I had earlier picked up the old Revell kit (1/72 scale) of the Fokker E.1 for under £3, so even if it all went horribly wrong it would make only a modest dent in the defence estimates.
The Fokker was about the right size and had the correct wing quantity, so after that it was a case of determining the more distinctive characteristics of the Morane. These seemed to consist of a fully cowled engine, a pronounced fairing behind the pilot, a pointy rudder and much simpler undercart struts than the Fokker. A new rudder was made from plastic card and the fairing carved from balsa. The engine cowling was made from a piece of metal foil and the kit parts adapted to produce the undercarriage and the bracing strut arrangement in front of the pilot.
All this made it look, if not exactly like a Morane, at least a bit less like a Fokker! Painting it green helped too. A generous coat of gloss varnish was applied to fit in with the 'toy soldier' look of Tratvia's ground forces.
Incidentally, I am told that Tratvian markings are easily confused with those of a (clearly fictional) country called 'Russia'. You've been warned.
