This reduced model, size 1/72 has to be made and painted oneself. 105 parts to assemble assure long moments of fun
Series production of the Noratlas commended in 1952 in France, then in Germany after the Germans acquired a manufacturing licence to equip the Luftwaffe. In total, 426 planes, all versions included, were assembles in France (239) and in Germany (187). The French Airforce used the Noratlas from 1953. The first aircraft underwent a baptism of fire in Indochina the very next year. The last of the “greys”, the affectionate nickname given to the aircraft by its crew, were decommissioned in October 1989, after 35 years of good and loyal service, finally handing over to the C.160 Transall. The career of the Luftwaffe Noratlas was shorter and ended in 1971, after the C.160 TRANSALL WAS USED FULLY TO EQUIP THE THREE TRANSPORT SQUADRONS; In France, no.105 was restored to airworthiness in 1995 by an association of enthusiasts, thanks to whom it is possible to see it in the livery it carried in Algeria during the early 1960s.
