But according to wikipedia the Ouragan and Mystere IV had the Martin Baker Mk4 ejection seat.Why did the Super Mystere after them have another ejection seat and the Mirage IIIC again the Martin Baker Mk4?

Sud Aviation and Republic did a better job of lobbying at that time? AFAIK, fact is SMB.2 didn't use a MB of any kind until IAI fitted the Mk.6 on the Sa'ars for Honduras.

I wonder if they will do a separate set of tanks/weapons like they did in 1/72.

Would love to see a Sparkit seat, and maybe some Quinta/Kelik stuff for the cockpit. Ooh, and a Reskit exhaust!

Eduard gear doors and assorted small details.

Would the Renaissance canopy fit?

Sparkit is not planning on making a seat, citing lack of references. 😔

Super Mystère SMB2 ejection seat is the Martin Baker Mk6.

Available in 1/48 scale in resin at Wolfpack Desing under reference number WP48186.

No, it's not. The MB Mk. 6 was installed on the Sa'ars sold by Israel to Honduras. The original seat is a Republic 10-100-7 built under license in France by Sud Aviation.

Basically the F-105 seat (I  think)

Renowned Israeli modeller Yoav Efrati offers us a 1/48 Frrom & Special Hobby model of the Super Mystère SMB.2 ''Early''

No.31 in Israeli livery, in the soon to be released October 2023 issue of British magazine SAM - Scale Aircraft Modeling.

I wonder what pylons he used.....🤔


The 1/48 tanks and pylons sprues for the SMB2 kit exist. They’re produced and ready.
For whatever reasons 😉 Frrom (and Special Hobby) decided at the last minute not to include them with the current kit (likewise the green flash decal option) and release them as a separate kit (or release them in another version of the SMB2).

 

Likely modeller Efrati got the not-yet released Israeli version from the manufacturer himself together with the wing stores for exposure on facebook.
Just the usual marketing ploy of disguised publicity.

I know, weird, because they did include them with the 1/72 version.

They have shown the photos of the underwing stores sprues (and the decals for the green flash version) in one of their earlier newsletters.
A typical case of faulty communication. 🙃

Just asked Azur-Fromm...

Very quick response, the gist of it below.

 

The SMB2 sometimes flew without stores.

They have no idea when the stores will be released, and I should ask Special Hobby.....

 

A bit curt if you ask me....

Are we to assume from this Azur-Fromm are very much a minor partner in this project?

By the way, Top Gun German Modeller Matthias Becker is presenting to us a beautifull 1/48 Special Hobby/Frrom

Super Mystère SMB.2 coded 5-NJ of the ''Vendée'' Escadron at Orange-Caritat Air Base in the sixties !  

 

The metallic paint rendition and weathering of this kit is near to reality !

18 photos of this kit are presented right here on Brittmodeller's ''Ready For Inspection'' page :

have a response from Special Hobby:

"this kit was made for Azur Frrom, according to their specifications. We will release it under our own brand as well, with an additional sprue of small parts. The release is planned for this fall. It will be an Israeli version."

 

curioser and curioser....

Hardly IMHO. Project management, CAD design, tooling design and injection is SH business. SH has zero subject expertise while Azur has it. In other words Azur acts as a consultant so it doesn't decide anything but SH does. Same thing as in the Tarangus-SH Viggen.
