Well, so far it's only modified tail, but still not wings (in previous post I made typo and wrote "leading edge" to correct when meaning trailing edge - rear tip) nor landing gear covers.
Oh, and nose intake there are two parralel black lines (outward contour and panel line) - I'd change that "inner" one to "red" (that's not any contour nor movable part etc.).

Small related by-product of two threads:

Odysseus1980s Real Hellenic Wings 1912-1945
(to which I made certain humble contribution)
http://www.shipbucket.com/forums/viewto ... =20&t=4937

One of the most important planes in history of aviation as the first heavier-than-air vehicle to fly over the La Manche (English) Channel in 1909, Bleriot XI was later produced in significant numbers and used as recce aircraft in early stages of World War I.

and for thread Polish Wings
http://www.shipbucket.com/forums/viewto ... 72#p112272
(I didn't wanted to post everything at once due to number of files; rest will be posted in the coming days)
Planes in markings of Polish Air Force in France (1939-1940) can be seen in that thread.

Morane-Saulnier MS.230, first flown in 1929, was the main elementary trainer of the French Air Force in the 1930s and it's production run lasted until 1948 with around 1100 built.

Romano Ro.82 (or R.82) was an intermediate trainer produced (180 planes) between 1936 and 1940

Caudron C.630 Simoun was designed as modern touring airplane and first flown in 1934, but was also used as mail plane and military trainer.

Bleriot-SPAD S.510, first flown in 1933, was the last series-produced (in short series of 61 planes) French biplane fighter.

Nieuport-Delage NiD.52/62/72 were a family of French biplane fighters of late 1920s and used in several countries.

Loire Lo.46 was a French rip-off of Polish PZL P.7/P.11 fighters, although not so successful. It was first flown in 1934 and 61 (including prototype) were built.

Btw. both Odysseus1980 and I would appreciate comments and feedback in our respective threads. ;)

P.S. Sorry for doubleposting.

It seems that previous entry didn't met with too much interest. Well, happens... :roll:

Here are the heavier planes from the Polish Wings in France.
http://www.shipbucket.com/forums/viewto ... 72#p112272
Comments there always appreciated.

Lioré et Olivier LeO.20 was first flown in 1927 and produced in series of 320, with some being delivered to Romania and Brazil. By mid-1930s they were gradually transferred to auxilary duties.

In 1928 French Air Force demanded a heavy multi-role aircraft that could perform roles of bomber, reconnaissance aircraft and long-range escort fighter. One of the designs was Amiot 140, first flown in 1931. In the meantime Air Force revised it's expectations, concentrating on bomber role, leading to Amiot 142 and Amiot 143 prototypes (with different engines: Hispano-Suiza 12Y and Gnome-Rhône 14K respectively). Eventually Amiot 143 entered production that lasted from 1935 to 1937 (with 138 produced), followed by prototype of Amiot 144 with retractable undercarriage in 1936. Amiot 143's were quickly rendered obsolete by rapid advances on aviation technology in that era, but remained in front-line service until 1940, though by that time they were increasingly transferred to auxiliary duties.

France, Amiot 140, Amiot 142, Amiot 143, Amiot 144

Bloch MB.200 was built as a response to requirement for a medium day and night bomber and first flown in 1933. 208 aircraft were built in France beginning in 1934, and later license was bought by Czechoslovakia which built 124 more (some of them eventually ended up in Bulgaria), plus at least one was sold to Republican Spain. By 1939 French MB.200 were mostly relegated to auxilairy duties, although during Allied invasion of Syria and Lebanon (then under Vichy French control) some were used operationally by Vichy Air Force.
Many thanks to PomboCZ for his initial version of this aircraft.

Bloch MB.210 Verdun was France's first low-wing monoplane bomber with retractable undercarriage, first flown in 1934 and entered production in 1936 (with about 257 produced). It equipped 12 bomber groups of French Air Force, though by 1940 they were already in process of being replaced by more modern types. Still, some of these aircraft remained in combat use until armistice. Additionaly at least 3 were sold to Republican Spain and 10 (out of 24 ordered) to Romania. Also, some sources claim that 6 were sold to Bulgaria by Germans.

Potez 54 (540) reconnaissance/bomber was a contemporary of Amiot 143 and Bloch MB.200, first flown in 1933 and introduced into service a year later. Some 192 were produced, with few being delivered to Republican Spain and Romania.
By 1940 they were generally relegated to auxiliary duties.

Caudron C.440 Goéland family were 6-seat twin-engined light transport aircraft, first flown in 1934 and produced until after the war, with as much as 1702 produced, both for military and civilian users in many countries.

Outstanding work. I like seeing the evolution of a design through the years. :)
