The Dewoitine D.510 was a reengined version of the D.500, with a more powerful 860hp engine. The D.500 was designed to replace earlier biplanes and entered service in 1935, soon followed by the D.510. The aircraft was popular with pilots and served with front line units of the French Air Force until 1939, when the superior Ms.406 entered service. After that they were deployed in units away from the front line, such as in French controlled North Africa. They saw combat in the Spanish Civil War and Sino-Japanese war in the late 30's.

KPM are part of AZ Models, a Czech based manufacturer with a wide range of kits. The D.510 is a short run style kit but looks nicely detailed and should make a nice model. It is better suited to an experienced modeller and will require more care to build than a mainstream kit. Decals are included for 3 French aircraft.
