale. Surface detail is very good and there are movable ailerons, landing flaps, rudder and elevons. At the end of the fuselage we find the ladder permitting to board the plane. Landing gear is retractable too with its complex landing gear covers.
But the pecularity of this kit is the clear left half-fuselage to permitt seeing the interior. There is also a transparent half pod to see the turbojet engine inside.
The artwork, one of the most beautiful by Ray Gaedke (with that of the Spirit of St Louis) :


I remember a complex kit to build... as when I was aged 16 than when I was 45 in 1989. Immatriculation is one of a De Havilland Comet I...
As I found that the clear half-fuselage had too large a surface, I decided to partly paint it, so that we have only "windows" to see inside :

The most difficult task : the assembly of the fuselage :
