The M.S.406 was a French Armee de l'Air fighter aircraft built by Morane-Saulnier starting in 1938. It also had a parallel career in Finland. In February 1940, the first 30 French fighters were allocated to LeLv 28. These aircraft received the Finnish designations MS-301 to MS-330. They were used in combat during the Winter War, against the USSR and carried out 259 operational sorties and shot down 16 Soviet aircraft. Total Finnish kills were 121.

Morane-Saulnier MS.406

Designed to meet a 1934 French Air Ministry requirement for a single-seat fighter, the MS.406 was first flown on August 8th, 1935 (as the MS.405). With more than 1100 examples produced, the MS.406 formed the backbone of the French Air Force at the beginning of WWII. The aircraft was small and manoeuverable but lacked the power and armament of the German Bf 109Es that it typically confronted. Loses were high during the Battle of France and despite efforts to destroy remaining airframes, large numbers were captured by advancing German forces and used by the Luftwaffe as trainers.

Easy Model Platinum Collection

The Easy Model "Platinum Collection" range presents highy-affordable, ready-made plastic models of military aircraft. While these models may not have the same "heft" as their diecast siblings, they do offer remarkable value for money. Most importantly, they look perfectly at home alongside diecast modes, allowing collectors to "flesh out" their collection with types and paint-schemes not yet available in diecast.

Easy Model "Platinum Collection" display model airplanes feature:

  • Molded plastic construction.
  • Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Spinning propellers.
  • Authentic ordnance loads.
  • Permanently extended landing gear.
