This is my Azur 1/72 scale Breguet 27. When I saw
the box artwork for this kit I had to have one.
After an unsuccessful fight with Azur's Loire 130
(its vertically split, ill-fitting vac-form canopy finally did me in) I
was dubious about what to expect, but the Breguet turned out to be a
lovely little kit.
The cockpit is crammed with resin parts, but no
alignment guides whatsoever. Don't try and judge where the parts go
using the instruction sheet illustrations - they are hopelessly
out-of-proportion. Lots of dry-fitting is required, but everything does
fit in a logical sequence. Don't stick anything to the sidewalls
until you know exactly where everything goes- I speak from experience...
After that it's straightforward enough, with one exception. The
windscreen is vac-formed and split vertically in two parts. Ensure that
the two halves are exactly the same height when cut, because the upper
wing rests on the top. Any slight anomaly in the two halves and the
wing won't sit parallel to the ground. I also ended up making the
centre-fuselage struts from sprue, but only because I cut the kit parts
to the wrong size.
Three decal options are given, and go on beautifully, even over the wing
