1/48th Super Etendard Modernise
Here are a few photos of my most recent build, the Dassault. Super-Etendard Modernise. I have always loved the sexy lines of this jet, in fact, I like most of Dassault’s jet designs. I actually fly one of their business jets, the Falcon 7X, for a living.
This is the Kinetic offering. The final product came out okay, but the kit was kind of a mixed bag. Some parts fit flawlessly while others didn’t fit at all. Fortunately, the intakes, the outboard folding wing sections and the canopy were three of the parts that fit extremely well. The decals were good as well, with no silvering and they were mostly in register. Not a shake and bake kit, but with patience it builds into a nice replica of the Super-Etendard.
