Words and pictures by Glenn Wilson

1/72 Azur Vultee V.1A, Spanish Republic    

The fastest airliner of their time in 1934, 11 were acquired by the Republic and armed with machine-guns and fitted with internal bomb-racks for use as bombers. 4 survived the war.

This Azur kit was another nice build and allowed me to build the (to me) most interesting version of this civil air-liner turned bomber. Since the original motor was a single-row radial the kit resin item was single piece. I was very pleased to be able to replace the Dekno kit with this little beauty.
