SH72308 HA-1112 M-1L Buchón "Ejército del Aire" and SH72313 Caproni Ca.311 Foreign Service

Mr. Stanislav Hajek, an excellent artist, painted these two box-arts for our new models. The first of them is the SH72313 Caproni Ca.311 “Foreign Service”. Except for British captured plane that is portrayed on the box-art the decal sheet will contain also two Croatian machines. The other model is the SH72308 HA-1112 M-1L Buchón “Ejército del Aire” in 1/72 scale. In the Buchón you will find small parts injected from metal moulds, including the rockets and their rails. Another boxing of the Buchón will draw its inspiration from a famous 1969´s aviation movie The Battle of Britain. This model will feature clipped wing tips, different armament and really very interesting movie camouflages.

  1. Dear Sir,
    I'm glad to see a new kit for the Buchón, but you are in a mistake.
    That green scheme is ficticious, it's based in misinterpretation of b/w pictures of an aircraft with wet surfaces after a storm.

    You can see there is no lighter undersides. I asked the author about this matter and he said it was... grey.
    Other picture of the same aircraft, some years later:

    This still wears the original overall blue scheme known as 'Peugeot Blue', as the story tells the paint was supplied from a local cars dealer.

    Some research made by a friend in the vintage car world suggests that gloss blue had a shade close to Humbrol 221 Garter Blue when fresh, but faded very fast.
    Later they were painted with alluminium lacquer over uper surfaces and azure blue undersurfaces.
