So when can we expect to see a Dassault-Breguet Super Étendard or anything else for that matter?

Like the gloss idea on the canopy Jemima would never have thought that would work.

Yes I have a model waiting another old kit a starfix (pre airfix) it's a bit wooley, but it will do I think !

Turning back to some ww2 this week, then I may get back to some moderns at the end of March.

This week I decided while building the Dassault Mirage III model that I would make another two flight stands for jets, one for Arid and desert games and one more for more green looking european games.

They are mounted on some MDF octagon shaped 10mm deep pieces that I picked up once in a paint shop clearance about 8 years ago. I left with about ten pieces and then had a Hotz mat made to match them for my WW1 Canvas Eagles 1/72 scale aircraft games and I also use them for ww2 larger aircraft like bombers, and DC3-JU52 para landings. Happy with them, although I may add some more bushes to the arid one I think.





Cheers
Matt
