1/48 Eduard Spad XIII

Gallery Article by Huberlu on June 30 2010


My build was not going to be out of the box but when I started this model I thought it would be over quickly.

All parts are very fine and the most beautiful I've seen from Eduard, and yet it is difficult to build.

I used Vikers from Part and Humbrol paint:

  • Black: is black....

  • Light green: Hu 90 + 2x Hu 102

  • Dark green:6x Hu116 + 6x Hu117+ 1x Hu163

  • Dark brown: 2x Hu29 + 1x Hu60 + 1x Hu33

I'm used windsock N32 and this site where you can find all you need (200 photo?):
