SPAD 510 (FRROM 1/72)
« on: September 11, 2022, 10:49:50 AM »
So, FRROM released what was the last French fighter biplane. The aircraft was in competition with the Dewoitine 500 to reequip the Armee de l'Air. Dewoitine won but an order was also placed for 60 SPAD 510, to maintain the activities of the Bleriot-SPAD factory.

The kit looks very nice! FRROM kits are made by Special Hobby and are now of very good quality.

I love the look of that biplane... :-love

Painting of the cockpit interior. Quite simple : aluminium overall... I've airbrushed Vallejo Metal Color 77.701 Aluminium.
I've just added seatbelts, made from Tamiya masking tape and paintbrushed in beige.
Then varnished with AK Gauzy Agent and Tamiya black panel liner applied.

After that, the fuselage received Vallejo Metal Aluminium. The undersurfaces of the wings were painted with Gunze H8 ; then the tail with AK RC Signal Red and finally the upper surfaces of the fuselage & the wings, plus the struts were painted khaki (70% Gunze H81 + 30% Gunze H305)

I open images, Khaki look great, is it French paint? I have chance to observe one sample and it was very close to FS 24098 (if I can remember well)

I've airbrushed Gauzy Agent from AK as gloss varnish ; then decals were applied in one sitting  :-green
Excellent decals I must say.
