“The best resin kits around” – this is a simple definition of SBS models. Tiny Caudron C.600 is one of their superstars, currently offered in four boxes. Spanish, French military, civilian and Hungarian. Especially the civilian version is attractive for those who like interwar sports airplanes. For example, me 🙂 I chose single-seat C.600 flown by French aviatress Suzanne Kohn during her flight from Orly to Madagascar in May 1939.
SBS Caudron C.600 is a very simple model, in a good sense. The orange box hides few resin parts flawlessly cast, all with excellent and fine details, small photo-etched fret and a quite big decal sheet for three versions. As I’ve already stated elsewhere, this is a perfect candidate for anybody who wants to start with resin models. Cleaning of parts took me a couple of hours and the rest of the build was fun because everything fits so well. The only place where you should pay more attention is wing geometry and the tail wheel. It’s very fragile! For the most fun part, painting, I used Agama (Red Line) and Vallejo Metal colors. Weathering is made with Ammo and AK goodies. Decals treated by Gunze Mr. Mark Setter/Softer merged with surface nicely. My favorite Microscale varnishes were used for the finish. That’s all guys. I hope you like her as I do. Thanks for looking, comments welcome!
