The Potez 62 was a development from the Potez 54 bomber, and it first flew on January 28, 1935.
The fuselage was all wood, and had a composite coating. The wings were also made out of wood, and fabric covered, but it had a leading edge made out of metal. The engines were mounted in two pods, fixed at the fuselage and at the wings.
The cabin was divided into two compartments and could accommodate 14 to 16 people. The version equipped with Hispano-Suiza’s V-engines was ordered by Air France in 1936, but I plan to model the original design with radial engines. The Potez 62 remained in service until the Second World War, and one of them was used by the Free French Air Force.
