    Here are some AIM P-36 or Hawk 75s in French service.

    I haven't found anything about the uniformity of French camo patterns, or if there is any. I've painted mine random and will do so until I find out otherwise.

    Miscmini decals, paints: top camo, Vallejo 096/896 Camo Olive Green, Vallejo 159/991 Dark Sea Grey, Ben Franklin acrylic craft paint Burnt Umber, undersides craft Folkart 457 Ice Blue

    Props by Keith, 14mm.

    That’s some fine detail work, Peter! I wasn’t familiar with the aircraft and had to look it up. Niiiice

    Thanks Jeff. These little 1/200s seem sooo much smaller than 1/144, and they are!

    Hat's off to you, Peter.
    Such fine detail on tiny planes is amazing.
    I still have some decals to do on my Battle of Britain aircraft (for both sides) and need a jump start ...

    Hi Guus, thanks for these as I don't have them all. Unlike the British and Germans the French don't seem to have a regular pattern, unless I'm not seeing it.

    Same here. I think I have my Spitfires and Hurricanes finally done. More 109s to finish them off. I started my French Airforce to get some use with them in the solo campaign before I move over the channel. A few more Frenchies to go!

    Thanks David. AIM is the best. I have to go to Shapeways for some Bolch 151s and others. The detail is not there like AIM but at least they are available.

    Superb decal sheet but a small mistake has been made:
    H-75 A2 serial number 129 (5-tail) coded UO-29 does not belong to the 3rd "Sioux LaFayette" squadron but to the 4th "Stork" squadron.

    Beautiful H-75s! Nice detail additions you added. Where did you get the propellers?

    Thanks Peter

    The propellers are "fait maison " homemade using flexible plastic cut in 1 mm x 7 mm and glued with cyanoacrylate.
