More work this morning and to regret one problem- I have no clear close up image to see what is this panel? How its look like? Some panels are facing and some are overlapping...

Morane fuselage was of welded steel tube. Rear fuselage was covered with fabric. Front fuselage with welded aluminium panels that fitted on the tubular frame. The Frence named this 'contreplaque aluminium'! Anyway, they could be easily removed from the plane! Fokker D-XXIII used the same. but here rear part was monocoque light-alloy construction!
Just before the war before the all-monocoque construction became routine, this 'contreplaque' technique was widely used.

Thank you  :-wave Now I have final layout of this plane port side and I hope that we will have today first profile. What is interesting is that this type have variation of national markings so this roundel is used on profile is just one of variation. Note detail of pattern used on tail skid cover.
