Etandard IV P, Heller 1/48
« on: April 03, 2019, 09:50:17 PM »
Finally something out of regular work- free build project. It is rarely seen from my side any build which is not free sample, this one have been obtained as trade on local market (not good idea, I hope all parts are here). Kit is Heller, 1/48 scale and very good engraveings. My intention is to built it strait from the box, absolute not update. Need some relaxation so this look like great idea. Kit is so easy to build and elements match with easy, tomorrow will be day for filler but I am not sure it will demand much.

Great build!
I like that aircraft for a particular reason: don't remember the name of the website, but an American site about aviation presented the Etendard IV P as an aircraft used by French navy... But also by Belgian navy!!!
Still in my meaning to build a "what-if" one of those days ;-)
