  1. Joined up and wings on. Happy how it's coming together. Hasegawa_172_Vking_4 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cheers, Dermot
  2. Here's mine, an Argentine Navy Dassault Breguet Super Etendard which I never knew meant 'battle flag' in French. The full build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Airfix A03060 (ex-Heller) Super Etendard Build: OOB with seatbelts from Tamiya Tape and ejection seat rings from wire Paints: Halfords plastic primer (can), Revell Acrylics (brushes); Future, Flory Models wash; W&N Satin Varnish; Pastel chalk; Oil weathering (badly!) Decals: From the kit with extra stencils from spares. Markings for #203 of Lt. Mayora, No. 2 Naval Fighter/Strike Squadron, 1982.

Enjoy your modelling. Cheers, Dermot
  3. So with the canopy, speedbrakes, pitots and aerials added, she was done! I tried some oils for the first time but might have overdone it on the grime. I'd say they were kept cleaner than this.. Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Before (1) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr But...….I had this nagging feeling about the nose gear, especially when viewed from side on. Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Before (3) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Just not right. So, deep breath, took it off (one piece luckily) and glued back on... Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Done (3) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Looking at the two pics side by side, I think it was worth the hassle. What do you think? Airfix Super Etendard Side_by_side_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Really enjoyed building this one and apart from some raised panel lines and clunky details, I think she turned out ok. Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Done (1) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Done (4) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Can't believe how 'uge those Exocet missiles are... Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Done (7) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Alongside her stablemate, also Airfix Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Done (9) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And a little map base Airfix_Heller_Super Etendard_1_72_Done (10) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Will post some more pics in the Gallery. Big thanks to @trickyrich and @Col. for hosting this really enjoyable GB and for all your comments - it is appreciated. Happy Modelling. Dermot
  4. She went to the 'shelf of doom' some time back but is being resurrected - watch this space! Cheers, Dermot
  5. Thanks everyone and turning out ok for a kit from the late-70s. Last look at the cockpit before closing up.. Hasegawa_172_Vking_3r by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cheers, Dermot
  6. Almost there now. The u/c and drop tank/Exocet are on as well as the front canopy. Will add the last bits today and she'll be done! Airfix Super Etendard Build_12 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr The blue on the tail should be much lighter and the nose gear should be more straight...ho hum. Having fun anyway. Thanks for looking. Dermot
  7. So like @Hockeyboy76 I'm also getting there on the cockpit. Just Tamiya tape for the belts and some wire for the ejection rings. Won't see much through the tinted canopy. Hasegawa_172_Vking_2R by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking. Dermot
  8. Very nice work there Jason Dermot
  9. So decals done. All of the original Airfix ones plus a few extra stencils. Airfix Super Etendard Build_11 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Weathering and final bits next. Cheers, Dermot
  10. Very nice and is a great addition to the GB Don't see many built and looking forward to it. D
  11. Nice work on that pit and must get cracking with mine! Cheers, Dermot
  12. Really enjoying this thread, great work on those two and love the weathering. From when I built the Hasegawa Hornet, I think the nose mismatch was because the lower fuselage half was slightly narrower than the top - I used a plastic spacer to help but still needed filler. Cheers, Der
