SCALE MODEL AIRCRAFT

Independent thinking and cultural diversity in scale modelling

TRIBUTE TO JEAN-PIERRE DUJIN

Dassault MD-550 Mystere Delta by Andre Roy

Speaking of diversity in aviation scale modelling, the name of Jean-Pierre Dujin can hardly be overlooked. By far the largest producer of the French cottage industry, he was also popular in other countries, e.g. in the UK for the numerous British designs released among over 300 kits in 1/72nd scale.

Such an impressive catalog tells by itself about the independent way of thinking and the high degree of aeronautical culture of Jean-Pierre Dujin, which allowed many modellers to express themselves a different way than suggested by the usual media trend.

The following gallery is a brief assortment of models made from Dujin resin kits. Not really for the beginners, these kits always require a little extra work than the "shake and bake" ones, but did not prevent some modellers to turn them out into pure jewels as one may see hereafter:
