This is the Trumpeter model at 1/32 scale, using a resin recco nose to build an F5E. Jean Claude only encounter some troubles with the fit of the resin nose. For the rest of the model it's pretty an out of the box. Jean used Testor for the paint and faded it to match closely the " in action" aspect of this colour! Parts of the markings are from the box and several are hand painted as for the name "Katie" on the left engine. All of this give us a great model !
Bird is from 34 th Photographic Recconnaissance Sqn / 10 th PG based in Chalgrove England; it was see as shown in Nothern France 6/6/1944.
