The Bloch 210 was a 2 engine French day and night bomber. It was initially designed in the mid 1930s and quite advanced for those days but in 1939 it was terribly obosolete. L'armée de l'air still order about 253 of them . Others were sold to Romania. The majority of those were lost in 1939-1940 and the surviving ones were flown to North Africa and the Free zone where another 47 were captured by the Luftwaffe in 1942. Of those 6 were sent to Bulgaria. In other words this was quite a rare bomber and I suspect not many of this little beauties were made for the airmen who flew it and possibly the enginers who worke don the plans. I sort of looks like the Ju52 and would probably have been a good transport plane . The socle is marber, the plane is very detailled tin/brass and was probably silvered. It is intact except the propelors which need a small restauration. The little pen holder is articulated.
