1/72 D.520 Fighter
The D520 was a French fighter aircraft that entered service in early 1940, shortly after the opening of WWII. The first prototype D520 flew in October 1938. After seizing non-occupied part of France in November 1942, Germans captured 246 D520C1 fighters, but only 182 of them were airworthy. Repainted and reequipped they served in the Luftwaffe for operational training. Some of the German captured planes were sold to German Allies, some destroyed during France Campaign in 1944 or recaptured by Free French pilots and French Resistance.
