Potez 25 TOE - a true French workhorse

   In the interwar years, the Potez 25 was one of the first mass produced aircraft to replace the obsolete surplus WW1 types. The two-seat Potez designed both for the observation and bombing duties, succeded in the contest issued by the French air force in 1923. From 1925 until 1934 the production gave large numbers of built Potez 25s due to really huge demand by the military.

   The TOE was the major production version of the Potez 25 and it served mainly in French colonies. This version featured deeper fuselage with extra fuel tanks giving the type "longer legs". The production gave a total of 795 TOEs. And we have the Potez 25 TOE for you in the 1/72 kit SH72407 . The model shown in today's photos has been built by Martin Pfeifer and portrays machine White 6, c/n 2113 that served in French Indochina.
