If you missed Jean-Luc''s entry in Septembers Aircraft Model of the Month (MOM) then here is another chance to see this superb 1/32nd Storch. If you did see the entry here are some more pics with the bonus of showing some pictures of the original aircraft.

Hi Phil!

The Storch was hired by the Bouglione brothers from his Czechoslovakian owner, the trapeze artist Robert Kellners. So the plane was registred in Czechoslovakia...

Thanks Mal for getting them "online"...

OK- Czechoslovakia (Czech and Slovak (Soc./Fed.) Republic, CSSR/CSFR/CSR) AAA - ZZZ N 1928 - 12/31/1992, Czech Republic (also Chechia, 1918 to 12/31/1992 Czechoslovakia)

Landings

I note the Czech tail flash. A Czech German Storch in France? Cool!

Hi Roxter!

I used Hasegawa's 1/32 scale kit in the Revell reboxing. The decals are home made using a laser printer and transparent decal paper...
