    Manufacturer: Heller
    Model type : Amiot 143
    Details : Armee de l'Air, 3rd Escadrille of the 22nd Escadre de Bombardement


    Just noticed, the small yellow wheel in the first pic is not part of the model - not sure how the heck it got there. As always, thanks for all the guidance, tips, and education.

    Very nice! I especially like the lines of rivets! Did the tail wheel break off?

    Evan is right, it does hav a bit of slab-sided Hampden about it!
    Don't know how you managed it, but you've made a Hippocroocofrog (almost) look like a princess - great job mate!
