SPAD 7.c1 built by the De Marcay. The plane is carrying 4-color cammo, typical to the De Marcay factory (but slightly different to the personal plane of L.Rayski which skin I submitted, too). Just like the L.Rayski's SPAD, the plane does not have camera access panel and hole painted, as I did not want to mess with the original layers.
This particular SPAD was purchased in 1919 and used at first as a training plane of 15th Fighter Squadron. Once the 15.EM was equipped with Fokker D.VII's the S.7's were located in Warsaw. Although in very bad condition, they were given to the newly created 19th Fighter Squadron and sent to the front to support 14th Recon Squadron located on the lituania-belarussian front.
The 19.EM appeared on the front at the beginning of May 1920 and soon was involved in dogfights with the Soviet AF which was also flying SPAD 7's. That was actually the first time when the SPAD 7's fought against the SPAD 7's. The plane was flown by W/O Guttmejer and had Polish number of 15.2 and chessboards with roundels. Also, there were original French squadron insignia painted on the fuselage.
Positive and negative comments are welcomed!

Thanks, FS, I just could not resist to paint both PAF spads. Expect some WW1 skins in the future, too :) Also, some Red Star S.7's are in the paintshop. Those should be very interesting, too.
