PAYEN-MELOT Pa.22 I/R UNICRAFT 1/72
« on: November 30, 2009, 03:30:59 pm »
Hi, a model I built the last year, the Payen-Melot Pa.22 I/R from Unicraft. It was a Roland Payen project of 1935  in association with the engineer Mélot, which invented a jet engine type "à trompes". But it was proved that this engine was not able to function himself at the take off. So, the projecte was cancelled. But it was not the end of the Roland Payen delta planes...














Beautiful planes are french! (Amiot 143, for example...ugh!)

Nice model.  But what an absolutely bonkers looking design.

Thank you, guys.

I agree with you, this aircraft is ugly...and french! :wacko:

I've got 2 other kits of Payen what-if (from Unicraft Models) and 1 kit of a real Payen(Pa.22 V5 Replica) aircraft to build...in the future...

Oh how typically French!! Interesting design though
