Nord Aviation N 2501D Noratlas - 1/72

The Nord Noratlas was a 1950s French military transport aircraft intended to replace the older types in service at the end of World War II. Several hundred were produced in a run lasting over a decade, finding a wide variety of uses.

West Germany, faced with the same situation that had prompted the development of the Noratlas, eventually ordered a total of 186 Noratlases from 1956 on, of which 25 were built in France, and the other 161 manufactured in West Germany by Flugzeugbau Nord under contract, designated N-2501D. Of these aircraft only 173 were delivered. The German Air Force began selling its Noratlases in 1964, and is the source for most of the aircraft for the smaller national operators listed below.
