AJP Model's 1/48 scale
by Eric Deluy
Azur's 1/48 scale Loire 130 M is available online
Here is my build of the
photo-etched catapult in 1/48 scale from AJP Model.
The kit is composed of:
48 photo-etched parts
6 resin parts,
1 aluminium part,
2 brass stems,
1 screw and
Dimensions are 80 mm high and 458 mm length, with the diameter of the
kiosk being 103 mm.
Before going further in the assembly, you provide with the tools
necessary to this one:
This is the catapult which was on the back of the cruisers
"Strasbourg and Dunkirk" in 1940. We can use this with the Azur and FM
Loire kits, which were presented in October here on HyperScale.
The catapult is painted of color mixture mixture of: U.S. Medium Gray
and Dark Sea Gray. I faded the colours with with Medium Sea Gray.
This is certainly not a model for the beginner, although the assembly
is not very complicated.
Some among you will want to add more detail.
For my part I took much pleasure throughout this assembly. It only
now remains to add to one of the Loire 130 available on the market.
